Awesome! Thanks for getting the word out early. This is a great event, and I've really enjoyed it the last couple of years and will be looking forward to participating in it again this year! Always a lot of fun!

I use the the built in livewell on my stealth 12. I know I could fit at least 1 legal bass in there but am unsure if I could safely add others and keep them in good condition. Is there another good way to store more without getting a secondary livewell or would I be forced to constantly go back to the weigh in after I catch every fish?

Big change in the halibut division this year is you will be allowed to fish outside the bay! You just have to launch at start time from the specified location and make it back to the scale by 1pm!

I'm gonna throw this idea out there again because I think it will help raise more money. What if anglers were allowed to enter both divisions(paying $50) with the stipulation that they still have to abide by the bass rules(no bait, stay inside the bay etc.) if you caught a big halibut on artificials you would have a shot at winning both divisions. I think a number of people would do this(myself included) and it could add up to at least another $500 grossed for the tournament.

Bump.

Sign up now because you're going to end up signing up anyhow... If you're "put off" by it being a fishing tournament, don't be. Its chill, with good like minded people as yourself. Sign up, come out and enjoy the day on the water while supporting a great cause.

Over looked, found it. I used the same Paypal for the Steve Green Shootout and the same cost so it was hidden within the 90 entries for that.

Added you to the list.
