The Tournament of Champions will be at Pittsfield Lake on Saturday May 26th
ALL new members shall receive a copy of the Roster, Bylaws, and Rules & Regulations. You should read carefully and obey all Rules and Bylaws.
It is the intent of this organization to engage in the preservation of “SPORT FISHING”, primarily for the “BLACK BASS”. Through the effort of these local sportsmen, every attempt will be made to return their fish, unharmed, to the waters from which they were taken.
The following rules will be enforced to see that this program is successful.
A twelve (12) inch minimum length on all bass caught. Any bass that does not measure twelve (12) inches overall in length will be returned immediately to the water. When fishing waters that have a longer length limit, the club will follow the respected body of water rules and regulations.
When fish are taken that exceed the minimum length, it is the duty of that fisherman to make every effort to keep that fish alive and well, so that the fish can be returned to the water after weigh-in. Aerated live wells, or coolers, are mandatory for each boat and they must be used to keep fish in good shape during the course of the tournament. It is critical that the fish are kept in water when the boat is underway. NO STRINGERS ARE ALLOWED.
A pre-determined weigh-in time shall mean just that. All contestants will be expected to be at the weigh-in site on time. Keep your catch in the water until your name is called. The club scales will be located at the edge of the water. Contestants not at the weigh-in site, ready to go, when their name is called will be docked weight or disqualified per tournament rule #28.
