I had a question after reading the rules.

It says only 3 fish in the well at any one time. What is the reason for that? Just asking.

Also, if you weight in a hourly fish, do you take it back to the boat, or once it is recorded you are good to go. Would this mean you can only bring in two fish at the end?

Sorry if these are stupid questions.

Thanks,
EA

Reason for the 3 fish limit:
When we first started this tournament, we based our rules on other "big bass of the hour" touranaments. Most of those carry the 3 fish rule. Our reason - Since this is an individual tournament and there may be more than 2 contestants per boat, we felt we needed to limit the number of fish in a livewell that will only support 10 fish. Can you imagine if 3 or 4 contestants fished out of one boat and each had a 5 fish limit? :eek:

Hourly weigh-in:
You can weigh-in a fish every hour. So you could potentially cash a check in every hour. Once a fish is weighed, it is released back to the drink. You don't get it back. We record the weight of the fish and enter it in the overall standings. If you do weigh a fish in more than one hour, only your biggest fish is considered for the overall payout. So, your potential winnings are $3900 (8 x $300 for hourly winnings + $1500 for overall winnings).

Off limits period:
There is no "off limits" period. On the morning of the tournament, you can launch any time after 5a, but you can not make your first cast until 6a.

Polygraph:
We will polygraph, so make sure you know the rules. One year, we had to DQ the top 2 finishers.

If you have any other questions, let me know.

BS,

What was the reason to DQ the top 2 guys?

Also, I guess it is not a problem to fish the day before. We have the HHJ on Nov 18.

DQ #1: During the poly pre-screen, admitted to smoking lefties during the tournament.

DQ #2: Did not have fishing license in possession. I know this one sounds technical, but the law is the law and we did give some time (15-30min) for his wife to fax it over, but we never got it.

This brings me to the point - I see that Airfob and GrnHead like the coldies on the water, but you might want to wait until after the final weigh-in to bust one open. Unless of course, you have nada to weigh-in. ;D We should have plenty waiting for ya'll at the weigh-in. 8)

No it's not a problem to fish the day before.

Scratch,

Smoking lefties, that is too funny ;D

Where can I find the complete list of rules? I have the sign up sheet but it does not mention lefties... not implying anything though.

Also, after the fish Airfob caught 2 days ago ( 8.6), I think he can hold off on brews until the end. By the looks of the history, that would have taken the big money.

EA

PS. If Airfob wins, can we pay an extra fee to ask him more questions while he is hooked up to the poylgraph? That would be classic ;D ;D

Scratcher - I doub't we are the only ones who like to have a few on the water ;D

We fished plenty of T's last year where there was the no alcohol rule, while there were some mild shakes and slight flashbacks, we were able to read the rules and stay on the wagon...thanks for the concern, thought.

Actually, even if I do not weigh a fish can I get on that thing just for practice? I failed my last one and need to redeem myself :eek: :-X :p

If we fish this thing we will definitely hold off on the brew. But, right after last weigh in I am going straight to the whiskey with Jimmy! Should be a good time, hope to see some other guys on this board out there.

EA, If you have the sign up sheet, you have the complete list of rules. The first rule under Eligibility (see below)covers the leftie issue

"All State, Federal and Local laws must be obeyed, or contestants will be disqualified."

But, right after last weigh in I am going straight to the whiskey with Jimmy!
AirFob, That's too funny especially since Jimmy don't drink ;D

How many boats have signed up so far?
Fishless, 9 entries so far. Not to worry though, we usually get most of the entries the day before the tournament or the morning of the tournament. Keep in mind, that if you pay the morning of the tournament, there's a $10 late fee.

What is the address to snail mail the Bass Roundup Entry Applications? It states all entries must be postmarked by Mon, 11/13 but doesn't list the address to send them to.

I suppose I could just drive my entry up to Sportsman's Warehouse.
