I just built a pirogue for duck hunting, but I thought about fishing KBF Open on Toledo in October. From searching the website it is not very clear on if a pirogue is acceptable. I imagine it would be. Would y'all happen to know? Also how do yall keep your limits alive?

I built one several years ago and fished from it quite a bit before it was damaged in a storm. I've used it in fast and slow water and never had any serious issues other than getting used to the balance. Hang a stringer off the side and you should be fine.
I'm on other forums that deal with the old turbo powered Buicks.;)

A hybrid sit inside kayak is similar to a Pirogue and some people fish from canoes in kayak tournaments or at least the ones I've seen, and unless the rules state "no canoes" I wouldn't worry about it!
