How The Scoring will work

  • Each Team will be allowed 5 elligable channel catfish
  • Score will be based on combined inches of each teams top Channel Cats.
  • Every fish will be rounded up or down based on .5 under or .5 over the final inch. Using the photo if the catfish is 24.5 inches he would be rounded up to 25 inches, if the fish was 24.4 he would be rounded down to 24 inches. 
  • If a team had a 24,29,32,26 and a 21 in channel catfish their combined score would be 132
  • We prefer you use some sort of bump stick as seen on the left for accurate readings.
  • Take a photo holding your elible fish then another on the meassureing stick. We will post a weigh in secton in the group for these photos.
