Tournaments are judged by photos submitted by anglers competing in the tournament. All tournaments are judged based on the length of the fish in the photo. If your total length of fish caught is longer than all other anglers, then you win the tournament. The tournament director will contact you to claim your prize for winning if there has been a prize designated for the tournament.
Can I add a catch to multiple tournaments?
