Big Fish Contest!

2022 Big Fish Contest Status & Entries Here!

WHAT IS THE BIG FISH CONTEST ABOUT?

Everyone loves competition. Everyone loves to show off a PB (personal best) record fish. It's what makes fishing the endless adventure we live for. BASC champions this contest and recognizes this to be the most enjoyable challenge for any passionate fisherman. Anyone can catch a lifetime fish and we want to share your special experience with others and reward you for it too!

 

We track all of the biggest fish (by length) that are caught by our members. If you catch one of the biggest fish for any species (other than bait fish varietals), your name will be placed as a leader in the Master List below until another member can prove they caught a bigger one. You can be leader for any number of species fresh or salt water.

 

This event is over the whole year, so you have 12 months to get on the board. When the year ends, all leader board holders will be entered into a raffle for a chance at winning $100, or $50, or $25 at the BASC end of the year holiday party. For each variety/species that member has one entry into the raffle.

 

RULES TO FOLLOW

 

  • Adhere to all the fishing regulations as specified in Fish and Game regulations that can be found at Fishing in California. All fish entered must be of legal size or they do not qualify in our contest.

  • Fish should be measured from the tip of its nose to the middle of the tail down the lateral line of the fish.

  • Length tiebreakers will be determined by the fish weight, so make sure to weigh it or you risk losing the lead.

  • TWO pictures REQUIRED. One of you holding the fish and the second with the measurement of it. The measurement must be clear and easy to see or it will not count.

STEP 1)  Fill out the form below (date, location, person, length, weight) and submit it. Entry MUST be completed by

                    the active member who caught the fish and must be registered on the site to access the forum for posting.

STEP 2)  POST your TWO pictures as described above into the FORUM "Big Fish Contest" OR "Fishing Reports"and

                    email us that you have submitted the entry and posted the pictures.

STEP 3)  Report catch within one week. Same or next day is preferred. THIS IS REQUIRED and late entries will not

                    be accepted to be fair to all who have followed the set rules.

STEP 4)  Please also go to the FORUM and under "Share A Fishing Story" share a brief (or detailed) story about your

                    big fish catch. Step 4 is not a requirement, but a request so that we can all appreciate your special catch.
