George Moore Memorial Fishing Trophy

  • This is a preferred catch and release tournament, so proper release of the fish is encouraged.   Please measure the fish from the tip of the lower jaw to the center "V" of the caudal fin. (See below)  Bring a camera - photos are encouraged, but this is a tournament based on the honor system.
