Kayak Challenge Official Tournament Page: Post Your Offshore Catches Here!

Sam HSam H Senior MemberPosts: 279 Officer
This is the official place to post your offshore catches for the Florida Sportsman Kayak Challenge.

THIS THREAD IS CLOSED. The tournament is finished. The scores have been tallied. Thanks to all participants, it was a great tourney!

Guideline for posting your tournament photos:

>Each angler in the tournament must be a member of the Florida Sportsman Forums.

>With your fish catch photo, include the date posted, the length of the fish and the species of fish in the forum post. In each photo, your paddlecraft (kayak) and the tournament token must be present. Tokens will be sent to your email May 31 (or the day of your registration if it's after June 1).

>Anglers may update and upgrade their fish as they catch better fish throughout the tournament. But to keep this thread from becoming too large, edit your first post where you posted photos initially. (As an example, you posted a picture of a redfish on June 4. Then on June 10, you catch a bigger redfish. Replace the existing photo with the new redfish catch.) Keep all your catch photos in one post within the thread.

>IMPORTANT: Up to 2 photos will be allowed for one entry to qualify all rules criteria, but they must be submitted in the same day. This is very important for large fish catches, particularly offshore fish. One photo can verify the catch on the water by kayak–that means take a photo of the fish right after you caught it! The second photo can be shot from the shore to show an exact, accurate measurement. The tournament token must be present in both photos.

>Anglers may not intentionally hold back catches until the end of a tournament. In good faith, fish should be checked in within a couple days of the catch (72 hours is the max).

>No comments or replies will be allowed on this thread. We want to keep things simple and organized.

"Big Fish" Weekly Winners: (Understand that the tournament format allows participants to post catches up to 72 hours past the day they fished. The weekly winner will be decided by the date the forum poster posted the images of their catches. Example: The winner of the second week will be picked on June 18. An angler who posted fish on Tuesday June 12, but caught the fish on Saturday June 10, will be eligible for the second week.)
