  1. I agree, the requirement for all on board to be entered reduces the "free loaders" fishing and having one person enter the fish. This tournament like many requires you to have a witness verify they saw the fish being legally caught, which would make it impossible to fish alone. I think most of us would not think it would be necessary to have a written agreement with a fishing partner you have fished with for 18-20 years. But here we are.
  2. $37,000 total kept by the so called angler not a dime to the other three on board.
  3. So, back to the question. Are any of you aware of a situation like this going to litigation? Its sad that it needs to go this way but I was clear when I told the guy I was not going to just give him $37,000 without a fight.
  4. Sometimes we dont really know who we are in company with. Like the buddy you have known for years that runs off with your wife. Things happen.
  5. It is supposed to be a time for celebration as it was quite an accomplishment. But, when your a dirtbag looking to profit at any cost this is what happens.
  6. Has there been a court case in the past where one crew member aboard of a boat entered a fish that won a tournament but declined to split the winnings in any way? For instance, lets say there were 4 people fishing a tournament on Lake O that required all on board to have a ticket for the others be legally allowed to fish the derby. A rod goes off, one of the non owners of the boat fights the fish, the boat owner/captain nets the fish. The fish is then rightfully entered by the angler. Later, the angler decides to keep all of the winnings for himself alone. Has a case like this gone to court?
  7. If I run mine more then 10-15' back and take a hit on a turn, the rigger that fired many times will get into my dipsy line.
  8. I am looking for a triple or four rod tree. I will be in the Fair Haven area for a few more days.
  9. Great advice all. I picked up two 10 color rods today. And I will add 2oz of weight if needed. I didn’t realize how big of a reel would be needed for 20 colors. I wanted 20 colors to get down to 90-100’ for lakers here in Maine off of boards then my two riggers. I will use these 10 color with weights to get to 60-64’ off of boards outside my high dipsy
  10. I will use the leadcore in Maine in the spring. I don’t want to buy copper rods.
  11. I am considering setting up two leadcore rods with 20 colors each. I would like to add a 10’ section of 30 lb mono at 10 colors, and 15 colors to hook into my offshore boards. This was I would be more flexible on depths I could fish them off of boards. Any thoughts?
