The iAngler "Freshwater Weekend - Round 2" tournament is part of the "Virtual Fishing Tournament Series" hosted by the Snook & Gamefish Foundation. The purpose of this event is to introduce the iAngler-Tournament system to anglers. iAngler-Tournament is part of the Angler Action Program (AAP) family, which is the only recreational-angler owned database that has been used in official state level stock assessments. It was designed to capture fishing data from tournaments. This data, like all AAP data, will be presented to scientists to help assess fish population dynamics.
In this tournament, you can fish in your favorite location, targeting your favorite freshwater, inshore, or offshore species, and log your catch electronically. You'll be competing against anglers throughout the United States and, possibly, the world! It is important to note that your exact location is not shared - GPS coordinates are truncated plus location info does not show on public leaderboards. This event is LIVE, so it is also important to record accurate data as it will be part of the data pool shared with scientists.
All fish that are logged appropriately (see rules section) will be worth points. However, we've given you three species to target for big points: Large Mouth Bass, Channel Catfish, and Walleye. So no matter where you like to fish, you should be able to target one of these heavy hitters! But remember, ALL fish caught during the tournament will be worth some points, and all fish should be photographed and logged.
"Freshwater Weekend - Round 2" is a free tournament. When you register, use the coupon code "iAngler."
All catch information should be submitted via the "iAngler Tournament" mobile app. The app is free and can be downloaded from the iTunes or Google Play app stores.
So how do you sign up? Easy. Simply visit the website, www.ianglertournament.com or download the free app. Fill out your profile (creating a password and username, entering basic info), then click "Freshwater Weekend - Round 2" in the upcoming tournament section. Register for free and you are all set! Remember you can practice before the real event by entering 'mock' fish in the practice tournament, also located in the upcoming tournament section.
We appreciate your participation and contribution to fishery science!

Rules and RegulationsClick to Read
1. All fish must must be photographed to be counted for points. The photo must be included in the catch log submission via the iAngler Tournament mobile application. For release tips, please visit our article here: http://www.snookfoundation.org/news/fishing/569-best-a-quickest-shots.html
2. Per state law, some fish can be photographed in the water, and released to constitute a catch. Fish must be logged in the mobile app at time of release to avoid disqualification.
3. Fish photos can either show the fish against a measuring device, OR even better a photo demonstrating a great release! Length of fish DOES NOT count for points, however this is a live data event so please measure your fish as accurately as possible.
4. Only legal fish catching methods apply, hook and line only. (You can find your state's fishing regulations in the app!)
5. ONLY the angler can cast, hook, and fight the fish. If there are two anglers fishing, there should be two anglers in the event. (We will be drawing random anglers for prizes - do some good for science, get your friends to sign up!)
6. Target fish - Large Mouth Bass, Channel Catfish, and Walleye - will be awarded 100 points for every logged fish that includes a photo, estimated length and location. EVERY OTHER FISH CAUGHT WILL BE WORTH 15 POINTS - they also must be caught via legal hook and line methods.
7. Ties will be awarded to the Angler who catches the last fish first.
8. The penalty for any violation of the rules is NO POINTS for the day. All protests must be in writing and signed. They must be presented to the Rules Committee within one hour of LINES OUT on the day of the violation (Midnight). If a formal complaint is filed, iAngler Tournament reserves the right to request a lie detector test from the team in question.
9. Anglers may fish from land, structures such as piers and bridges, or boat. Basically any legal means and locations for fishing will count.
10. Awards will be given for five (5) categories:
a) Grand Champion: Angler with highest overall point total. Must include at least one of the Big Three species (Large Mouth Bass, Channel Catfish, and Walleye)
b) Division Champion: Angler with most catches of each of the Big Three. (Each division receives one award)
c) Species Champion: Awarded to angler who submits legal catch logs of the most number of different species and sub-species (as defined by list in iAngler-Tournament).
11. No cheating! We don't like cheaters, especially when the event is designed to collect research data. Anglers caught cheating will be forced to wear a t-shirt that reads "I cheated in free a research event" and forced to sit in the penalty box for 2 minutes to feel shame.
12. Any angler who participates in this event will be eligible to win a prize! We will draw names in a lottery fashion, where all anglers have equal chance to win. Anglers can only win ONE prize - this includes the 5 awards. (If the Grand Champion also has the most Large Mouth Bass, the second award will go to the next in line. Champions will not be eligible for random prize drawings.)
13. Did we mention we don't like cheaters? Don't cheat. It makes you look puny.
14. Call SGF director Brett Fitzgerald with any questions. (561) 707-8923
15. Finally: Have fun! Enjoy this new technology. Tell your friends, invite them to watch you battle your way up the leaderboard. Be safe, observe all state and federal laws, but for pete's sake, log your fish. By doing so, you become part of the process towards building a brighter fishing future. After the tournament, jump into the deep end and check out our original data collection app, iAngler, with it's accompanying website, www.angleraction.org. Join us as we strive to be a part of the solution. Good luck in the "Freshwater Weekend - Round 2"!
