1st Annual Tinboats.Net Labor Day weekend Tournament

Post by Jim »

Here it is folks. The Last tournamanet of 2007 for Tinboats.Net. If things go as planned and we get more active members and the site is still up and running, I will try to do 3 of these a year. Memorial Day Weekend, 4th of July Weekend, and Labor Day Weekend. Now, back to this Tournament.

Dates: This Tournament is going to start Thursday August 30, 2007 at 8:00 PM and ends Monday September 3, 2007 at 8:00 PM. That gives you more than 3.5 days to catch some fish.

Species: Largemouth,Smallmouth Bass, and Spotted Bass

Bait used: ANYTHING GOES with this one. Use your go-to bait, use something new, makes no difference this time.

Rules: Like the last time, a secret item must be included with a picture of your fish, and that item will be announced Thursday night August 30th around 8PM. This is mandatory.

This time we are going to try something different. No one can talk about their fish or post pictures untill Monday September 3, and all pictures must be in by 8:00 PM on Tuesday September 4. The suspence will be killing everyone...I know.

On Monday you can submit as many pictures as you want, BUT only your biggest will count.

I will choose the winner, and If I cant decide who's fish is the biggest, It will be cast to vote.

Prizes: The winner gets a super fancy plaque (LOL!) like our current reigning champ JustfishN. The winner will also receive 2 $25 dollar gift certificates. One from TackleWarehouse, and one from PCBAITS.

Above all I reserve the right to change anything I want at anytime in regards to these Tournaments.

The sign up deadline for this Tournament will be August 24 at 8PM. Just reply to this post if your in.

If I missed anything, or you can think of anything, PLEASE PM me. :D

Good luck boys and girls! :D

Great contest, but regarding the "Post your picture by 8:00 Monday night" thing. I, for one, may not even be home by that time. Think about the members here that travel on that weekend for camping (I for one), and may not even get home until late that evening, way after 8:00. And, I'm sure the last thing on their mind as they pull into the driveway with a camper and tired family is to jump on the computer and quickly post a picture of their caught bass. I'm sure stern looks with come from the spouse and family as they unpack everything from the weekend while you're busy posting pics. Just my thought. How about 8:00 TUESDAY night?

You had better just start engraving my name on the trophy now after that insult. I will now vow to fish twice as hard and I am contacting PC Baits to get some of guaranteed, 110% super duper special DamnPeoples lunker catching baits.

Go to Wallyworld and get a disposable camera. When you get them developed, get them on a disk not as pictures. Then, load them onto your computer.


Hey Jim, how come spots don't count? In Allatoona, we mostly have spots, with just a few largies here and there.

The issue I see is, I may never be able to participate in these tourneys, as dad doesn't always let me out on holidays, as it is too dangerous with all the drunka$$ed s**theads driving there 40 foot Donzis at 400 bazillion mph, thinking that others will just get out of his way. On the 4th, there was a boat collision here where one boat sank, and they still haven't found it, or its occupants. Holidays seem to give people excuses to drink WAY more than they should. I don't have a problem with alcohol. But holidays are just too dangerous.

Go ahead and sign me up, as it wont cost you anything, as you ain't sending baits out. I just *may* find a way to get out on a less dangerous lake. (not likely)

Thanks, bassboy1

I was not familiar with Spotted Bass, But after doing some research, I decided that they should be included in the Tournament.

The winner from the last tournament was caught from shore. So don't worry/think you need to be on a boat. Try super early in the morning or closer to night when all the yahoos are off the water.
