#1 The ANCHORED BOAT RULE needs to take into consideration the use
of POWER POLES & TALONS as well as thee SPOT LOCK feature available
on the newer trolling motors.

#2 From recent reports of TD's DQing fish for not being LEGAL SIZE that
TP&W subsequently said were legal, a process is needed to allow
contestants to CHALLENGE the ruling of the TD at the TIME OF THE RULING.

What would you suggest for wording to correct these items.

#1: I would assume that the anchored boat rule already covered the power poles and talons. They are called shallow water anchors after all. But, agreed, if they are somehow not covered by the rules, then they should be. The spot lock will be hard to do. How am I supposed to know you have a motor with spot lock, much less know that it is deployed? Take your word for it? That one should probably be left out.

#2: Who is going to be the authority on the challenge if a game warden is not around?

#2: The tournament director is passing out the prize money. That means he "IS" the final say so on whatever rule or judgment is applied.

I agree that the Tournament director has the final say.
However if you feel an error was made In Measuring a fish
there still needs a process for a contestant to appeal that measurement
BEFORE a final decision is made.
If a Game Warden is present he would be the ideal arbiter.
If not then the contestant should be shown why the fish does not
meet the standard.
