This is a CP(E)R “Catch Photo (Encourage) Release” Tournament for the members of the Mobile Bay Kayak Fishing Association.

Please note this is a members ONLY tournament. All anglers are encouraged to participate, but must become MBKFA members prior to registering.

The top angler that accrues the most points at the end of the year will be crowned "Angler of the Year". We have twenty target species, plus two wild card spots (fish that are not on the list).

You can fish any PUBLIC waters with no boundaries, day or night. All fish must be caught from a paddle craft (Kayak, Canoe, SUP Board) and photos must be taken from the vessel.

Rules and Regulations

  

• Goes from January 1, 2016 to November 27th, 2016 @ Midnight with the winner being announced at December Fish-out TBA.

• All Public Waters not just Alabama (So if you're vacationing or take a trip out of state it counts). Public ponds/lake are acceptable, private waters of any kind are a disqualification.

• All fish must be caught from a Kayak, if wade fishing, you must be tethered to your launched kayak, no more than 20 feet away.

• You will get 1 point per inch, on all eligible fish, with a maximum of 30 points per a species, measurement will be to the 1/4". See bottom of page for eligible fish.

• You may increase the size of any species throughout the year; however, you only get credit for that species once.

• All photos must include Token on a legal and legible measuring board (Measuring device must be bump board type Hard L-shape in Imperial measurements - NO metric. No loose tape measure or sliding/folding boards.) WE strongly suggest that each angler use a Hawg Trough board. This year with the rule changes it will be a close competition and we will be strict on measurements and the photos so it will be each angler’s responsibility to post the best photo of fish to get full credit.

• Token MUST be prominent part of photo. It will need to be on fish or lay to the side of fish, NO sticking it to the board. Token could contain a Sponsor, and we owe them the courtesy of a readily visible logo.

• The photo of fish must be in the kayak (No dock photos) head to left, belly towards the angler. No pinching of the tail, as it lies, with mouth against the bump board. Take plenty of pictures, if there’s a problem with photo the fish will be disqualified.

• Photos must be entered in the “iAngler” MBKFA 2016 Angler of Year App or website. All photos should be posted within 72 hours of when caught. (Honor system will be employed, put it up as soon as possible. If found to be holding photo for later they will not be counted). In case of tie the angler who posted their qualified fish first will win tie breaker; unless maximum length is measured. If there are 2 or more fish that measure over 30” (in a single category) a blind draw will determine the winner, of that category.

• Three places will be awarded "Angler of Year" 1st , 2nd, and 3rd place

• No Mother-shipping allowed! With the popularity of electric motors on kayak they are approved in this tournament only; however, it must be legal and abide by all state laws. Registration, tag, lights etc.
