On both Saturday and Sunday afternoon at around 1.30pm the Bream Tournament boats will pull up at Moreton Bay Trailer Boat Club for their live weigh-ins, this is a first for the competition having the boats pull up in front of the weighing station and taking the fish straight from the boats to the scales. The boats will be open for inspection and you can talk to the teams after the weigh in is finished each day.
