Australian Anglers Association, (WA Division) Inc.

2002/2003 State Boat Angling Championships.

The 2003 State Boat Angling Championships were held on Saturday 22 February 2003 and hosted by the Lancelin Angling and Aquatic Club at their club house in Hopkins Street, Lancelin. This event was organised by the AAA Boating Sub Committee and was open to any member of a club affiliated with the Australian Anglers Association.

The championships had an attendance of 195 anglers and 71 boats.

The boats were launched off the beach at Lancelin. There was a fair bit of sea weed along the shore, so the big machine was called in to clean the weed off the beach. Several tractors were used to launch and retrieve many of the boats.

After the really good weather on Friday, the Saturday weather started off looking like the typical "you should have been here yesterday" type - some rain during the night and a steady westerly wind with threatening clouds. But the clouds cleared, the wind eased and didn't change much during the fishing time, the swell wasn't too big, and most boats were able to go where they wanted.

The event started at 5.00 am with the sign on at the club house, with the weigh in and presentations in the late afternoon.

There were both team and individual events and these were divided into four divisions:- Open, Ladies, Veterans (over 55 years) and Juniors (12 to 16 years) and so caters for participation by all the family.

The scoring for the championship encouraged people to catch a range of species of fish. Points were awarded based on the number of eligible species weighed plus four points per kilogram of total bag weight. Each entrant was allowed to weigh in only ONE fish of each nominated species. The points for species increased as more species were entered.

Clubs nominated teams in each class prior to the start of Championship. Mens teams could have a maximum of seven people, while Ladies teams, Veterans teams, and Juniors teams could have a maximum of four people.

For Mens team scoring, the best six results were counted, with the seventh result not included in the score. For Ladies, Veterans and Juniors team scoring, the best three results were counted, with the fourth result not included in the score.

The individual and team points from this event go towards an overall individual and club championship over all four divisions run by AAA, Beach & Rock, Boat Angling, Estuary Angling and Dry Casting.
