"Gentlemen, ladies, this is a catch, photograph, and release tournament!" Jerry Collins is standing in front of the RV. His Long Island accent booms out across the crowd. "Fish you can't release don't count." He lifts a long sticker from a box at his feet. "This is your measuring tape. You put it on your paddle." To enter a catch, he says, you have to take its picture against the sticker, then turn your camera in by the deadline at the end of the day. A judging committee reviews these photos, assigns your fish an official length, then posts the leaders on a big whiteboard pegged up beneath one of the tents. Tournament hours are 5 AM to 7 PM. "Make sure you keep an eye on your watch," he says. "Guys, I'll be really sorry for you, but if we don't see you pulling in by 7, well," he shrugs, "I don't care if you've got a 50-inch bass on there. You're out of luck."
