Be at the Dennis Station Rd. ramp for a safe light blast off, Saturday, May 23, 09. This is the 5th tournament of our 8 event Jackson Lake Pot Tournament Spring/Summer series. The series of 8 tournaments will be followed by a 2 day competition for the accumilated Classic Pot. See rules for Classic eligibility(fish 6 of 8).

In addition to 1 in 5 payback, big fish pots, and a Classic pot, we are in points competition for three free rides in our 2 day July Classic. Just $40 puts you in the game, so don't let the fun and friendly competition go down without you.

Use this thread for all subjects related to our past or future event. Planning to fish the next one? Let us know here and register at the web site.

We wish you all the luck in the future. As far as weigh in is concerned we knew what we were dealing with when the main scales broke. We did the best we could with what we had. Everyone that weighed in was present during their weigh in and no one complained until 2 days later. We appolagize for the inconvienence but the weight will stand. Its the only way to be fair to all. Some people had a good day, i would hate to punish them for something that is speculated. After weigh in is complete it is final.We have cured the scale issue by having 3 sets now. This will not happen again. Any questions or concerns please call me , we take pride in this series and are Fair about everything. Sometimes you cant please everyone. Mike 478/3630871

Mike I understand what you are saying, We dealt with what we had and did the best we could.I didnt have anything to do with the weighin so I am not sure what was done and what was not. I didnt have a good catch anyways. Bobby is nice enough to let us use his scales, But if he has something going on that he needs them for he takes them. I appreciate all Bobby does for us. Whats done is done at this point. We are just a bunch of guys trying to have fun and compete for a low cost. We are not experts at throwing tournaments, Its a thing where everyone is and should be involved. It really has nothing to do with being fair, We did not expect for the scales to not be there and The backup scale we had to not be working. If we did not have what we had no one would have gotten weighed in. I just enjoying fishing with you Everyone and having a good time, Thats what its all about. I know you take Fishing a little More serious then most People do Mike but loosen up a little, We did what we could in the case of a broken scale.

I noticed at Jackson the last 2 tournaments that a couple guys went ahead and pulled their boat out of the water and then weighed their fish. Are we allowed to do this? I know one of the guys wasnt a regular and probably didn't know but maybe we could make it clear so everyone is on the same page?

Wish you guys would check everyone schedules when you plan a tournament. We, C&R Bass Series, are fishing out of Little River on the 23rd. Does David at Little River even know you are coming? This weekend in particular is going to be crowded enough. Your guys are welcome to fish both tournaments we will be weighing in at 3pm.

thats the whole problem clay every one is scheduling on top of each other, heck i had to pay 225.00 for the BFL at west point to make it to the regional or wildcard and ain't even going due to the oconee marine classic. i think you will draw em anyway due to the amount of money you stand to win. when i use to put on my t-ments me ,bobby, BFL and R&R would all get together and make sure we didn't step on each other, now there are just way to many ,and no one is drawing (except berry's) the boats.

This series was started so people could have fun competing and not have to put out a lot of money. Most of the people fishing are out there for fun and the possibility of making some money to cover your expenses is a bonus. I think they are happy if they draw 15 boats or 50, this is not a money maker for anybody just some cheap fun. Mike has done the best he can to schedule around other tournaments but like you said there are so many it is almost impossible to schedule around them all.

After further consideration of the events that took place on Saturday with the scales we are not going to count this tourny in our series. This means 0 points will be rewarded for this event. We are now going to be fishing the Best 5- of 7 events not 6- of 8.This decision is soaly based on what I believe is fair ,not on any of our competitors wishes. Thank you for the continued support in our series. I have deffinetly learned a valuable lesson in running these tournys If both your scales fail give back there money and reschedule. This will not happen again. Mike

Yeah I understand you are out there to win just like us all. It doesnt bother me you are out there to win, Thats a good thing. I just dont like to see people go that we fish with all the time. Everytime we fish we find out something new and try to make the next one better and fair for all.
