Any inorganic item(s) including, but not limited to, fishing tackle, wire, rocks, and rope found to be
attached to a fish or inside a fish’s mouth when a fish is caught shall be removed by the angler prior to
weigh-in. The weigh master has the right to cut open and inspect fish at their discretion. If any inorganic
material is not visible to the angler and is discovered when the fish is opened, this material shall be
examined by the Tournament Committee and, if deemed to be inside the fish prior to it being caught by
the angler weighing it in, the weight of such inorganic item(s) shall be deducted from the official weight
of the fish. If, however, the Tournament Committee deems that the inorganic material was intentionally
introduced to the fish after that fish was caught and prior to the weighing of that fish, additional action
may be taken including, but not limited to, the disqualification of the fish and angler.
