I know I'm not a member but I'd love it if you took inedible fish of your score sheet and raised the weight. If that was done I'd join the club and dive your comps.
The exact reason we have the Vic Challenge Greg! And Paul the only size changes were Trev to 400grams(still a little Trev) Banded mowong to 500grams(bloody small still) and Zeb to 500! And how many juniors would have a chance at those fish??? Zebs would be their best chance.
These changes don't deter juniors! When competitions are held all over the state its a bit hard for parents to get these young kids to the locations! Then when the parents see some of the conditions we dive (hence why we try to pick better conditions) they are less likely to let them dive. Not every kid has a dad who also spears! We have a lot more 18-20 odd guys around the club than we have ever had....
