  • Coast Guard approved PFD's must be worn at all times the boat is on plane.
  • Kill switches must be attached to driver at all times the boat is on plane.
  • No more than a 5 fish limit can be in possession at anytime. No culling at the ramp.
  • All participants MUST be at the ramp PRIOR to the tournament start time; no late starts will be allowed.
  • At least 1 angler per team MUST be a member in good standing of TNBassFishing.Com.
  • TNBassFishing.Com reserves the right to deny entry into any tournament.

  • No dead fish or short fish will be allowed to be weighed in.
  • If short fish and/or dead fish are brought to the scales the team will be penalized by eliminating their biggest fish.
  • Live wells will be inspected prior to blast off by a designated blast off boat(s). The blast off boat(s) will be the highest boat number(s) drawn at the pre-tournament meeting. During blast off, all competitor boats will idle slowly by the blast off boat(s) with live well lids open.
  • Any protests need to be made to a tournament committee member within 30 minutes of weigh-in completion. Protestors will be asked to sign a written statement presenting their claim.
  • There will be a brief meeting that is mandatory for all participants to attend at the boat ramp prior to the tournament start. This is when blast off order and weigh in order will be assigned by draw.
  • A tournament committee will be announced prior to the tournament start time; any decisions made by the Tournament Committee are final.
  • A minimum of 5 tournaments fished will qualify that team for the Classic event in March of 2012.
