See Texas Poormans Bass Club for complete rules

This will be the 4th year in a row for this event, we typically have somewhere between 18-30 boats.

Please note that Athens is under special regulations per the TPWD
Quote:
For largemouth bass, length limit is a 14-21” slot. Bass 14 inches and less or 21 inches or greater in length may be retained. Only one largemouth bass 21 inches or greater may be retained each day. For smallmouth bass (if present), minimum length = 14 inches. No minimum length on spotted, Guadalupe, and Alabama bass (if present.) Daily bag limit for all species = 5 black bass in any combination.


what this boils down to is:
if you fish as a 2 angler team, you may weigh in up to 2 over 21"
If you fish solo, you may only weigh in 1 fish over 21"


For this event - we will allow only 1 over to be weighed in per boat. We will do this for the following reasons:
1. Fish care - this weekend is going to be very, very hot, will be more difficult to keep 2 overs healthy than 1 over and 4 unders.
2. Controversy avoidance - technically to weigh in 2 fish each angler must catch one. however we have no way of enforcing such a rule. i am sure everyone is honest, but this will prevent anyone else from wondering.
3. Fairness - this evens the playing field somewhat for single vs. team entry. hard enough to compete with only 1 bait in the water at a time.
