Trout caught on a flatfish F6 today at Shaver Lake. 16.75 inches x 8 points per inch = 134 points.
Unfortunately I cut off the number 17 in the full length picture and didn't realize that until after I filleted the fish. Therefore I am including pictures of the measuring device to show that the first line starts at 2" and then every solid line after that is 1/4". Really sorry for missing the measure on the full length shot. It was there when I composed it so not sure why it's not in the final shot.

Caught this 13" spotted bass yesterday at Bass Lake, trolling a wedding ring behind a dodger!

13 " x 10 points per inch = 130 points.

Rockfish DQ not sufficient photos. AOTY Ruling


2. Photographs with a digital camera providing evidence of the fish size with total length(except Sturgeon and yellowtail and barracuda is Fork length as per DFG rules) of fish taken in the center of the fish in the first picture and then a close up of the tail section must be provided at a minimum. The fish should not be stretched, bent, or manipulated in any way to enhance the fish length. The fish should also be in as natural lay position, mouth must be closed and against the 0 or other even number, and whole fish visible in at least one of the photos. Measurements will be rounded down in 1/4" increments. If there is no picture provided with the whole fish against a measuring devise then the fish will be disqualified. 
We don't want to disqualify fish because the mouth is slightly open, but want the whole event to be fair so if you are unable to get the fish to keep it's mouth completely shut then there will be a 1/2 inch deduction if on the water. Which adds up quick. So get that mouth on your fish shut. If your taking pictures on shore  the fish mouth MUST be completely closed with no gap visible. That being said fish with a wide open mouth will still be disqualified. Decisions up to AOTY committee.

I thought everything that needed to be seen could be seen from the one photo so didn't post the detail shots. They are there now. Does that solve it?
