Rules: All fish must meet the minimum size limit as set by the DNR for public waters in the state the were caught. All fish must be photographed and include the tournament entry card.. Any measuring device will work. Make sure I can see the whole fish. Points will be given to the nearest inch. So, if it is close to the half inch, you better make sure you take a good picture(s) so I can tell. Failure to provide a good picture will result in rounding down or the fish will be disqualified. REMEMBER this is for fun. Don't make this hard on me. You cheat, you're out. The categories are below and you can enter as many fish as in parenthesis per category. Yes, you can upgrade your catch throughout the contest. I will tally the scores and update the leaderboard regularly. Good luck and most of all LET'S HAVE SOME FUN!!!!
