hey guys,

I was thinking about making up a little tourny either permitted or not permitted on a med-smaller lake around. Now i've never permitted any tounrys or done any organizing so if i were to do it either help or patientce would be appericated. Just a quick thought of either a night tourny, like 5-10 or a normal day tourny, but i was thinking make it a team tourny 50 bucks a team. Heres an interesting one for you what if i made it 50 bucks a deam WINNERS TAKE ALL!?? what do you think, i would say if we could get like 5-10 boats it would be awsome! nice money maker if you can get into some fish? Give me your thought.

i would be interested. you will need to pull a permit for a "tourney". weighing fish, exchanging money, keeping limits of fish .........all require a permit. id ask some of the guys here as they can help you get that part straightened out. where are you thinking of having it?

Pick a date and location, check the permitted tournament schedule at the top of the threads columb in this section to see what is open on a certain date, and call Bill forman at the DEP in the Inland Fisheries Dept.

Phone 860-424-3474

He'll send or fax you the permit paperwork, you might be able to download it off the website? I'm not sure, because I have copies of blank permit paperwork on hand, but he'll get you going.

You need to borrow or buy a digital tournament scale, or do a bush league handheld scale weigh in. Collect cash, check livewells before the event, etc.

There is a lot that goes into these events if you want to do it right.

Id be interested....but like Slime said...you would have to pull a permit...even if just to be able to have the boats legally have fish on board for the most part.

You can get the permit online and then fax it to Bill. You only need to fill out page one
