REMINDERS!

Good morning. Some reminders for anglers fishing the Pickwick Lake Catch-A-Dream Bass Classic. Registration will be open on-line through noon tomorrow. Checking in will be at FBC Counce on Friday from 4:30-7:30 p.m. Teams not yet signed up can still sign up on Friday night. Meal tickets purchased with entry can be turned in here for a meal prepared by the youth of FBC. Additional plates can also be purchased. Boat numbers, goody bags, and drinks (all of these provided by our GREAT SPONSORS) will be handed out at this time. Release forms will also be signed. Saturday morning boat check will be at the post office near the entrance to the State Park and will begin at 4:00 a.m. Anglers may launch at either ramp. Blast off will be from the pier at the ramp nearest the lake. We will try our best to be ready to go at safe light; it helps if anglers come on early and let’s get everyone checked and in the water. Of course we will monitor this weather situation closely and determine if we need to delay our blast off time. SAFETY will be the number 1 priority period. As we posted yesterday, lights must be on and working. Anglers need to gather by number and will need to show your number to us when idling by the pier. Again, if you miss your designated place in line, you will be moved to the end of the blast off. Anyone passing a boat in front of them during the idle out will be automatically disqualified. There will be a four fish limit, all of which must be 15″ long. There will be a 1/2 pound penalty per dead fish; if you have more than 2 dead fish your weight will be forfeited for the day. No dead fish will be weighed for the lunker prize. Checking back in at the end of the tournament will be at the weigh in station, not the pier. You must walk up the hill to a table that we will have set up with someone working it and tell them your team number before your check in time to be officially in (can’t just pull in and park and be counted in; must check in at table). All fish must be weighed before loading boats. It’s close to go time; are you ready? Are you signed up? Hope to see you Friday night!!
