1st picture: LM Measure Board
Only fish that have been caught with a measure board authorized by LM will be scored.
Day code (3 numbers between 1-30) must be marked on the measure board with the help of the brackets provided. If the day code is missing, the catch will be rejected. The day code is available on luremasters.net on every calendar day from midnight, it is only valid on this calendar day. The code is the same for every tournament running on this day. If brackets are lost, the day code can show on a slip of paper or on the back of the hand. In these exceptional cases, catching is accepted until new brackets organized. The use of the LM measure board is absolutely necessary, images with other measure boards must be rejected. The correct day code must definitely always be visible on the measure board picture, if not, the catch doesn’t count.
All centimeters at the upper edge of the measure board must be consistently visible on the picture in order to make folding the board impossible.
The fish must always be photographed with the left side, see the fish sketch at the stop on the measure board. Pictures from the right side will be rejected.
The fish must touch the stop at the zero point of the board with its mouth. If this contact with the stop is not recognizable, the catch will be rejected. The picture must clearly show that the fish is touching the stop, for this it is imperative to photograph the fish straight from above, pictures with a distorting angle are rejected.
Fish must lie on a flat surface on the measure board.
Before taking a picture, please wet the measure board in order to protect the fish.
The field that touches the outermost tip of the tail is the specified length in full cm. If the tip of the tail is exactly on the line between two fields, the higher value counts.
If the full length of the fish can’t be seen in the picture with the measure board, it will be rejected and not scored.
