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.

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.
