Fishing

All fishing must be done from a watercraft- boats, canoes, kayaks, paddleboards, float tubes etc are all legal. No fishing from shore.

Anglers may launch from anywhere but must fish in Marine Area 6 and must travel by water to the weigh station.

Fishing begins at 5:14AM (Dawn) and is enforced by the honor system.

Anglers are discouraged from making land before weigh in. This will help reduce claims of foul play and cheating.

All fish must be brought by watercraft to the weigh station and presented by the angler who landed the fish along with their ID and proof of registration.

Fish will be Inspected, weighed and documented before being returned to the angler. All fish will be inspected for tampering and foreign objects- don’t be THAT guy!

Weigh station closes at 3:00PM. All vessels must be in the immediate area in queue and within the Marina by 3:00PM. This judgement call will be up to the discretion of the weighmaster and the tournament director. Don’t make us make that call, get in early!
