Personal watercraft – herein referred to as “Craft”:
Craft must make own way to the fishing grounds from a publicly accessible launch spot or with permission of the land owner (ie private dock)
Craft MAY be assisted by other vessels to return to beach/launch site, or weigh in ONLY (ie no “mothership” fishing), or adverse weather conditions – but craft must return with fisher and some evidence of catch from craft may be required in case of dispute – photos/video.
West Coast Outdoor Adventure reserves the right to end “prize” offering or withdraw prize, if PREDICTED WIND via Big Wave Dave / Gordons Beach is forecast to be 15kt or greater, fishers must weigh in catch within 1 hour of predicted wind speed increase.
Largest fish weighed in before wind safety cut off each day will stand.
Fishers may continue to fish under Saltwater Series / Derby rules and conditions AT THEIR OWN RISK.
West Coast Outdoor Adventure wishes to advocate SAFETY FIRST. Prize offerings withdrawn to deter fishing in adverse weather.
