The tournament rules are simple, you have to catch the largest fish previously presented to all participants who are obliged to use the same rod.

Only selected fish caught with the tournament rod are counted. If you want to take part in the tournament, you have to use the best type of the required rod you have in your backpack.
In order for the tournament to begin, a certain minimum number of players must participate. Each tournament lasts 3 hours.
Each player can participate in a maximum of three tournaments a day. If a tournament does not begin due to an insufficient number of participants, this tournament does not count in the maximum number of tournaments played.
If a player has a too weak rod at the current level or does not have it at all, he/she will not be able to take part in the tournament.
