Official Rules:

The tournament, sponsors, affiliates, partners and its officials are not responsible for accidents, losses and/or theft.

1. Federal, state and local laws must be followed.

2. This is a single elimination bracket challenge. You will be competing against one boat per stage. If you win, you will move on to the next round. If you lose, you are eliminated.

3. Only the first 32 teams that enter will be registered, then it will be first come, first serve.

4. When all 32 entries have been approved for registration, teams will be randomly drawn and assigned to the bracket.

5. In the event of a tie, the tiebreaker will be determined by a one hour fish-off that will start shortly after the first official weigh-in has been completed. The minimum length will be dropped to a 10” minimum for the tiebreaker only. The Tournament Director will recheck the live wells before the tiebreaker fish-off begins. In the event of a tie (at the end of the tiebreaker), the winner will be determined by a coin toss. Including the tie breaker fish-off, you will have two opportunities to win on the water.
