  3. Launch Order based upon entries received. MUST REGISTER ONLINE!
  4. Life Jackets must be worn when big motor is in use!!!!
  5. Only Artificial Baits may be used in tournaments.
  6. Only one rod may be used at a time. This means only one lure or bait in the water per angler at a time.
  7. Teams will catch a five fish limit per team. There is not a minimum size limit. Teams can keep any size fish.
  8. Beginning Jan 2019 Teams must be using non-penetrating cull tags. No culling of dead fish. .25lb penalty per dead fish.
  9. No fishing with 50 yards of a competing team. No fishing within 50ft of a competing team that is anchored with the trolling motor in the stowed position.
  10. Jr division will weigh in at 2:00pm and High School will weigh in at 2:30pm. Each minute a team is late will result in a .25lb penalty. After 15 minutes the team will be disqualified.
  11. All protest must be presented to the Director after weigh in and before the awards are presented. Only Youth Anglers can protest!!!!
  12. Jr Boat Captains can net fish for the team, help Jr angers get unhung, help with the rerigging or retying of a lure, run the trolling motor if necessary, assist with culling of fish. (Please use all of the listed moments as coachable moments so that our Jr Anglers can do all of the above listed on their own eventually.)
  13. Jr Boat Captains may not land or catch fish for Jr anglers!!! They can only net fish.
  14. High School Boat Captains may coach their high school team only. They are not to net fish, retie, rerig, run the trolling motor, help with a snag or hang-up, or catch fish for the High School team. They are to only coach the team with suggestions. In the event a high school angler is fishing alone the the Boat Captain will be allowed to net fish for the angler. This is only in the event a High School Angler is fishing alone.
  15. Boat Captains are allowed to fish. Boat Captains of both divisions can opt to fish by paying into a $5 Pot. Boat Captains will be able to weigh in one fish to win the pot. Must be 12 inches or larger. Boat Captains are not allowed to fish until the Jr or High School team boats a keeper. Boat Captains are only allowed to fish off of the back deck and must respect the casting area of the Jr or High School Team they are with. The $5 pot is 100% payback. Boat Captains must also respect the team’s choice to relocate to another area.
  16. Prizes will be awarded to the top three teams in each division. Prizes will be based upon payout of entries received. Prizes will be 44 tackle gift cards, Reels (Lews or 13 fishing), Gillreaper Boxes, and Vexan Gear.
