Angler of the Year (AOY) Structure

Our Angler of the Year Structure is simple: you get a point for every inch of fish.  



For each tournament you participate in your total submitted length will be added to your points total.  Your top 5 tournament totals will be counted to your total AOY points on the season. 

So if you catch and submit 100" in 4 tournaments, but only 50" in two tournaments, your total points will be 450, as we will drop the lowest totals and only count your top 5.
