    Rules:
    • This contest is open to all registered SalmonTime members. If you are not already a ST member, why not!? Please join our site. We don't bite, just like the salmon! ;)

    • You do not need to pre-enter. Your entrance is when you post a pic of a fish with the required info. If you are not a SalmonTime member, register as a member and then post your catch and you will be officially entered into the contest.

    • You must be the one who caught the Salmon!

    • The salmon must be placed flat next to a tape measure, measuring stick, etc. Homemade measuring devices do not count. The length of the fish must be easily determinable by the photo and I will assign each fish an “official” length. If the picture is blurry or the measuring instrument not easily readable, the submission will not be given an official length and will be void.

    • In the fish picture, along with the measuring device, there must be a card/piece of paper or other material, that states “SalmonTime", your "User Name" and the "Date" for the entry to be counted. Any photo not containing any pieces of this information will be automatically disqualified, NO EXCEPTIONS!

    • This is a long contest. At the end date, all submissions must be posted on this website, in this thread. Any submission posted after this time will not count. Any submission posted anywhere but in this thread, will not count.

    • Multiple entries per member are allowed. All entries must be made by a registered member and they must be the one who landed the fish being entered. The entries can be submitted at any time during the event.

    • If there is a tie, the fish that was posted first (either longest or shortest) on the website will be the winner.

    • At any time, for any reason, www.salmontime.com reserves the right to change/add/delete any rule, submission, entry, or prize for any/no reason at all. Anyone found to be cheating will be automatically disqualified.

    • At the end date of the contest, the winning members will be declared. Please follow along as I will keep an updated Leaderboard available.

    I’d like to give a special acknowledgement to pafisherman.com as his rules for existing contests are bullet proof and I’ve snagged his format.

    Wow, that was fast!

    But only the river? What about all the other tribs to Lake Ontario? And how do you check if the fish is on the ground?

    Other Ontario Tribs are acceptable. I just want the entries to be non-lake entries as there are contests for the lake at other places. As for how do I check if the fish is on the ground? Do you mean was it caught in a non-lake?

    Rocks in P-town are similar to rocks on N Sands, etc, OZ would likely be on concrete so it could look like a pier. SR is likely to be first, but biggest and smallest could come from elsewhere. Also, does the fish have to be legal (wink, wink), at least for smallest, would be 15" minimum?

    Minor details, great idea though!!

    Sub-legal is ok. Of course the fish should be released unharmed.

    If a salmon wants to jump up on the rocks, and wait for me to pick it up, so be it. Still got some of the skein!

    Yeah, I think so as well. I may hit DSR last weekend in August if the rain and temps stay where they are.

    Cheater! Dsr should not count TS.

    Have sympathy on the poor blue colar workers that cannot afford dsr.

    Too easy down there sitting down there in the lower dsr shallows...a guy will hit one down there aug 15th!
