  4. All fish must be caught during the one & half hour fishing time (8:30-10:00).
  5. The Scouts must hook, bring in and land the fish. Each fish must be recorded and measured by an authorized judge in order to qualify. Only authorized judges can accept and record fish.  On all matters, the decisions of the judges shall be final.
  6. All fish will qualify. Any fish that is not kept for bait or consumption will be recorded and released. Only legal fish may be kept.
  7. All fish will be measured according to the Texas Parks & Wildlife measurement tips.
  8. When a tie exists between qualified potential winners (on smallest & longest categories) the one with the most fish caught will be the lead winner. When a tie exists in "the Most" category, the person with the longest overall inches of fish will be the lead winner.
  9. All Scouts will be entered into a drawing for additional tournament prizes. Scouts are eligible to win only one prize. The Scout must be present at the award ceremony to accept the prize.
  10. At check in, each Scout will be provided with bait; however, you may bring your own bait (live or artificial).
  11. Parents/Guardians may not touch the rod and reel while it is in the water. Parents/guardians may only help very young Cub Scouts, if absolutely necessary, but the Cub Scouts should do most of the work. This is a youth event. 

Scouting Safely

Safety is Your Responsibility posterThe BSA's Commitment to Safety is ongoing and we want you to know that the safety of our youth, volunteers, staff, and employees cannot be compromised. The Boy Scouts of America puts the utmost importance on the safe and healthy environments for its youth membership. The Sam Houston Area Council takes great strides to ensure the safety of its youth as well as the adult volunteer leadership that interacts with them. 

BSA Guide to Safe Scouting policies must be followed. All participants must follow Youth Protection Guidelines at all Scouting events. Highlights include:

  • Two-deep leadership on all outings required.  
  • One-on-one contact between adults and youth members is prohibited. 
  • The buddy system should be used at all times. 
  • Discipline must be constructive.

Health and safety must be integrated into everything we do, to the point that no injuries are acceptable beyond those that are readily treatable by Scout-rendered first aid. As an aid in the continuing effort to protect participants in a Scout activity, the BSA National Health and Safety Committee and the Council Services Division of the BSA National Council have developed the "Sweet Sixteen" of BSA safety procedures for physical activity. These 16 points, which embody good judgment and common sense, are applicable to all activities.
