130 Old Mill road
Ephrata, PA 17522
I look forward to a great 2015 season!
The tournament has been cancelled due to unsafe water conditions.
New permit was submitted for Sunday, July 26th. This was the earliest that this could be re-scheduled due to conflicts with other tournaments. Please call, text, or email me to let me know if you want to transfer your application and payment to the re-scheduled date, transfer it for the June 28th Sayers tournament, or if you want your money back (if paid by check, I can shred it or return it). Thanks.
Location – Williamsport, PA
Launch Site – Antlers Launch
Dates – Sunday, April 12th
Time – 7:00 am – 3:00 pm, (if we can launch earlier we will try)
Registration – 5:45 am to 6:45 am
Do not launch your boat until you have checked in, completed the boat check and met up with your co-angler.
This will be a 3 fish tournament, 15″ minimum.
No culling of dead fish. Dead fish MUST be taken with you.
Lunker Fee is $10. Lunker must be a live fish.
All PA Boating and Fishing rules and regulation must be adhered to at all times.
All PA Bass tournament rules apply.
Angler must fish from the front deck and the Co-Angler must fish from the rear deck only.
It is suggested that the cost of the gas/oil used during the day be shared between the boater and the rider.
This will be a trailered weigh in. When you weigh-in, come up to the table, turn in your numbers, get and sign your weigh-in slips (keep them), then get in line for a bag (CANNOT use your own). Get your fish from your boat; have bag dinked & weighed. Give me your slip, verify weight and get your yellow copy. Return fish to water and return bags to table where you got them.
Last boat will call out numbers and each boat will launch every 10 seconds.
The tournament committee (District Officers present) will make the decision to hold a fog delay if necessary for safety. If so, the committee will make decisions regarding take off time, extending fishing hours, etc.
SAFETY – Life jackets MUST be worn when the outboard motor is running. This includes coming in to beach the boat, taking the boat on and off the trailer. If you are on the boat, the outboard is running, life jacket MUST be on for all aboard. Failure to do so can result in disqualification in the tournament.
