TOURNAMENT RULES
JUNE 2017
  1. All Tournaments will start at SAFE LIGHT AND END AT 3:00 P.M. - Weather permitting, as determined by the Tournament Director 
     

  2. Only artificial lures may be used.  No rods longer than 8 ft. in length will be allowed.  (Only one (1) line per fisherman is allowed in the water at any time.)  If live bait (shiners, minnows, etc.) are used, you will be disqualified and possibly suffer further penalty.
     

  3. A courtesy “50 yard cushion” is required between boats, as long as one of the boats is anchored and the trolling motor is up.  Violators may be subject to a penalty as determined by the Club Officers.
     

  4. No air boats.  Each boat must have an aerated live well able to sustain a live limit of fish.
     

  5. Anglers may fish anywhere they can go on the designated water by boat, in the water, from the launch site.  Each boat will be limited to two (2) anglers fishing.  A third non-fishing person (observer) may be in the boat.
     

  6. Limits for each tournament follow the FWC rules and Waivers. If you are late arriving to the Tournament and did not receive a Waiver, you must follow the State Regulations.
     

  7. Anyone late for departure or leaving a Tournament early must leave a note on a club member’s vehicle window or phone the Tournament Director.  This is a safety measure.  If a club member is not notified, disqualification and/or point penalty could result.
     

  8. Payouts will be based on team effort.  If only one team catches fish, they will receive First Place and Big Fish payout only.  The balance will go into the Classic Fund.
     

  9. Points awarded on team effort are awarded as follows:
    1 point per fish
    1 point per pound
    2 points for being there
     

  10. In the event a team splits up, the boater retains 100% of the total points that team presently had accumulated. A new team will start at zero.
     

  11. Weigh-in will be done in any order, but all fish must be brought to the scales and returned to the water by using a weigh-in bag with water in it as to not harm the fish.
     

  12. Anyone late for weigh-in will be penalized one (1) pound per minute up to ten (10) minutes, at which time they will be disqualified.  If a team is late, they will be notified immediately upon beaching their boat. If an angler/team has a breakdown, the team will not receive a penalty, nor will the team helping them back to safety.  Running out of gas is not a breakdown
     

  13. Dead Fish Penalty will be 1/4 pound per dead fish. If the dead fish is your big bass 1/4 pound penalty is NOT deducted from Big Fish weight.  NO CULLING DEAD FISH.  Every effort must be made to keep fish alive and released alive.
     

  14. No trolling  allowed.
