    i have only fished one tourney. It was down in Fl (The Flordia Catfish Classic) My partner was bringing one in so I grabbed the net and proceded to get the fish when he told me wait till he breaks the water. I have never heard this before and was wondering is this for all tourneys? regular fishing i net them when i can get my net on them breaking the water or not.
