Fishing time will start at 6 a.m. July 11 and end at 4 p.m. All fish hook-ups must be reported by 4 p.m., and all fish must be reported when returning to the harbor. All fish must be weighed on the same day caught by the tournament’s weigh master.
All boats must be in the break wall by 5 p.m. to weigh their catch. The scale and weigh master will be open until all qualifying fish is weighed provided the boat is in the break wall at Port Allen Harbor by the 5 p.m. cutoff.
There is no restrictions on the fishing area. However, boats will depart only from the Port Allen Harbor and all boats are required to check in with the base station. Check ins will start at 4 a.m.
Each team will designate a team captain and the team will not exceed the certified maximum of the owner’s boat.
