Measuring & Submitting Fish
• ONLY THE TAPE PROVIDED CAN BE USED TO SUBMIT A FISH!! WE WILL NOT ACCEPT ANY SUBMISSION ON ANY OTHER MEASURING DEVICE
• Fish should be immediately recorded for submission as soon as they are caught.
• All submissions must include two photographs – One of the participant holding the fish and one of the fish on the measuring tape with the tournament card visible.
• Measurements must be on the measuring tape provided with the tournament card visible.
• You must close the fish’s mouth and place the fish on the tape with the lip on the left side as you take the photo (The belly will be facing you). The fish’s tail should be squeezed to determine length. Take the photo in a horizontal position, so that both the fish’s nose, and the tail, which is indicating the measurement, are clearly depicted. If we can’t read the measurements or see the entire fish on the tape your submission will not be accepted.
• Text the 2 photos with your name to the phone number(s) on your tournament card Immediately!!!
• If the fish’s tail is touching the graduation line on the tape then that is the exact measurement for that fish. If the fish’s tail crosses the graduation line, then the measurement will be rounded up to the next highest ¼ inch.
• We prefer that all fish be released in order to help sustain our fishery but ultimately as long as all DNR rules & regs are followed it’s the anglers choice
• No sharing autos, rods, tip-ups or any other fish catching device. You can have 3 lines in the water and can not pass a rod off or have a rod passed off to you. Fish your lines & holes only.
• All participants must have their fish submitted before the 1:30pm horn marking the end of the tournament.
Ties and Tiebreakers
The tournament directors will use the time submitted to break ties. First photo submitted takes the position. If a winner cannot be determined, then a tie could result in shared prizes. E.g. in the event of a tie for the largest fish, the prize winnings might be combined and shared equally between the two participants.
Laws and Regulations
All federal, state, and local laws and all fishing regulations must be followed.
Failure to comply with any tournament rules subjects participants to disqualification and removal from the competition, as determined by the tournament officials. The right to refuse entry and/or revoke a registration to anyone is hereby reserved.
All protests must be brought to the tournament directors before the close of the tournament.
Anyone caught breaking the law or disobeying the rules can be disqualified. Fish must be hooked and caught live in a conventional sporting manner. Fish cannot be snagged, netted, speared, etc.
