For you Jack, it means you have to take the dirty rags, kids toys, spare prop, first aid kits, old trailer bunks, and rolls of duct tape out of your livewells so we all know you're not hiding any fish in there before the Bassoff starts!
the tourny director usually looks in the live well before the launch of a tourny to insure that someone doesnt have fish in it, prior to the tourny.
Long time ago they used to check and make sure they are working(when they checked livewells on the water) but with the main sign in trailer aways from the ramps its almost impossible to do, it can still be done but it would tie up time . it would take 2-3 hours just to get a tourny going. its time consuming.
