Weigh slips are to be turned into Balboa Angling Club for recording within 5 days of catch.  All qualifying weigh slips are to be turned in no later than September 9th at 5:00 p.m.  Please print your name and telephone number on each weigh slip.

All Game Fish must weigh at least 1 lb. and be of legal size according to the California Department of Fish and Game.

Point System:  1 Point per Fish Species caught

Awards:  The angler with the highest total points in each division will receive a Top Angler Award.

There is a 1st Place Award in both Small Fry (5 to 10) and Junior’s (11 to 15) age groups for the largest fish of each Game Fish Species.

A Conservation Award will be awarded to the Top Angler that has the most released Game Fish.
