If you fish this tournament you are allowed 1 dead fish and the other 4 must be alive to weigh in and we have the option to turn them back into the river alive to continue to grow

Why??? Skeered someone will bring one in from
Santee-Cooper?

That's where I go twice a year and wear em' out!

Seriously, why the lie detector test.

BTW - If anyone with a river boat needs a partner,
I'll go. Power trim is out on my boat. $$$
With the obamaconomy it may be a while before I can fix it.
We can take it too... For a back up boat.

I have enough BIG CAT tackle for two people and some back-up too..
If you have the boat -I have the rest.

Please PM me your phone number if interested.

right on top of the hill. The lie detector is to help deter cheating.
