Q: Are any type of boats allowed to be used during the CFN Fish Off?
For the online CFN Fish Off, any type of boat with any type of motor can be used. However, for those teams that move on to the CFN Fish Off tournament that will be filmed for television, only non-gas powered boats can be used (eg. kayak, canoe, inflatables, electric trolling motors).
Q: How does the kids rule work?
If a team brings kids fishing with them, and those kids catch a fish, those catches can count towards your team’s score. This rule is put in place to encourage teams to bring kids fishing with them so we can get more children outdoors enjoying the wonders of nature and the amazing sport of fishing.
– For the tournament a “kid” is classified someone 17 years or younger that does not require a fishing license.
Q: Does my CFN Fish Off partner need to live in the same province as me?
Yes. CFN Fish Off online teams need to represent the same province. If your team ends of winning the tournament, you will be asked to compete for your province in the CFN Fish Off TV show.
Q: Do I need to measure every catch?
NO. An angler can choose to submit an unmeasured fish and receive 1 point for the fish (provided that it is clearly over the 8 inch minimum length. If your catch is shorter than the top 3 fish on the species chart, measuring your catch is not required since it is only a 1 point fish. It is best to release the fish as soon as possible without measuring. Submission videos still need all the necessary elements to qualify.
Q: Do I need a partner for the Summer Slam or Winter Fish Fest?
No. The CFN Summer Slam and Winter Fish Fest online tournaments are both individual competitions. No partner needed. An in-province partner is needed for the main CFN Fish Off online tournament.
