2021 Rules changes

New this year is the use of a poker chip that must be placed on or next to a fish before photographing it.

Tokens are available at Maridee’s Bait and Tackle, Quaker Lane Bait and Tackle, or a Tournament Committee Member.

Spring Run Classic

New Bluefish Rules

Two options are acceptable:

  • Weigh the fish at any official weigh station with a digital scale and obtain a signed receipt
  • Catch & Release – use a digital type scale to weigh the fish and obtain a witness signature

Then, follow the directions on the affidavit for recording your catch

Fish measurement and photographing

All fish entered into tournaments are to be clearly measured and photographed and show the tournament token.

Good example of fish measurement clearly showing ruler and ID card.
