It's up to the tournament directors, but in addition to the issues with identifying a spotted bass, there is also misconception regarding the slot limit . I tried to explain to Bob Sealy once that a 18 inch spotted bass was a legal fish. Misconception is that the slot applies to black basses instead of only to large mouth bass.
