Fishing Rules:

 Everyone in the boat must be a valid 2015 LOTSA Member in order to submit a contending fish.  Any boat with a non-member aboard will be immediately disqualified.

Only King Salmon are eligible to win the Tournament. The winning fish will be determined by weight. In the event of a tie for a certain place, the first fish called in will take that place and the 2nd fish will take the next spot in the standings. 

A contending fish must be caught by hook and line, retrieved by rod and reel, on angling tackle. Any fish having cuts, gaff marks, gill net or puncture marks anywhere on the body will be questioned.

As LOTSA is an organization dedicated to the conservation of the resource and advocate of Catch and Release to the extent possible, in an effort to conduct the tournament in as fair a manner as possible while minimizing the number of fish killed and boxed simply to be weighed in, the following procedure must be followed for any fish you desire to be entered for consideration in the tournament:

 Any contending fish must be called into the LOTSA Tournament Committee Boats on VHF Channel 10 as soon as it’s caught. The length of the fish (tip of nose to end of tail and approximate weight must be provided.  The Tournament Committee Boats will broadcast the info of the leading fish on a regular basis. 

Any fish that is NOT CALLED IN will not be eligible for  prize consideration.  Tournament Committee Boats will be available for calling in fish out of the Ports of Wilson, Olcott and Oak Orchard.

End Time is 2:00 PM.  Any fish called in after 2pm will not be eligible.  A fish cannot be called in until it is landed and in the boat.  Fish that are called in as being on the line but not landed by the deadline will not be eligible for prize consideration

The weigh-in will be at Krull Park.  It will start promptly at 3:00 PM.  All contending fish must be in line by 3:00 PM to be considered for prizes.

The winning fish must be within 3 inches of the length stated when called in or it will be disqualified.

Bring ONLY the called in and recorded fish you wish to enter for consideration to the tournament weigh in.

IT IS NOT THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE WEIGHMASTER TO DETERMINE WHICH FISH IN YOUR BOX IS THE LARGEST, PLEASE HAVE THE CALLED IN FISH YOU WISH TO ENTER IDENTIFED PRIOR TO ARRIVING AT THE WEIGH IN!!!

 

It is totally at the discretion of the LOTSA Tournament Committee to disqualify any fish for any illegal activity including altering the weight of the fish, etc.

If for whatever reason no winner is determined, 100% of the tournament fees will be refunded.

IN THE EVENT OF A TIE WEIGHT, WINNER/PLACE WILL BE DETERMINED BY ORDER OF ENTRY /CALLED INTO TOURNAMENT CONTROL.

Weather:

The LOTSA Tournament Committee may also make the decision to delay/shorten/change the fishing hours in the interest of safety. In the event the entire tournament is canceled, the tournament fee will be refunded.
