Here's the tourney that everyone has been asking about! Here's your chance to come out with your family and friends to kick back and relax and catch some fish!

I'm teaming up with The Hook-Up on August 22nd to throw a Striper Tourney. The ASU Bass Fishing Team will be out there before the tourney to sell Hot Dogs and refreshments to raise money for their team. Please come out and show your support!

Rules...

-The tourney will start at Saturday August 22nd at 5PM-Midnight
-Entry is fee $15 per person (Cash Only)
-Minimum of 2 person per boat.
-Maximum person per boat is the Maximum that your boat is rated for.
-Sign up at The Hook-Up.. 3:00-4:30PM
-Your weight is the total weight your team catches divided by the number of anglers on boat. (Example: 3 person team catches 60lbs. Team weight will be 20lbs.)
-All boats must have an ice chest or livewell with ice.
-All stripers/white bass caught must be killed immediately!
-Live Bait is welcomed

awesome one question though, is there a max of 2 people per team. it reads 2 people per boat, but in example for weight it says 3man team = weight divided by team. So can we put 3 on a boat if we want??? Please???

Thinking about this some more...

$15 entry per person doesn't seem right.

This is a team tournament, not an individual tournament. It I fish 8 people off a ponton boat, my "team" is paying $120 to enter...yet we would split the same pot a 2 man "team" would at only a $30 entry fee. That does not seem right.

If it is not too late, I would ask that you reconsider this. Otherwise, you get hosed if you fish with more than 2 people on a boat. Why not just an entry fee per boat?

I thought about it plenty... Believe me. Let's say we make it PER BOAT. Then it would only be fair to limit the amount of anglers per boat. Why wouldn't I get 10 guys on my boat and throw out 20 rods? Wouldn't be fair to the team of two.

Also, consider this a tourney for fun with family and friends. NO ONE SHOULD BE FISHING THIS EXCLUSIVELY FOR MONEY. Winning a 15 dollar tourney isn't going to make you rich. However, the bragging rights are priceless. :)

Since this is the 1st of it's kind, we'll see how it turns out. There's also room for improvement later on.

How is that unfair? The more people you bring the bigger the weight.... thus you have a better chance at winning the whole enchilada. If I could id bring my 32ft express and invite everybody I knew I would. Besides its really for some of us to meet and greet and have a great time getting rid of those white bastards. Beer and fried fish:hump:

Remember, it is divided by how many people you have on your boat. So each person better hold their own. :)

Cuz if you catch 100 pounds with 2 people on the boat...it is a 50 lb avg, which is what is used to determine the winner. If you have 10 people on your boat and catch 100 pounds, that is only 10 pounds per person. It goes by avg weight per angler....not total weight per boat.

Either way, I'm not bitching...was just looking into it and analysing it and it came to mind is all... Opinions are like ass holes....
