OA One bass tournament (Virtual version)

Recommended Posts

We have a problem, Phil and Duane made an OA plaque for the 2020 tournament.  We had to cancel that tourney due to the virus, but we still have a 2020 dated plaque.  

We need to award it to someone.

So here is my idea (I also ran it be Phil).  We have a virtual tourney where you take photo of your bass on a ruler and in short, the longest bass wins.  Has to be a black bass, smallmouth, largemouth, spotted bass or a hybrid of these species.

I'll open up a thread in this forum where you can submit photos.  Make sure you get the full-length of the bass on a ruler.  Make sure it's a good photo so the length on the ruler is readable in the photo.

Starts Friday at 5 PM Central Time, May 22 and runs until 8 AM Central, May 26th which is a Tuesday.  These dates being Memorial Day weekend.  Photos must be submitted in that time frame in the thread I will open in the Fishing Events Forum.

By accepting to participate you agree to be upstanding and honorable in your submission of the picture.

Fish must be caught in public waters

On photos submitted you must specify body of water, so we can verify that it is a public water.  If it is something that you need to keep secret, then we'll accept a PM the judges attesting that it was caught in a waterway open to the public.

Gradiations on the ruler must be visible in the photo, and the ruler must cover the entire length of the fish.  Also state the length of the fish along with the photo.

We will start a thread in this forum before 5 PM on Friday the 22nd.  In that thread we will specify a number, that number must be included (written on a piece of paper) in the photo of your fish.  Also we will start of thread for submission of photos.

Artificial lures only.

Fish must be live when photographed.

Participation is limited to OA members or their spouses and children.

Should we have a tie, we'll have a 3 person panel make the call.  I don't have anyone on the panel yet, so if you want to volunteer, shoot me a PM.  Now that I think of it, we'll have the panel determine the winner.

I'll post this in a couple of the popular lake forums too.

Here's the plaque, along with the last winner - it's a nice plaque.

Sounds like fun. I'll play.

My bump boards only go to 18".  Who sells a good board that goes to at least 24" ?  Preferably one that's marked in 1/4".   I'll get one ordered.

If you want to ensure the catch was made during the intended time period just announce a "number" Friday evening, and that number has to be included in the fish pic.

     Change number each evening throughout the tourney.

A good idea on the number deal, I'm leaning towards this being an honor system deal so I have been reluctant to add too many rules.

I don't have one of these boards myself so can't vouch for them as far as durability, but it is one I found doing a search.  Plenty of positive reviews.
