Well, I think that would be great, but ask flippy about getting people from this site to commit to and participate in a random pairing tourney. It's like herding cats. Confused

Draw tourneys never pull attention like non-draw. Most guys want to fish with friends more than people they dont know. If I was a boater I know I would be worried how they will treat my boat and also their skill level in general (obviously I dont mean like are they a pro but...). Thats why when we used to do tournys we made them team tournys with a non-boaters list that if someone needed a partner they could contact someone off the non-boater list and figure out if they are someone they would want to fish with . Turnouts used to be much better. I see what your trying to do and its cool, getting more/new people into tounament fishing is awesome. My first tournament was one that was put on by someone on this site three years ago. I started on the non-boaters list and waited for someone to ask me if I wanted to fish with them. Just my opinion of course.

I like this idea as I have a boat to use for the tournament. I was wondering has anyone thought of a kayak/canoe fishing tournament?

x182dan - Again, flippy tried that last year. He proposed a tourney on Beseck Lake where you'd take a photo of your fish and release it. But I guess that he didn't offer free food. . . . Very Happy

I wouldn't mind a small stakes "honor system" tourney, where we'd each just record the weights of our own fish. Or we could require the nearest boater to paddle over and verify the weight of each fish before it's released. Whatever. If you organize it and I'm free, I'm in. Very Happy

I would think taking a picture of the fish and a picture of the fish on teh scale should be good enough. I figure we can trust people from this site? I think a small buy in would make it a little more fun. With that said I am down for either tournament if anything happends. It seems like there are so many kayak fisherman these days that maybe that could happen.

I only read the 1st and 2nd post but, i am in

basically it think it needs to be planed as quick as possible so that people dont have time to change their minds =P

even though CT is a small state people rather not travel and hour or two to fish a small tourney

maybe we could split the state in half or third

its hard because, there are so many tourneys especially as late spring begins ...

If not maybe I can plan a fish from shore or tin can/kayak/raft get together for my area =)

splitting it up with low cost and or honor system sounds pretty cool in my opinion... but still the non boater issue is still there...

Could do two differant divisions. Boaters and Non-Boaters. Two tournaments in one. Atleast let the non-boaters stand a chance?
