FISH SUBMISSIONS
Please make sure you are registered on the New CAG Leader-board.

You only have to register ONCE, if you've already registered, let's say for the ATC, then all you need to do is Log in and add the Big 4 event to your name.

Instructions on how to use the leader-board can be downloaded here:

Leaderboard Instructions

Any questions, e-mail Willem @ BIG4@JOINCAG.COM

 

 

The Logo


The logo will be posted in a separate thread. You are required to submit 1 photo of each fish you catch along with it's weight. This photo MUST show the angler holding the fish, a printed 2017 Sprin Big 4 logo, and your scale.

Remember, the star of these photos is you with your fish. Your photo may end up in a magazine! The logo and scale just need to be there somewhere to prove you have them. They can be anywhere in the photo as long as they are identifiable. The best way to manage this is to tape the logo to your scale:

The Big 4 Logo is only 3.75 x 2.75." This is the size of many state/provincial fishing and hunting licenses. You can Also put your logo in a standard license holder from any tackle shop, and pin it on your clothes, or even your unhooking mat.

Just try not to put the logo in your mouth, that's not going to look good in a magazine!

The pdf link doesnt seem to work for me.  Last year I had a tough time getting on the board.  I paid today, anything else I need to do?

Hm, you're right. I asked Willem to fix the link. 

And to add to Dave's point, the leaderboard will be up and running for the Big4 on Sep 30th, the evening before the event starts. To make sure people don't log fish ahead of time! ;-)

What resolution should our photos be for upload to the leaderboard?  There were issues in the spring with pics being to large.  It's easier to set my camera to the required resolution than converting them on my computer.

Don't know the answer to your question, but if I were you, I would keep my camera in high-resolution... If you catch a monster or two, you'll be happy to have the pics in high-res for publication in the NACA, for your own archives, etc.

Right click on your high resolution photo & try emailing the photo to yourself. It should ask you what size image you want to send. (You don't even need to actually send just save the photo attachment that pops up in the body of the email.)

It doesn't work over a phone-use a laptop.......go to live leaderboard and click at the bottom-you need to go up to the toolbar when it comes up-click events, go to the CAG Big Four Fall 2017 event, click on that, and you should get a green "Apply to event"- apply and that should do it! :P..........Kirk

A small yet important tweak to the rules ... Since the leaderboard computes the Big-6 in addition to the Big-4, well, we'll have a special prize for the winner of the Big-6 total.

So guys, do log more than 4 fish in there and keep fishing!!
