See Byron Johnson to draw your launch position after paying your entry.  Designated persons will be checking live wells and tagging boats. Please launch your boats after you are paid and “After” you have had your live well checked and tagged. If you are fishing by yourself please have someone help launch your boat immediately after you have paid and received your launch number and had your live well checked and tagged.

Pre- tournament meeting will be at 6:20AM on the water followed by the launch order call out at approximately 6:30am. Mike Botos will discuss size limit, off limits, 1st place auction, and other formalities will be addressed here. If you are late for the meeting it is your responsibility to find another member on the lake to have your live well checked before you begin fishing.

We will be weighing fish from the parking lot at this tournament. Weigh in will take place at the tent.  Please pull your boat out to the parking lot. Weigh in will begin after all the officers are in place and an announcement will be made on the PA system when the scales are officially open. Keep your live wells running and do not bring your bag until the scales are open.
