Where: Lake Travis – Mansfield Boat Ramp
When: 2-12-11
6:00AM – 6:45AM Check In (Look for a red Nissan Titan w/Nitro Z9 in the parking lot)
6:45AM Blast Off
12:00 End Time – All boats must be back inside the no wake buoys by 12:00PM


Cost: $40.00 dollars per boat


Pay Outs:


1-5 boats pay 1 place 100% of pot
6-14 boats pay 2 places 60%, 40% of pot
15+ boats pay 3 places 50%, 30%, 20% of pot

**No Big Bass Side Pot**


Rules:


All fish must be caught in a legal sporting manner, no trolling with the combustion motor

Each boat is subject to a livewell check prior to take off

Once the tournament has started there will be NO refunds for inclement weather. If a team deems the conditions unsafe they do so with the knowledge of no refunds after payment

Each team must register in person with cash only

Teams will weigh in their best 5 Fish (Largemouth, smallmouth, spotted or guad's) minimum is 14 inch length across all species

Dead fish will not be weighted in

Fish care is of extreme importance, please learn how to properly care for your fish, including being able to FIZZ a fish if needed. Our goal is to not have any floaters if we can avoid it

Each team must be back inside the no wake buoys by 12:00PM. Failure to do so will result in a DQ if observed by a tournament director.

If a team has boat problems, another team may volunteer to go get their fish and put them in a separate livewell on the working boat provided the working boat is back in time. One member of the team who had boat problems must be present as the weigh in

Safe boating must be observed at all times, life jack and kill switch are mandatory while boat is on plane

Weigh in will be conducted using a hand held scale and ABF owned weigh bag or a stationary scale. Teams are responsible for having their own weigh in bag to bring fish to the scales with.

Tournament Director has the final say, no appeals will be accepted

Come on all those that can make it.  

Not that I put stock in weather.com this far out, but Saturday is supposed to be nice weather.  However if we need to make adjustments we will post that up here.

Looking forward to it!  Hopefully a few changes to the approach and I can wash the terrible results I had last Saturday away.  

Also I know of at least a few empty back seats as of now. Post up if you are interested in fishing this but need a ride, we should be able to handle it.

I'm interested.  I live at Pt. Venture and would probably put in at the neighborhood ramp and drive to Mansfield Park.  Would this be allowed?  Also, I have not been to Mansfield Park in a long time and can't recall if there is a place to beach your boat or is it all rocks.  Courtesy dock to register and weigh in?  Is it team only?

Sounds like fun...and alot cheaper than Bass Champs.

You're more than welcome to come by land or sea. Most of the bank is rocky with only a small portion being sandy. There is a nice sized dock out there you can tie up to. We usually hold the check-in and weigh-in in the parking lot around T-Dub's Valentine's Red Titan, we'll be there by 6AM.  You CAN fish solo or team whichever you prefer.

If you need a weigh bag let one of us know, I've got one you can use to weigh and release.

I appreciate the information. I'm planning on participating if I can get my aerator pumps working again. I sucked some rocks into the pumps during the Bass Champs tourney. Cleaned them out over the weekend and bought some more 5 amp fuses. Should be able to get it running.

Look forward to feeding my habit and burning some gas on Saturday.

Cheers

Looks like this cold weather will end tomorrow and Sat is going to be a great day from the looks of weather.com

If anybody needs a backseat or looking for somebody to fill a backseat, don't hesitate to post it up. We will help you fill it.

I have to back out. I'm definitely try hit the next one. I will be on the lake but later on...after a few chores.. good luck everyone ...

Went this afternoon and caught four keepers in about 1.5 hrs. 2 of the keepers were <10 FOW. The other were off bluffs... These were solid 2-2.5 lbs...very nice...It's going to be a great weekend for fishing.
Chance to catch a big female coming up to feed...

Cheers...
