Boat Officials

Boating Officials, or marshalls as some call them, are the backbone of this format. Boat Officials are charged with the safe and orderly conduct of the anglers and the first line of our conservation efforts immediately after the angler him/herself. Every official is trained by the Pro Am Director(s) and are fully immersed into the rules and structure surrounding our events.

Pro Am Officials are primarily responsible for the following:

  • Assessing scoreable and non-scoreable bass.
  • Weighing fish and entering weights into the MLF Scoretracker Live scoring system and the Pro Am backup log.
  • Ensuring anglers adhere to the rules and assessing penalties when they do not.
  • Serve as timekeeper on the water.


Officials currently have to provide their own android/apple mobile device capable of communicating with the internet.
