2. All entrants must possess valid fishing licenses for the waters they are fishing in. Any violation of these laws will disqualify your catch.

3. For your catch to be considered, you must measure and photograph your fish with the tournament team number ID card immediately after catching the fish. The angler may submit as many fish per species as desired but, at the end of the tournament, only the angler's largest fish in each species category will be counted. Qualifying fish are not required to be brought to a weigh station. All participants are responsible for getting their photos uploaded into the iAngler app within the allotted time.

4. In the event of a tie in any segment of the tournament, the trophy will go to the fish with the earliest logged in the earliest into the IAnglertournament app.

5. The tournament is designed as catch-and-release. Participants may certainly keep their fish pursuant to the laws or regulations of the State of Texas or federal regulation. It is at the discretion of each team or individual whether to keep or release their fish. If a team, however, decides to keep a fish, the fish will be counted by the inches measured at the time of photograph immediately following the catch. Fish that are apparently dead in the photograph will not be counted. No fish will be measured or weighed at the dock.

The Day of The Tournament Breakfast tacos will be available at Waterman’s Marina in the morning from 5:30am to 6:30am and lunch will be served starting at 12 noon. The Awards Ceremony will be at 2pm.

During the tournament, the team captain will be responsible for entering in the app all fish caught for the each team member. (However, it would be best for everyone to familiarize themselves with the application and how you submit a fish.)

Each non-guided team is responsible for providing its own boat, fuel, fishing tackle & bait for Friday. If using a guide on any boat, please make sure the guides know they are not allowed to fish during the tournament hours or assist team members in reeling in their fish.
