Welcome to the FTFF Jackpot Monthly Event which is a 1-day progressive Jackpot event running the 3rd weekend of each month. We will alternate Saturdays and Sundays each month. There is a $7 cash buy-in with $5 to the Jackpot and $2 to the forum. We are fishing Bass both Freshwater (LargeMounth) and Saltwater (Spotted Bay Bass).

Important info we will be competing Saltwater vs Freshwater together. In the event we reach a minimum of 5 in each group we will break it into two competitions. If we don't meet 5 on both sides then it will be Freshwater vs Saltwater.

The person with the most in length of 3 measured fish max wins. Important to know, if your fish is 15 3/4" it will only count for a measurement of 15" (must reach the full inch to count as that full inch.) It is best to use a Bump Board as your measurements can be read easier than using the float tube apron. In the event of a tie, the judges will re-look at all photos and count to the BEST of their ability the ¼”, ½”, and ¾” inch measurement to break the tie (This is where the Bump Board will make the difference).

This is a float tube event so you must be fishing from a float tube and must have proof in your pictures of this. The night before we will send a code that must be in each picture you post. It must be on your hand or on a card that is clearly visible in the picture no photoshopping is allowed. There will be an official thread that will be your location to post your pictures for the FTFF Jackpot Event. This will be the day of the event from 6 am to 11 pm. All pictures must be in before midnight on the same day of the event to count. Please remember this is a fun way to compete let’s keep it fun and enjoyable, encourage each other and good luck to all.

A one day event would be nice.
But, say the biggest 2 fish are 15 not 16. 15 and 3/4 is bigger than 15 and 1/4 for the deciding factor, or is it a tie?

I like this idea.  When we get to a tie it goes to true over all length.  So it faults to full inch and when a tie happens we look closer to 1/4 and half inch for winner.

So we are looking at 1 day Jackpot event each month possible the 3rd weekend of each month.  $7 cash buy-in with $5 to the Jackpot and $2 to the forum.  We are fishing Bass both Freshwater and Saltwater with 5 being the magic number to make it a Saltwater only and freshwater event.  If we don't meet 5 on one side that group will compete in the overall event.   The person with the most in length with 3 fish max wins.  If your fish is 15 3/4" it measures as 15" (must reach the full each to count as a full inch.)  In the event of a tie, the judges will relook at all photos and count to the BEST of the Picture the 1/4, 1/2, and 3/4 inch measurement to break the tie.

One of our issues in the past was the following the same person winning event after event so I propose winners cannot compete the following month or at least are not allowed to win the following month.  Anything else you think we should do here.

Is there is certain time that this would go on? I have to work saturdays and can't get out until after 6pm. If I can fish at night I would try this out.
