THE DETAILS

The 2014 season is here!! Welcome aboard to the new members who have joined the site during the off season, and welcome back to all the existing members who have helped make the years gone by a major success!

This year will be no different than the past years, listed below are all the details you will need to know to take part in the ever growing world of MA Fish Finder tournament trail.

Entrance Fee: $50 per boat whether you fish solo or with a partner, the $50 includes the lunker fee.

Requirements: You must have a fully functional live well, whether it is a factory installed set up in your boat or an improvised set up made from a cooler. It must be aerated and large enough to keep 5 bass alive until they are weighed and released. A good formula to use for determining cooler size is 1 gallon of water per pound of fish. Keeping frozen ice bottles on board (to add to your live well water) is suggested for ensuring the live release of fish on the hottest of days. We also ask that you purchase a Golden Rule or some other measuring device to ensure your fish are all over 12 inches We also ask that you have a weigh in bag to transport your fish to the scale to speed the process and ensure live release of your catch.
All vessels MUST HAVE a PFD(life preserver) for each member of the team.

Sign Up: The sign up for each event will be posted the Sunday before the event at approximately 7pm It is your responsibility to sign up for any and all events you wish to fish, entry to events is on a first come first serve basis, each tournament will also have an "alternates" list you can add your name to in the event of cancelations. A post on the upcoming tournament thread with the words "YOUR TEAM NAME" "IS IN" is all that is required to participate.

Arrival: We ask that all participants arrive at least 1 hour in advance (6am) of the designated launch time (7am) to ensure the tournament director can collect your entry fee, inspect your live well and get your team registered and on the water on time for the launch. We also ask that all participants have the upmost respect and keep the noise down when arriving. Some of our events have houses/neighborhoods in close proximity to the parking/launch areas.

Start/End Time: All MAFF events will begin (launch) at precisely 7am and will conclude (weigh in) at 2pm unless otherwise noted on the tournament thread post.

Format: The use of live bait is strictly prohibited in ANY and ALL MAFF events, artificial baits only! All events will consist of a 5 fish limit, all fish must be 12 inches or larger in order to be weighed in (short/dead fish will be penalized see penalty section below). Boats will all start together from a designated area for the car toppers. The big boats will draw numbers for starting order.

Weigh In: Before the start of each event the Tournament Director for that day will call for a time check and then will announce the weigh in time along with the location at which the weigh in will take place. All weigh ins will take place on shore. It is your responsibility to keep track of time as well as to be on time at the right location to weigh in your bag. Each team should weigh in their biggest fish even if it is not in contention for the lunker prize. In the event of a tie for any place, the tie breaker will be determined by the team with the biggest fish.

Penalties: The following is a list of penalties for specific infractions. Penalty enforcement is at the digression of the Tournament Director.
  • "On time for the weigh in" is defined as being under trolling motor power in the immediate vicinity of the weigh in area. If you are still under trolling motor power in route to the ramp at the designated time of weigh in you are late.
  • A boat arriving late to the weigh in will have 1 lb deducted from their total weight for every minute late, a team arriving 5 minutes or more late (without a valid reason and proper notification to the tournament director) will have their weight disqualified.
  • Please be sure all fish meet the minimum 12" length requirements (measure twice, weigh once).
  • A team weighing in a dead fish will be penalized a ½ lb (.5lbs/8oz) per dead fish.
  • A team attempting to weigh in a short fish will have that fish removed from the bag and be assessed an additional 1 lb penalty. A dead fish CANNOT win the Lunker Prize.

Lets all have fun and tight lines to all!!
