General Rules:

This is a Kayak or Canoe Bass Fishing tournament.  If two people compete from the same canoe; both must be registered. 

Measured in length, catch & submit FIVE (5) Smallmouth or Larhemouth Bass from tournament waters.  The greatest combined length WINS!  

YOU MUST FOLLOW ALL NYS FISHING REGULATIONS

MEASURING: Hawg Trough, Ketch board, or Rapala magnum rulers are the only approved measuring boards.  Unless pre-approved by tournament director. Please do your best! We will do our best to credit anglers and maintain integrity. 

Remember we ROUND DOWN to the nearest ¼ inch.

 -The lure must be out of the fishes mouth when measuring so as to not obstruct accurate measurement. Failure to do so will result in a denied submission.

-The Identifier Code that is given to you BY YOUR DIRECTOR must be visible in every single submission. You can write it on a card, paper or even write it big and clear on your hand! Keep in mind the card with the identifier on it may never be on or touching the fish. The submission will not count!!!

 -Measure the Fish CORRECTLY: EVERY submission must be the following: 

 -The MOUTH must be facing LEFT in the picture to the judges view, Mouth COMPLETELY CLOSED and touching the bump fence! If you hold the fish firmly snug it up against the bump fence, the mouth will close.

 -DEDUCTION of .25  inch, if the mouth is open even slightly!

-The TAIL to the RIGHT (NO tail pinching in the picture) it will be denied!!!

-Dorsal fin UP

-Only one hand is allowed in the picture BUT may NEVER be placed inside the gill of the fish or touching the face. These will Result in a Denied Catch!!

*******TAIL PINCHING IS NOT ALLOWED in the submitted pic, however you can pinch the tail prior to taking the picture.

FAILURE TO MEASURE THE FISH FROM LEFT TO RIGHT, WILL BE DENIED!

Tie breakers will be determined by the largest fish in order 1,2,3,4,5.  If an additional tie breaker is required, it will be determined by the earliest time stamp submission of the largest fish from each angler.
