Once the boat enters an area where the SCORETRACKER© Scoring System Device loses connectivity, the Boat Official will announce “We have lost SCORETRACKER© connectivity. You have 15 minutes before you must return to an area of connectivity.” Once the 15 consecutive minutes has elapsed, the Boat Official will announce “You have reached your 15 minutes of connectivity loss. You must stop fishing and return to an area of connectivity.” At this point the MLF Angler must immediately stop fishing and return the boat to an area of SCORETRACKER© connectivity. Failure to do so will result in a penalty. This includes making another cast after the Boat Official has announced the 15 minutes of lost connectivity has elapsed.
Any bass caught between the time after the Boat Official has announced the 15 minutes of lost connectivity has elapsed and before the SCORETRACKER© Scoring System Device has regained connectivity will be deemed un-scorable

That is an odd rule. I am not sure I would be thrilled with that one. However, if they knew the rule, they can't complain.

They must not enforce that rule. Mark Davis was out for half the day, on his day one. Didn't get connectivity until noon and then posted 28 lbs while driving back down south

Is the cell coverage that bad on Rayburn? I don't recall ever having problems getting a signal.

His biggest of 10 scored is 2-15... he’s probably caught twice or more of that many less than 2lb to get those 10 fish on scoreboard. That’s just a fact, not me being a clown. These guys represent themselves as being the best of the best... why shouldn’t they be expected to validate that claim? Fish in the 2lb range are barely legal in length (14” - 16” depending on jurisdiction) and are always schooled and in feeding frenzy. If he rigged things up right he probably could catch a few doubles while he’s casting into the pod of dinks. I suspect that would make some observers scream in delight!

He set the hook and missed and tangled his rod in a cypress branch, ripped his rod out in anger and it broke, then blamed the tree branch for breaking his rod LOL

Lol, I'm going to crawl all the way out on a limb here and say that DeFoe has "validated" himself as one of the best anglers on the planet. He's dominated everywhere he's been and has won your beloved Classic. Again, just when I think you can't say anything more ridiculous...

So what you are saying is that the Classic is a second tier or even bush league event? There are a lot of "so called pros", Ott being one of them, that are past Classic champions. All this time I thought it was a big deal to win one.

It matters not what he’s done in the past. Is him sitting atop a pod of barely legal (in length) schooling fish that’s in a constant feeding frenzy, and plucking them out in virtually every cast a demonstration of his skill and fishing prowess or skill of being able to find a pod of that size on his electronics? He’s probably caught 2-3 times as many fish than what’s he has been able to score. To me that’s not a demonstration of being the best of the best and being able to read the conditions and find the big fish that are more solidarity. At least some below him are trying to play the part.
