Identifiers: You can check your identifiers in this area based on your tournaments. These identifiers will be released at the time chosen by the director or when the tournament begins.

LiveWell: This is an area to store your fish while cell service is low or does not exist. This area uses your devices memory to save the information. This info is only saved on your devices and any info left after a tournament must be removed after the tournament.

Manage Catch: After your fish have been submitted this is the area to check your submissions. You can also remove or cull a fish in here. During an autocull tournament you can only remove a fish if you make a mistake. To do this toggle the switch at the bottom right (hide cull) then swipe left to delete a fish. During a manual cull you can cull or delete a fish as well. To do this from the manage catch screen, choose your tournament and swipe right to delete and left to cull.

Standings: This is where you can check your standings.

Submit Catch: This is where you submit your fish to the leaderboard or livewell. 1. Choose your tournament, then browse for photo or capture one. 2. Enter the length without any decimals. For example, 1500 would go in as 15.00". 3. Submit to leaderboard or livewell if the service is low. You should get a prompt of "In the Net". Always go to Manage Catch or Standings to see if your fish made it to the server or leaderboard. If your fish did not make it, you will need to resubmit as our software does not automatically retry.

TourneyX® is not responsible for fish that cannot be uploaded because of limited smartphone service. If your anglers do not have cell service on the lake, the angler will need to supply an sd card or cable to connect to a computer to transfer images to the tournament director. The TD will have to do a manual submission from a computer at weigh in.(AKA Old School) Proper photo submission is the anglers responsibiltiy.

Tournament Types

One Day Tournament:

The one day tournament is a tournament that will start and end on the same day. When choosing a one day tournament it should have a starting time in the morning (am) and ending time in the evening/night (pm).


A custom tournament has no limitations on the start/end dates or times.

Multi-Day Tournament:

A multi-day tournament has no limitations on the start/end dates or times, but the submissions are limited to the start and end times of the tournament. For example if your tournament starts at 6:00 am and ends at 6:00 pm, during each day, submissions will be restricted to between 6:00 am - 6:00 pm, so no catches can be submitted at 7:00 pm, or 5:00 am.


A two day tournament where the angler chooses which day (night) they want to compete. All scoring uses the usual method of total fish length.
