STEPS FOR BEING A JUDGE AT OUR INSHORE TOURNAMENTS:
This also can be done without touching the fish (have angler(s) measure and put on scale)! :-)
1. anglers are responsible to bring the bass to the closest judge. 2. We will space ourselves around lake or pond. This depends on where the anglers fish. 3. TWHS BFT uses rapala digital scales for the tournament (see below). Place digital scale hook behind gill cover to weigh fish (see attachment). 4. Document fish weight using inshore bag sheet (click HERE for example).
