District 2 – Sayers, State Park, 9/24/17

Location – Sayers Lake
Launch Site – Hunters Run East
Dates – Sunday, September 24th
Time – 7:00 am – 3:00 pm, (if we can launch earlier we will try)
Registration – 6:00 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 5 fish tournament, 12″ 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.
Speed limit is 45 mph, and is enforced. If ticketed, you could be disqualified.

No wake areas mean NO WAKE.

Area around the dam and the Marina are OFF LIMITS. Areas posted BOATS KEEP OUT means no casting into that area either.

It is suggested that the cost of the gas/oil used during the day be shared between the boater and the rider.

The weigh in will be done in the parking lot. If you don’t want to trailer your boat you can either pull your boat up onto shore or tie up on the outside of the docks.

Note about weigh-in. Both people must come to the trailer to check in. When you come up to the table, turn in your numbers, get and sign your weigh-in slips, and hold onto them. If you don’t have fish to weigh in, place a zero on your sheet and hand it back to me. Get in the line for bags (CANNOT use your own). When you get your bag, you can get your fish and bring them back for weigh in. When you come back with your fish, give me your slip, verify weight and get your yellow copy. Return fish to water near the end of the boat slips (not right at the ramp) 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.

**Any culling system utilized must reduce fish handling stress and injury (e.g., clips and color coding). Devices that use or require punching / piercing a hole in the fish’s mouth are NOT permitted. Fish should not be lifted from a livewell by culling tubes, ropes, etc., in an attempt to reduce stress.
