* To video a scoreable fish, either one of the anglers can video each other. You also have the option of bringing an extra person on the boat to video. 

* You are only allowed to have a max. of 2 redfish on the boat at the same time.

* In the event a stringer weight tie, the largest fish of the stringer will be the tie breaker for the win. Next largest fish would break the a tie if the largest fish were the same.

 How to video your catch:

2. Go to CREATE A POST then click on LIVE VIDEO button below.

3. Click on START LIVE VIDEO when either fighting the fish in the water or when the fish has been landed on the boat.

4. You will see a red box on the top left corner that says "Live", and you are now recording.

5. Clearly say your names or team number  (ex. "Smith & Jones" or "Team #18")

6. Clearly tell us the time.  (ex. "It is 10:05am.")

7. Clearly tell us what # fish this is that is being reported.  (ex. "This is fish #3" if you had already filmed #1&2)

8. Power up the scale and video that the scale is at ZERO.

(We will have multiple videos and trainings to go over all steps for FB Live prior to the event.)

In the event that you are out of cell phone service area, we will post a CODE WORD at the beginning of the event that you can use and post a recorded video of your catch that you were unable to post.  This ensures that all catches happen the day of the event. You must get in cell phone range and post all recorded videos before 2pm sharp.  This means leave the area you are fishing and get close to the dock to post.  Any videos posted after 2pm will not be scorable fish.

 

*Your videos will be retrieved & we will add to your online total score as quickly as we can. 

*Any of the these steps that are not clearly shown on video may result in a fish being non-scorable.
