How does your point system work?

For one-day tournaments (200 points at 1 point increments) For example: 1st Place 200-points, 2nd Place 199-points and so on. For two-day tournaments (400 points at 2 point increments) For example: 1st Place 400-points, 2nd Place 398-points and so on. With a full field, (20 anglers or more) you will receive maximum points.

You may fish as many one-day and two-day tournaments you wish, but only your BEST 4 one-day tournaments + your BEST two-day tournament count toward national standings. This allows the angler to put a bad tournament behind them.

A PERFECT score is 1200 points: 4 one-day tournaments at 200 points each = 800 points, plus 1 two-day tournament at 400 points = 1200 points.

Here is an example of how the points would work for a Sample Angler. The key is a level playing field. If one angler can fish 20 tournaments he/she does not gain an advantage over someone that can only fish 6.

Contestants must have fished at least four (4) one day tournaments
to be eligible to compete in any 2-day district tournament.
