    1. Example: You can enter multiple fish, on different days, of the same species, but only the longest one of all your entries will count for points.  
   2. Points awarded to the three longest fish of each species in each division Enter as many species  as you can!

    3. In each division, the longest fish of each species is assigned 3 points, the next largest  2 points  and the third 1 point. 

    4. In each division, the angler with the MOST points from all species earns first place, the angler with the second highest points earns second place and the angler with the third highest points earns third place.

Species LENGTH Tiebreaker: In the event there is a tie, then the anglers both receive the same  points for their fish. 

Example:  If two anglers tie for first with 30- inch redfish, they each get three points.  The next place finishers DO  NOT move down in position, so in this example, there are second and third place points

5. Divisional POINTS Tiebreaker:

After all fish are entered in and scored if there is a tie in the total number of points for the division and in order to determine a divisional   winner for the $$$, “ the angler that has entered in the longest fish of any species shall be declared the winner of that division and the next place finishers will each move down a position
