View Full Version : Measuring fish photo examples
06-02-2010, 01:02 PM
I made an article on the site to help those see what a good and bad photo is. Hope this helps some.
Most of the photos used in this article were a "bad" photo of several taken of the fish so it is wise to always take more than one in case you make a mistake. However, some were the only photo we had and the fish were not allowed to count.

May I ask why:
"They must face left!"
Just curious. I'll turn em any way you want.

Its also in the rules when you read them over but the only way to prevent someone from cheating with the same fish is to have them only be able to lay on the board one direction. If someone tries to scrore two 18 inch fish we of course look at the photo and EVERY fish has distinct marks on it and we can then tell they are cheating. So, this prevents someone from trying to cheat in that manner by flipping the fish over and claiming it is a separate fish.

That's cool,, was jsut wondering, as I do. (too much sometimes:rolleyes:)
I also read/saw in the rules that the nose has to be touching the board.
In all of them picutres, NONE of the nose's are touching. The bottom jaw is. (+1/4" or so)
Isn't the mouth supposed to be closed?
Once again,, just askin,,,,,

Well, by nose we just mean the front of the fish. I guess technically it should state lower jaw. The mouth can be open or closed really. We're about to change that rule because it is really been too hard to keep a fish's mouth closed and it really doesn't do that much either way to the length. The pinched tail is more of an issue than the mouth.
If I can tell a mouth isn't touching the end of the board I can asses a 1/2 inch penalty unless it is waaay off in which case the fish won't count at all.

In the second to last picture (upside down and facing the wrong direction), couldn't the picture just be flipped? Just sayin'. :)

lol, RH. I suppose it could but when we're in a hurry building a presentation we don't have time to rotate photos or do anything else. We want to get the show going as soon as possible for everyone.
