rules question

I read the rules and I think I understand how the team competition goes, but I can't find rules on what are the qualifications of how to win if you are not on a team, there is a year long tourney other than the classic right?
is that the cow hunt? how many fish qualify for that? one? 10? I'm confused.
Do the weekend fish tally only count towards the year long, something is not clear to me as this gets all mixed up

I didn't put my thinking cap on today

also some questions after talking to my tourney partner and others involved

1. should each member enter as many fish as possible or at least there top 5 so it helps their indivual overall score or do only the top 5 between the two members count for the year long tally?

2. what if i'm in area with no internet/computer access, and i cant upload within 24 hours? Like on cutty or block. I use a waterproof camera which requires me to download the pics before sending them. Can i send them in on sunday when I return???

3. how does the season long cow hunt work? do i use the week befores tourney card for the pic? say the following tuesday i stick a super cow or really long fish does that count or does it have to be caught during thursday to sunday?

4. still doing bonus points for videos?

5. should i enter every fish i catch?

thats all i can remember now, 6 hours of sleep in the last 2 nights, coupled with a 14 work day and two all day fishing seasons and real life stuff to do , i cant remember the rest right now.

Only the top 5 between you. It makes sense to enter a few extras in case there is a tie. Also, it makes sense to enter anything that might increase your individual Cow Hunt Score (your three biggest) for the season.

2. what if i'm in area with no internet/computer access, and i cant upload within 24 hours? Like on cutty or block. I use a waterproof camera which requires me to download the pics before sending them. Can i send them in on sunday when I return???

I'll post something about this on Facebook and the site, it's a good point. The short answer is, you're screwed.

If you let me know before you head out to your exotic locale, I'll make the note and of course, I'll be glad to give you some leeway.


3. how does the season long cow hunt work? do i use the week befores tourney card for the pic? say the following tuesday i stick a super cow or really long fish does that count or does it have to be caught during thursday to sunday?

Use the TAG from the previous weekend.

4. still doing bonus points for videos?

Yes

5. should i enter every fish i catch?

No, enter the ones that will increase your score and like I said above, it's wise to have two extras for tiebreakers, if possible.

thats all i can remember now, 6 hours of sleep in the last 2 nights, coupled with a 14 work day and two all day fishing seasons and real life stuff to do , i cant remember the rest right now.
Hope that helps

Does the video have to be of a fish you or your partner caught? Or can it be a fish another Buddy caught while fishing with you?

Ian, the video of another buddy catching a fish is worth some bonus points as well

Here's how it breaks down.

Each video of a fish that qualifies for your top five is worth 2 points and if all of your qualifying catches are recorded on video you'll earn an additional 3 points.

If you submit video of anything else fishing-related; your non-team-member buddy hooking a fish, birds working, pranking your sleeping fishing partner, fosh blitzing etc etc... it will earn you an additional 2 points. The one thing to understand about these extra videos is that you can only earn 2 points once per weekend, so whether you send me a 3 hour montage (please don't ) or a 30 second clip of birds diving on bait, it's all worth the same 2 points.

No worries Greg. Will you be in a place where you can text me your scores every day? I'm assuming you'll be at Cutty, if that's the case, I can usually text from anywhere around the club, but when service is especially shoddy I go up near the big weather vane on the hill and things will usually work out.

All I want is...
"Dave it's Greg from The Castaways, 4 fish last night: 23, 34, 45, 52 for a total of 154"

Just so I can update things and keep everything flowing as the weekend progresses.
I'll PM you my number

Dave, can you send me the same text for use next weekend? A number of us will be on the island then and will need to do something similar

There you go, I fixed it for you.
