  5. Photos - Add two separate verification photos for each catch.
    1. Weight Verification - Photo must show display of scale and LCD screen with hold weight and full length of catch in frame.  Catch does not have to be on scale at time of photo but scale and catch must both be in frame. 
    2. Length Verification - Photo must show catch on Measuring device.   The fish needs to be measured from left to right. Starting from the mouth on the left and ending with the tail on the right.  The mouth of the catch must be completely closed.  The Length Photo must include the Tournament Identifier Card with the Tournament Code JAN19 clearly visible. 
  6. Private Catch - Make sure the Private catch slider is turned off and not showing Green.   If the catch is kept Private we will not see it in Public Feed or in database query when we are verifying results.   You may keep Share Map (GPS) Location private so that no other users will know your location.  The Private catch setting is used for determining if catch is displayed on Public Feed and eligible for Public Tournaments/Challenges.  If you keep your location private, only the Tournament Admin will be able to see your location.  This is required to verify that the catch was weighed on body of water.
