- Spotted Trout
The intent of this tournament is to catch, photograph and release fish caught during official tournament hours. NCLA supports marine life conservation efforts and hopes that you will release all captured fish and other marine life. If you keep all or a portion of your catch you will not be disqualified from the tournament but please understand it is your responsibility to abide by all current State of Florida fishing rules and regulations including but not limited to species, size, slot, limits, etc. NCLA assumes no responsibility for your failure to do so. One of the advantages of a photo tournament is that you can win with fish outside any slot limits for their species which you could not legally land for a physical weigh-in.
Participation is open to all NCLA members and/or Lady Anglers. Participants must have a current Florida Fishing License as required by state law.
FLAG boundaries are the territorial waters of the Gulf of Mexico, the Atlantic Ocean, and Florida Bay for the State of Florida and U.S. federal waters, from the boundary waters of the Florida/Alabama border extending seaward, eastward and then southward along the Florida gulf coast, to the waters of the Florida Keys, and then northward to the common boundary waters of the Florida/Georgia border extending seaward in the South Atlantic. All of the waters of Everglades National Park, as defined by the National Park Service, are included in the tournament boundaries, as are all west and east coast bodies of water, including bays, harbors and tributaries. Fish taken outside of tournament boundaries, from private impoundments or other waters not legally accessible to the general public, will not be eligible for entry. Anglers are prohibited from fishing in Bahamian, Cuban, or other non- U.S. waters.

2020 NCLA FLAG TOURNAMENT RULES AND REGULATIONS
- All Fish Like A Girl (“FLAG”) entrants participate at their own risk. All Lady Anglers, who are registered for the 2020 Fish Like A Girl Tournament, are eligible to participate. All participants must pay a FLAG registration fee of $50.
- The entire responsibility for correctness of any official entry form rests solely on the entrant. The FLAG Committee reserves the right to change dates and times of the tournament. All decisions of the FLAG Committee are final and not subject to challenge.
- Participants must comply with State of Florida Rules and Regulations and Florida Fish and Wild-life Conservation Commission (FWC) saltwater fishing regulations. All FWC rules and regulations governing the recreational harvest of fish must be followed unless otherwise modified in these rules. If a FLAG registrant is required to be a recreational saltwater license holder, their license must be current to be eligible for any FLAG tournament prizes, and their license must be effective no later than the time of entry into the tournament. All participants agree to be bound by the terms of these FLAG Rules, and the Release and Indemnity Agreement.
TOURNAMENT DATES AND TIMES:
- The Tournament will begin at sunrise on Thursday, October 1, 2020, and end at sunset on Tuesday, December 1, 2020.
- Fish entered into competition for prizes must have been caught and landed by the registered participant. All fish entered into competition for prizes must have been hooked and caught by the contestant on rod, reel, hook, and line. Fish caught on artificial, live baits, or dead natural baits are eligible. When fishing from a boat, trolling, drifting, and anchoring are permitted. Fishing is also permitted from docks, piers, seawalls, tributaries, shorelines, and bridges, as is wade fishing. While trolling, drifting or still fishing, a rod secured in a rod holder may hook a fish; however, the angler who initially touches the rod from the rod holder must thereafter continuously fight and land the fish without assistance from any other person. Assistance from any other person is limited to netting the fish caught by the participating angler.
- FLAG boundaries are the territorial waters of the Gulf of Mexico, the Atlantic Ocean, and Florida Bay for the State of Florida and U.S. federal waters, from the boundary waters of the Florida/Alabama border extending seaward, eastward and then southward along the Florida gulf coast, to the waters of the Florida Keys, and then northward to the common boundary waters of the Florida/Georgia border extending seaward in the South Atlantic. All of the waters of Everglades National Park, as defined by the National Park Service, are included in the tournament boundaries, as are all west and east coast bodies of water, including bays, harbors and tributaries. Fish taken outside of tournament boundaries, from private impoundments or other waters not legally accessible to the general public, will not be eligible for entry. Anglers are prohibited from fishing in Bahamian, Cuban, or other non- U.S. waters.

Electronic submission of all tournament entries must also include the tournament division, species, length, time, date, name of angler. Each entry can be submitted in only one tournament division.

All fish entered shall be photographed and entered only once and only one fish per participant, per division, per species, per day may be entered in the tournament, except for in the Conservation Division. Winning entries must be verified by a member of the FLAG tournament committee. Participants may be required to provide additional information by the FLAG committee (including, but not limited to, additional images from the same camera that was used for tournament photos). The Nature Coast Lady Angler’s and/or the FLAG Tournament committee reserve the right to reject any entry. Any intentional falsification of information provided by the registered participant will lead to immediate disqualification of the entry, and the angler will be disqualified for the remainder of the 2020 tournament. Failure to comply with these rules will result in the forfeiture of any and all prizes. All committee decisions will be final.
All winning fish for all tournament prizes shall be determined by a drawing. The drawings in each division will be made from all verified entries made during the FLAG tournament. All tournament participants must use the Nature Coast Lady Angler’s official 2020 FLAG Token when submitting any entry.
