OK Fitz

I will get the ball rolling

May I pay $100 and fish both tourneys?

So slip down the river, smack a bass, roll back to the pond and grab another and present both pictures at the checkin on my camera card?

Notice how I said bass, I have a problem with bycatch.

You will need to take 2 pictures per fish; one of the fish on the ruler & one of the location. EXIF data well tell us the rest.  :youbeauty

 Just need to make sure it's the river fish Vs river fish & same for the lake.

Hi Chris,

No, this event is for kayak and canoe only, however you can have electric powered kayak or canoe.

There is plenty of event around for outboard or electic powered boats.

Cheers,

fitz..

Adding the river as a stand alone section is a great idea. Good for the little kayaks that would never be suitable for the open lake and those with the fragile expensive rigs can happily still fish the lake. Just which to one to pick? River or lake?
