A ConnectScale Bluetooth Digital Scale to measure weight.
A measuring device to measure length. Ruler, Tape measure, Bump Board, etc….
Step 3-IDENTIFIER CARD: NAME & CODE- Write down your First and Last name plus the Tournament Code on the Identifier Card.   You can download and print the Identifier Card HERE ->

The Tournament Code to write on the card will be distributed the night before each session begins.

Step 5 -WEIGH & LOG- Weigh the catch on your scale and enter the details of each catch on the ConnectScale iOS Fishing App. Required fields to complete are: 

Weight - Obtained automatically from ConnectScale Bluetooth Fishing Scale.  Automatic weights are indicated on the Catch Feed with a Green Font. If for some reason the scale doesn’t transfer the weight or you have issues you may enter manual weight, weights should be entered in Pounds to the nearest 100th and match the display of the scale.  
Length - Manually input the length of each catch in the Length Field. 
Species - Select appropriate species of catch. (Largemouth Bass, Smallmouth Bass, Spotted Bass) 
Public Tournament Code - Make sure you have a green check next to this event.  This field will automatically be populated once you save the catch and have it public and a photo added.  

Photos - Add verification photos for each catch.  You can add multiple photos if needed, your catch must meet both Weight and Length verification requirements.   

Weight Verification - Photo must show display of scale’s LCD screen with weight and catch in frame. The catch does not have to be on the scale at the time of photo but scale and catch must both be in the frame. 

Length Verification - Photo must show catch on the Measuring device.   The fish needs to be measured from left to right. Starting from the mouth on the left and ending with the tail on the right.  The mouth of the catch must be completely closed. The Length Photo must include the Tournament Identifier Card with the Tournament Code for that session clearly visible. 

Here is a great example of how to submit the two photos.  

Weight Verification:

Length Verification:

Private Catch Disabled - Make sure the Private catch slider is turned off and not showing Green.   If the catch is kept Private we will not see it in Public Feed or in the database when we are verifying results.   You may keep Share Map (GPS) Location private so that no other users will not know your location. The Private catch setting is used for determining if a catch is displayed on Public Feed and eligible for Public Tournaments/Challenges.  If you keep your location private, only the Tournament Admin will be able to see your location. This is required to verify that the catch was weighed on a body of water. 

Save - After you have completed ALL of the steps above tap Save in top right-hand corner to save the catch submission and enter the catch in the competition. 

Step 6 -REPEAT -Complete steps 4 and 5 as many times as you can during the time frame of this challenge.  This system will calculate the Total Weight based on all of your catches.
