Some times its not possible alive fish open there mouth an dead rigamortiss fish do to after being drug on a stringer lol

this is true at time. but with the dead fish you just have to be a little more forceful.

So if how will DFG measure the fish . I thought is was bu the longest length. But so if I get this right, all we have to do is make sure the mouth is shut. After putting foot on tail and stretching the fish as much as possible. then we measure the fish. DO I have that right?  :P :P

maybe not two inches but it does increase length

Not too sure about this, Ive done the test my self multiple times and have noticed the same thing and always to be the case when if tried them both ways. So if you want the most points close those mouths...  :) :) :)

Here is some examples first two are open mouthed.





The these two are of Closed mouthed. Id say you are gonna loose length if you open the mouth.

I thinl it depends on the type of fish.

With a Crappie I am sure it makes a difference but not a Halibut, Bass, Rock fish or Ling. Either way, I like these things because I get to see pictures of fish.  :D

with rockfish and other fish of the seam i noticed that if the mouth is slightly open there is an advantage. i have not tried the mouth all the way open like you demonstrated with that bass.

Try your best to get an accurate pic w/mouth closed. But sometimes it isn't possible. And in most cases, it wouldn't have a significant impact on overall length anyways.

How much is the buy-in? And how much extra would it be with the CCKF Hawg Troughs?
I'm gonna signup regardless, but it w/b cool to have a CCKF trough.

Also, have you considered providing some sort of "swag bag" for people who signup? I'd personally contribute an Andy1976 leadhead and a BH swimbait to each bag.

Lol thatd be sweet but not economical due to shipping charges. Swag bags are more of a tourny thing for that reason. Maybe if our sponsors want to at our award ceremony fish an chill

Oh yeah, I'm not saying ship them. You gotta pick it up @ the awards ceremony/fish n chill or make arrangements for a buddy to pick it up.
Still down to prsonally contribute something toward a swag bag. We've had em for the last 7yrs of AOTY on the other site, but it's all donatd by sponsors.

Hey Ryan wtf?! I just looked at those pics again and noticed something = you got a Hobie?
