District 2 – Cowanesque, East Access – 8/16/15

Location – Cowanesque Lake
Launch Site – South Eastern Launch
Date – Sunday, August 16th
Time – 6:30 am – 2:30 pm, (if we can launch earlier we will try)
Registration – 5:30 am to 6:15 am

You must pay the launch fee of $3. The envelope and stub must be filled out completely. The envelope with the $3 fee must be place in the box at the top of the launch. The stub must be filled out completely and placed on the dash so it is clearly visible. Violators will be ticketed.

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.

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

No wake areas mean NO WAKE.

OFF LIMITS – Buoyed area around the dam, the beach areas, and 100 feet on either side of the launch. Areas posted BOATS KEEP OUT means no casting into that area either.

Fish care will be important today. Please make sure livewells are operating properly. I suggest using some kind of Please Release Me, Rejuvenade, or other similar product and ice as needed to reduce the livewell temp a few degrees.

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 the dock, 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.

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.
