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.

-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!!

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