The Logo


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!

Hard for one person to take a photo while holding a big fish.  I'll see if my fishing camera has a timer.  Can put it on a tripod and run like #$%& to get in the picture.  Need to experiment or take SWMBO carping.  She got her permanent senior license recently.  She can go fishing with me or stay home and clean house. ;)

If you could make sure to print a couple of Big4 logos and bring them to you-know-where, this would be great... I will not have access to a printer by then.

Just came here to ask the same thing! Might be excited for a grass carp division. I know a place.;)

I don't think Kansas has what it takes to hang with those beast commons from CA, MI or The Northeast.

There has been a mistake in the rules  with the buffalo and grass carp. They were eliminated in the previous Big 4's because there were never any submissions. When Bob posted the rules he used an old post to copy and paste. There won't be a place to log them.  Sorry...... I will delete the info about the grass and buffalo carp. Only Common and Mirror Carp will be counted...
