    We are proud to announce that a new series of competitions are being announced here on DeeperBlue.net - the Fish of the Month!

    The idea of the competition is to have a friendly little monthly competition for our regional members and give them a chance to win some prizes and kudos!

    The overall competition is being sponsored by Spearo.co.uk for the UK & Ireland and Channel Islands Fish of the Month.

    There are monthly prizes and an annual prize, all of which will be voted on by you - the members.

    So without further ado - here are the details for the UK & Ireland Fish of the Month Competition:

    Start Date
    Entries will be accepted from 1st April (and no - this isn't an April Fools).

    The Rules
    1. Entrant must have posted at least 5 times at or before the last day of the previous month to the current competition.
    2. All entries to be accompanied by a photo. The photo must contain an item (e.g. a local newspaper) dated on the date of the catch.
    3. All species are included except scallops(crabs and lobsters are OK) and BSA minimum size limits should be observed.
    4. All entries must be in by 23:59hrs GMT on 2nd of following month. (e.g. April entries to be in by 2nd May)
    5. All winners chosen by popular vote on poll. A draw will result in the first posted entry winning
    6. Voting will last for 5 days once poll has been set up.
    7. You can enter as many times as you like every month but you will be asked to nominate which entry to forward to the poll
    8. In the event of there being 20 or more individuals entering the competition a short list of 20 will be chosen by DeeperBlue.net staff
    9. All decisions made by DeeperBlue.net staff are final
    Prizes
    There are numerous types of prizes. Monthly winners will get T-Shirts (either from DeeperBlue.net, Seven Tenths or Fourth Element). The annual prize is being donated from Spearo.co.uk

    I hope Cuttlefish are included otherwise im gonna feel like a right tit:)

    shot this chappy to the right of the reef. he just swam straight under me and took off like a rocket, There was black clouds of ink everywhere I cant believe how much ink come out of them, started freaking me out a bit with all the colours it kept changing but all I could see were breadcrumbed strips with squeezed lemon and new pototoes rofl

    It has to be a winner just for the comedy value! A good friend of mine shot one a few years back and watching him try to deal with it was hilarious...

    Well done Scott.

    Had a fairly productive day today. Tried 2 different locations and to my surprise i got lucky on both. nothing huge but 4 fish on my first day of the year isnt bad. Lovely day for it too. Hope there isnt a problem with the date on the tv guide had it on tomorrows page.oops!!!!
    Good job on the cuttle scott. Ive never even seen one in irish waters. Bet it tasted good too.:)

    Hit the 2 plaice on my second location within 5 minutes of eachother. the ragworm are breeding so it perfect season for plaice lads. There everywhere!!
    The pollock.........well what can i say, there pollock, but there back. A sign of nice weather anyway!!!

    Happy huntin'
    Johnny.
