Title: Ruling on Anchoring
Post by: motocross269 on June 03, 2009, 05:41:53 PM
Are you considered "Anchored" if you have your TM up and a power pole down???..I am asking this as it applies to the 50 ft buffer rule....

This is taken from the Stren Tournament rules at the FLW Outdoors site:

Contestants may fish anywhere on tournament waters available to the public and accessible by boat, except areas designated as “off-limits,” “no boats” or “no fishing” by local, state or federal officials or within 50 yards of a competitor’s boat that was first anchored. An anchored boat is a boat held in a stable position by a line attached to a weight or by a Power-Pole with the trolling motor in the up position.
