The following species are eligible to be entered into the Fishing Comp UK:

The competition is open from the 0:01 BST on the 1st of June 2018 and runs until 23:59 hrs on the 31st of May 2019.
Each month, we will select at random, one of the species eligible for the Fishing Comp. The largest fish that has been submitted during that month from this nominated species will win £100 worth of FIIISH Lures or HTO Lures tackle. The months will alternate between FIIISH and HTO.
For the purposes of eligibility for the monthly prize draws, the date used is the date of upload of the entry to www.fishingcomp.co.uk, not the date caught. All fish must have been caught during the competition season.
Annual prizes are awarded at the end of each season. Prizes will be awarded within 28 days of the season close, unless otherwise stated or mitigating circumstances require an extension.
The longest fish in each species category will be awarded a prize.
The longest fish in each species category will be the winner of that species category.
The overall Fishing Comp winning entry will be determined by its length measured against the species target length as a percentage. The largest percentage over the target length will be the overall winner *. In the event no fish is over the target length, the closest percentage to 100% will be the winner **.
Target Lengths for each species are as follows:
* Example A: The overall Fishing Comp winner is a bass of 82cm which is 113.8% of the target length.
** Example B: The overall Fishing Comp winner is a perch of 38cm which is 95% of 40cm.
In the eventuality of a tie (two fish in a species category being of identical length) the fish which was submitted the earliest will be the winner. I.E. the fish with the earliest upload date wins.
