9 reasons to use Sportfish Live

There are plenty of other reasons, but we got to start somewhere.

Reload the page to see a few more reasons.

Advanced livereporting

Display the latest catches as they come in, with automatic calculation of scores based on Scoring Criterias (does 1cm of Pike equal 1cm of Perch or Zander?). The results engine separates or combines multiple species on the fly.

Dashboard

Your quick overview of your most recent signups, catches, news articles, promotional items and much more. The dashboard is customizable for every user for every competition, making it the perfect companion tool for managing multiple competitions.

Catch Verification

Once a catch is recieved, check the photos and make sure the assigned start number is visible and floatation devices are on. Check the map for placement and any position violations. Full EXIF-data for each photo if available.

LiveApp

Our web based LiveApp is used for uploading of catches. It has been battle tested for tens of thousands of catches with plenty of additional features such as reading of News articles, Map, Weather and a dedicated GPS positioning page.

Disqualifications

Breaking the rules can be fun, but not when you are in charge. Quick and easy access to a list of predefined and custom disqualification reasons makes this step take less than 15 seconds. Reversing a disqualification is just as simple.

Promotional management

Manage sponsors, partners and banners easily. Each promotional item is tracked; both imprints and clicks gives you full statistics on each promotional item as well as overall dashboard statistics for your most primal number crunching needs.

User management

The more the merrier? Sometimes its good to have an extra set of hands, eyes and brains. Invite users to your account, wait for their approval, and grant access rights. Once you revoke access the user is instantly removed and logged out.

Competition website

Start instantly with your own customizable competition website with Signups, Map with Sonar Charts from Navionics, Results/LiveResults, News articles, Schedule, Regulations etc. Designed with promotional considerations in mind.

External website

Verify your domain ownership to embed our features and use our team functionality on your own website. Your visitors stay your website for signup, maps, live- results and much much more. Adapt visually by customizing your CSS styles.

A method to the madness

Why we built what we built how we built it.

Over ten years in the making, we are proud to present to you: Sportfish Live.

Simplicity and efficiency

This platform was built with simplicity and efficiency in mind. Tools, features, solutions and theories are based on a system that has evolved and been fine tuned for over a decade. A minimal management team of one, sometimes two, individuals have arranged over 200 sportfishing competition events across Sweden since 2011 using the accumulated knowledge and experience. We are very proud to present this platform to the public.

Flexibility and continuity

The features are built with both flexibility and continuity in mind. Every single change, status update or marker is logged with a timestamp, providing a historic event log. In order to meet our ambitious demands of safety and procedure continuity a few enforced procedures have been implemented to make running a competition as a single individual not only a reality but in fact a breeze.

That said, there are plenty of options to customize your competition; min/max participants per team, max teams per event, participation fees and payment methods, list of species, score criterias per species, min/max lengths per species, checkin questionaire, available start numbers, map basemaps and overlays, sponsors, partners and banners, e-mail templates and outgoing credentials, pushover credentials and much more can be customized per competition with per-event overrides.

Our way or the highway

Please review the enforced procedures thoroughly before applying for an account on this platform as these procedures are a core part of the platform architecture and cannot be disabled or bypassed. If you for any reason have reservations against any of them, this is not the platform for you.

Enforced procedures

Signup: For a team to be able to sign up, each individual participant needs a LiveID (free to register). This helps us comply with privacy data protection regulations (GDPR among others).

LiveApp: Once a team is signed up and payment has been verified, you activate the signup in the system. An email is sent to the team captain with links to try the Liveapp (and Check in the team). A test-catch must be reported using the LiveApp before it's possible to Check in. This shows us that the team can handle using the LiveApp.

Check in: The check in process is a questionarie that must be filled in correctly. Once this is done, the team becomes available on the Arrivals page of the Event Organizer in the Admin. This effectively forces the team to study the regulations.

Arrivals: All teams must be marked as Arrived on the event day. At this time start badges or numbered measures are selected and handed out to the team captain and hidden/sewn-in floatation devices for each team participant must be shown to the management. This is required for the team to be able to report catches in the LiveApp and tells us how many teams are out on the water.

Catches: When judging catches from team participants who reported hidden floatation devices a reminder notification is shown to the judge. This makes us extra alert when judging catches where no floatation device is visible and no reminder notification is shown.

Returns: When the teams return on time the Admin marks them as returned. Teams who return after the deadline can be disqualified with a single click. Teams not marked as returned will not show up in the final Results. This forces the organizer to keep track of which teams to contact for a safety check.
