2010 Big Ten Bass Fishing Championship Details, Rules, Guidelines
« on: September 23, 2010, 01:13:17 AM »

Big Ten Bass Fishing Championship Boat Volunteer Guidelines

Boat volunteers bring:
•   Boat insurance (copy available just in case)
•   Net
•   3 Adult PFDs – Let us know if short a PFD. Will be a few student extras
•   Bump board or equivalent

Students will bring:
•   MI fishing license
•   Rod(s) & tackle – There will be a wide variance in experience & gear

Saturday Practice Day Guidelines
Boat volunteer serves as a coach and can fish. Advises on lure presentation, lake locations, etc to help catch fish. Give tips on scenarios/conditions students can face on Sunday because students are required to make all decisions on Sunday. Boater volunteer operates combustible engine at all times.

Sunday Tournament Day Guidelines
Boat volunteer serves as a tournament official and cannot fish. Cannot give students presentation or lake location advice. Can help students care for live well fish because big water care is more important than most students are use to. Boater volunteer operates combustible engine at all times. 

Tournament day guidelines are meant to keep an even playing field. The purpose of these guidelines is for student owned boats to not be put at a disadvantage to students fishing on local volunteer boats. But as a team event students on the same team may communicate during the tournament.

Rules Overview – Students will have full rules pack
•   Standard tournament safety rules apply. i.e. PFDs required when gas motor on.
•   Standard tournament dead fish & late check-in penalties
•   Each boat can weigh in 5 fish
•   Winning school determined by best 3 boat total
•   Communication allowed between school members during tournament
•   U.S. waters of Lake St. Clair only – Detroit & St. Clair Rivers off limits beyond boundaries - see map below.

Help stop invasive spcies. Don't move fish between unconnected bodies of water. Clean, drain and dry your boat before launching on another water body.
