We will not call numbers to come to weigh in. Watch the line. If you see more than 5 teams in line please wait a few minutes. We will weigh the fish as quickly as possible.
Place your “fish and water” in the sink then place your bag in the gray container to catch the water.
After the fish have been weighed in, grab your fish and have your photo taken then place the fish in the bag and return them safely to the lake.
The water temperature was reaching the mid 80’s on practice days. Please make sure you have Ice and livewell additives to use to help keep your fish alive. I would suggest filling your live well in the morning and run your aerator all day. The ½ lb penalty for a dead fish will be strictly enforced.
