Measuring & Photo Documenting
-All photos must be taken through the FishDonkey app and measurements must be on a valid measuring board.
-Fish should be recorded immediately and measurements noted by length.
-All submissions must include at least two photographs: 1) A pic of you holding the fish 2) A pic of the fish on the measuring board.
-Close the fish’s mouth. The nose should touch the bump of the measuring board (the belly is facing you). The measurement photo needs to include the entire fish on the board.
-If the fishtail is touching the graduation line on the board then that is the exact measurement. If the tail crosses the graduation line, round up 1/4″.
-All participants must have their fish submitted before the end of the tournament.

All measuring devices must be commercially made. You are required to have a board with a 90-degree bend that marks 0, and at least ¼” lines. No handmade measuring boards, stickers, or tape measures allowed. No sliding, retractable, or foldable measuring devices are allowed unless approved by the tournament director. If your measurement is not clearly readable in your submission photo, it may not be accepted or could be penalized. Any mass-produced commercial-grade bump board with clear numbering to 1/4″ accuracy would most likely be accepted. Contact [email protected] for specific measuring board inquiries.
