Ok so - the permit is in the works and the format is being worked out. It looks like we are going to allow anglers a little more time on the water by weighing in less often. Right now - weigh-ins will be at 9:00am - 11:00 am - 1:00pm and 3:00 pm. Each weigh-in will payout 1st BB ($300.00) 2nd BB ($200.00) 3rd BB ($100.00). Overall payout will pay 1st thru 5th based on 100 entries with an additional place paid for every 10 entries over 100.

Am I overlooking the entry fee? I cant find it posted.

I am a little confused on the weigh in times. Is it fish from 6-9a and weigh in. Then another weigh in between 9-11a. Another at 1p and another at 3p?

Can someone from BSBC please explain?

So, I've heard about these hourly weigh-in things before, but I'm still not quite sure how they are supposed to work.  Can someone explain how this type of tournament format works? I mean, do you HAVE to check in at every weigh-in period? Or can you just keep fishing through and wait for a weigh-in that you think you've got a chance at winning something in? It sounds like fun, but I'm just trying to figure out how these things work...
