    This is awesome! One question regarding "Only Salt Water fish caught in Islands of Wonders During Feb CST are eligible": Does Feb CST start today for the purpose of this bingo contest?

    PS: Never mind, it says "Contest runs Mon Feb 1, 2020 CST - Sun Feb 28, 2020 CST" :)

    Can a single digit of the fish length be used to fill in a square? like if i caught a fish with a length of 1.62, i can use just the 2 or just the 6 or just the 1 to fill a square?
