How are catches submitted and judged?

Once you register for an event via you will have access to upload images during the tournament using your mobile phone.  Tournament Directors will be judging catches throughout the event.   For a more detailed explanation, Click Here.

What if there is a tie?

Our tiebreaker rules are very simple. 
1 - Points - Our AOY points will always be the definitive differentiator between competitors.
2 - Total measurement - If AOY points are the same then the total length across all events is the next measurement.
3 - Biggest Bass - If total measurement is equal then the biggest bass across the events is next.
4 - Earliest Biggest Bass - Lastly if by chance the biggest bass match then the one which was submitted the earliest will be declared the winner.   Let's hope it doesn't come to this.

What's a good catch image look like?

This is a perfect summary of what the picture needs to look like.  Keys to a good (and acceptable) photo:

  • Identifier is clearly visible. 

  • Your hand can be on the fish, but not UNDER the gill plate.

  • The fish's eye is clearly visible

  • The fish is facing the left, with the measuring board in the same orientation (smaller numbers on the left).

  • The fish's mouth is closed. 

  • The fish's mouth/jaw is touching the end of the bump board. Placing a sticker here helps us see this in the photos for judging too. 


In addition you need to make sure GPS and location settings are enabled on your phone so that the image location can be verified.
