After carefully examining photo details and cross-referencing other photos submitted for scoring by the same angler in the same event, if the event judge is NOT able to verify with 100% confidence that the marks in the photo are valid, then the photo will be denied.

    B. Competitor’s watercraft clearly visible

    C. Team Number on Tag or on back of hand that has only 3 to 4 fingers spread out behind the Gills holding the fish in place in the Middle of the fish but not covering more than Half the fish from top to bottom. HINT Judges Need to see the top half of the fish.

    D. Fish, as depicted below:


    Sponsors

    i. Facing left on a measuring device, left side of the fish visible, dorsal fin toward the top of the photo

    ii. Mouth completely closed with jaw and/or lips touching the “fence.” Position camera lens directly over the center of the fish’s body to aid judges in determining that fish’ mouth is closed and in contact with the fence. Photos judged to have been taken deliberately at an angle in order to make the fish appear longer may be disqualified at the Tournament Director’s discretion.

    iii. Tail centered and its tip in contact with the measuring device.

    iv. To confirm that the fish is alive, the fish’s eye must be uncovered in the photo. Photos of fish that appear to be dead, mutilated, frozen or similarly damaged will be disqualified without scoring. Photos of fish that appear to have been mangled, mashed, mauled or otherwise altered in ways that increase their length will be disqualified or approved for scoring at the discretion of the Tournament Director.

    v. Securing the fish with any portion of a hand under the fish’s gill flap is prohibited.

    vi. All photos become property of the San Diego Bay Anglers

  15. SCORING:

    A. The tournament is a catch, photo, and release format.

    B. Fish length is determined by its tail touching or crossing a quarter-inch line on the measuring device. If it falls short of a line, the length is rounded down to the nearest 1/4-inch mark that the fish’ tail actually touches or crosses. Angling the fish to achieve additional length will not result in a higher score and may result in deduction in length. If a fish is submitted and rejected, it cannot be resubmitted. The judge’s decision is final and not subject to debate. Any attempt to discredit judges or San Diego Anglers via social media or any other methods will result in immediate DQ and no refunds permitted.

    C. In the event of an exact tie in aggregate score, ties will be broken according to the highest single -fish score will be compared and the higher score will be determining the outcome. If both Competitors’ highest single-fish score, too, is identical, then the second highest single-fish score of both Competitors will be compared, and so on until the tie is broken by the highest single-fish score.

    D. Grading criteria: the following standards in approving or disqualifying photos, and in accepting or adjusting lengths.
