Thank you to all that came out. And special thanks to all those that helped with live well checks and weigh-ins. We could not have done it without you all. We'll get photos posted as well as the final spreadsheet with results up in the coming days. Big bass winners we'll get payments soon as well.
Congrats to those that made the team!

YES. Recommended boaters have them available and that you use one! Discussion with partner for the day is suggested for verification of your access to a net. Co's, recommended you bring a small net of your own to our events to assure you will have one available for your use. Again verify with your boater for the day.
Boaters need to make seats available to Cos. Please have your “sit down” seats and/or “butt seats” available at this event. If necessary, do some swapping with another boater for a day. Career Cos may want to consider getting a couple different seat posts and a seat of their own to bring to any tournaments you attend. Again verify seat arrangements with your boater prior to launch.
In some cases you may be fishing solo for the day depending on pairings. This will be for one day only. Special situations may change this preference, and fishing alone is not a guarantee.
Boaters need liability coverage of at least $300k. Please have a copy of your insurance coverage saved on your phone, or a hard copy. Insurance cards do not show coverage amounts. Have a copy of your coverage amounts available, digital or hard copy will be accepted. There will be random checks! Non compliance of the $300k coverage drops you out of the event until corrected!

Let me know of any live-well, kill-switch, or light issues prior to 1st day launch, please. We want you safe and “No dead fish” is our goal as a group.
