  1. Hi, I would like to join the competition for the surf perch. Can I get additional information on how to register. Thank you.

  2. 1)After registering, how does the participants receive their MTF badge and official measuring tape?
    2) How does one show proof of DFG 2021 fishing license?

    1. Hi!
      1) official badge and measuring tape are mailed to the shipping address

      2) We do not need to see proof of fishing license. The responsibility is placed on the participant to make sure that they have the proper license to fish.

      1. Ok, thanks for replying! Mail delivery times are slower nowadays, as you may know. Also, A couple weeks ago our mail carriers truck got broken into and mail was stolen.

      2. Oh I’m sorry your mail was stolen! I agree that is always frustrating. We always have tracking numbers on all our shipments so we will be able to track your mail if lost or received.

      3. Thank you!
