Event Specific Rules

*This is a 5 total fish tournament.



*All can take part in the Buckeye Online Event but in order to receive winnings, you must attend at least one in-person event. 


*Cut off for sign ups is 6pm on Friday, Sept 2nd. 


*Unique identifiers will be required in all picture submissions.


​Once the identifier is posted print it off and then put it into a ziploc bag or another clear bag (must be easily seen in pictures).


*Identifiers can easily get wet, blow away, or go missing so be sure to take extra precaution.  Nothing is worse than getting an awesome catch DQ'd because the identifier wasn't in the picture.
