The winner will be the competitor with the heaviest 3 fish bag at the end of the day.
If any competitor has killed their 3 fish limit before 3pm, they will be awarded a ‘time bonus’ of 1lb per hour for each full hour remaining.

It will depend on numbers confirmed nearer the time whether it takes place on the top or bottom lake, or both.
