Tournament Day & Identifier

Identifiers can be printed off HERE. The code for the identifier will be released by 9PM on Friday, August 21st on Facebook, Tourney X, and Twitter.  An identifier with no code, the wrong code, or codes in the wrong boxes will not be accepted.  If participating in multiple tournaments you can combine codes on a single identifier, but they must be correct and they must be in the correct boxes.

6:30AM - First cast; Anglers may begin fishing.  Any fish caught prior to this time will be DQ'd.

 

12:00-2:00PM - At some point during this time frame the Tourney X standings will disappear to add a little drama to the final standings.  Once they go dark you will still be able to submit fish.  If you want to verify your fish have been uploaded check the email address you signed up with for Tourney X.  DO NOT CALL OR MESSAGE US.  If you don't receive an email letting you know the fish was submitted then you need to keep trying.  The main reason a fish submission won't upload is because there is no cellular service where you are uploading.  Anglers need to be aware of that and head to a spot with service in enough time to upload. 

3:00PM - Fishing ends and no submissions will be accepted.  If you are unable to upload fish you are required to be back at the measure-in location BEFORE 2PM.  If you arrive after 2PM the fish will be disqualified.

 

4:00PM - All anglers are required to be at the measure-in located at
