MOYAK HAS ADOPTED THE KBF RULES STANDARD, ALTHOUGH ANY RULES LISTED ON THIS PAGE, OR GIVEN AT THE CAPTAINS MEETING BY THE TOURNAMENT DIRECTOR OVERRIDE ANY KBF RULE. SPECIFIC RULES, AND OR CHANGES, WILL BE EXPLAINED BY THE TOURNAMENT DIRECTOR AT THE CAPTAINS MEETING PRIOR TO THE TOURNAMENT. FOR A COMPLETE LISTING OF ALL TOURNAMENT RULES FOLLOW THE LINK BELOW
- Print off a couple spare identifiers. Better too many than one too few.
- Take multiple photos of each fish with your camera, an ID visible in each one, then upload to TourneyX from your camera roll. That leaves you with backups and alternate images in case the first one you submitted gets dinged.
- Identify the closest place with wi-fi or a good data signal and bear in mind how many minutes you are from it.
- Put the TD’s cell phone number in your contacts. His name and phone number are on the TourneyX Event page. Text, call, PM, or email him to alert him to technological problems that may be systemic. Also, you can transmit photos to him for manual uploads if necessary.
- Test your TourneyX dashboard login and photo submission functions minutes after the competition start time. Take a photo of your ID and Hawg Trough to make sure your camera is working and that you can upload. Might be a good time to test the “cull” feature, too.
- Carry backups. Cell phones rarely float. A second digital camera in a waterproof bag adds little weight and takes up little space in your gear crate.
- Speaking of floating, add flotation to your KBF-approved measuring board.
- Carry a Sharpie to darken the Hawg Trough lines or mark the fence base and print the ID code on your identifier form. (You’ll find it useful for turning a spinnerbait, soft plastic, or crankbait into a nighttime lure or adding camo to a frog.)
- Have a USB cord or spare removable media and batteries for a digital camera.
- Under the “it goes without saying,” make sure to top off your cell phone charge as you drive to the lake, and turn off all unused apps that slurp up power and shorten a battery charge.
- A pre-flight checklist is not a bad idea
