The 20th annual "Mad Dog" Moore Memorial Bass Tournament was held on Sept 10th at Lake Fork with a record number of teams fishing (194). Due to the problems that we encountered with the long weigh-in line we have decided to change the format from a team stringer tournament to an hourly big bass tournament. Lots of details to work out but most likely 5 places per hour and then an overall standing. Each year that we encounter a problem, we try to address it and correct it for the next year. Next year's tournament is scheduled like always, the first Saturday after Labor day. September 9th 2017

With that many teams why don't you do a staggered start with a staggered weigh-in. I have fished in a ton of tournaments over the years that had that many teams and the starts and finishes were all in flights. There are plenty of big fish tournaments on Fork. It does not need another one. I feel you will lose entries if you do that.

No No No just do boat numbers and send them off 1 by 1. then do flight weigh ins. this is a great tournament and me and my dad have fished this tournament the last 4 years and is a great time. this time was kinda crazy with the weigh in but we can do stuff better. but please don't make it a big bass tournament. you will honestly not have the turn out for this tournament if you make it a big bass tournament.

it is for a great cause, and I will still be there no matter what, but please keep it a stringer tournament.

what does everybody else think?

We have considered the staggered flights and got lots of negative feed back on that. With it being in HOT September, if you draw a flight that has you starting late, you lose that morning bite and nobody wants to be on the water till 4pm in September. We are looking at doing hourly weigh-ins that would pay five places per hour and then have an overall payback. The details are not ironed out yet. But, after the long weigh-in line we had and the negative feedback from many, this appeared to be our best option. It will allow more people to get checks and there will still be some good money for those making it into the overall standings.

Another vote for staggered flights. I would rather fish until 4 in a bag tourney rather than until 3 in a big fish tourney.

I hate to hear folks talk about not fishing if we go to an hourly tournament. As with everything else you can't please everybody no matter what is done. We talked to a lot of tournament fisherman prior to making this decision and had negative and positive feedback on flights and hourly. We will continue to do our best to put on a great event, take care of our fishermen (Free BBQ n beer, tshirts, tackle packs, live band, huge raffle, etc.) and keep raising money for a great charity. BTW....the donation to the Shriner's burn hospital for children will be the largest donation we have ever made. Most importantly...we will continue to do our best and put on a great event in honor of our fallen brother who made the ultimate sacrifice...Michael "Mad Dog" Moore. Thanks to everybody who has supported us over the years and continue to do so.

My opinion only: I'd fish it if it was a 3 fish bag.Less # of fish stressed /mortality.Flights takeoff preferred . Hourly BB tournament & I wouldn't. Just my personal opinion on 2nd week of September weather conditions. I don't really have a dog in this hunt this year,but would DEFINATELY fish it next year. Never really saw the reasons/benefits of 5 fish stringers instead of 3 fish stringers on a slot lake when you can only weigh in one over fish anyway. I think an hourly would just make it total chaos & so much more work for workers/volunteers, staff but as stated above it's just my own opinion. Hope the Good Lord lets me be there for the next one.

Stagger the flights by registration, sounds like 25-30 anglers to a flight, it works for bass champs, media etc... Pretty simple solution really, easy fix imo.
