If you enter all five tournaments and fish at least four of them you will be eligible for the Rock Outdoors season ending bonus. This bonus will make the last tournament on High Rock worth $10,000 to the winner.


Also New for 2024

Based on the survey results we are going to be an Off limits with no practice for 2024.



The tournament waters shall be off limits from 12:01am the Monday preceding the tournament until the tournament blastoff. TEAMS MAY NOT WILLFULLY RECEIVE INFORMATION FROM ANYONE WHO HAS BEEN ON THE TOURNAMENT WATERS DURING THE OFF-LIMITS PERIOD. Teams may not have the assistance of any non-competitor for the purpose of locating or catching fish on the competition day. Any competitor found guilty of violating the off limits period will have their catch disqualified and face a disciplinary hearing before being allowed to fish any more on the Trail. If either of the team members is in violation of the off limits rule, both members of that team will be disqualified unless pre-approved as described below.

*-Exception-*  It is permissible for one team member to compete in a tournament, alone or with a legal sub, even if his/her partner has been on the tournament water during off limits as long as (1) no information is shared between the partners, AND (2) the team requests approval from the tournament director for one team member to compete in the tournament while the other team member will not be competing and will be on the water during off limits, AND (3) the tournament director approves the request BEFORE THE OFF LIMITS PERIOD BEGINS.

We will have a pre-tournament meeting at Rock Outdoors the Friday night preceding the tournament on our first and last tournament of the year. Our pre-tournament meeting on the other three tournaments will be on the water prior to blast off the morning of the tournament. At least one member must be present to receive points and to be eligible for bonus money.

There will be a 5 fish per team limit. All culling must be done at the time the 6th fish is caught. You cannot have more than 5 fish in your live well at any time except for a dead fish that is not included in your limit.

The penalty for having more than a limit in your live well is 1 lb.

The size limit for our tournaments will be 14 inches.

The penalty for a short fish is 1 lb.
