2022 Yearlong Rules changes

New this year is the use of an Ace from a deck of cards to identify an entry for the Yearlong Tournament. An ace of any suit will serve as the 2022 marker. Just place it on or next to a fish before photographing it. Carry all four in case one gets wet or ruined. It’s your ace in the hole!

The playing card to use for the Spring and Fall Run tournaments will be announced by the Tournament Coordinator shortly before the start of the tournament.

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.
