W.M.F.L. Official Rules for 2016

Recommended Posts

Ok, after a few issues last season I have made a few rule changes and here they are regarding safety and fairness.

So with that said, here is this seasons new rules.

• Shot gun at 6 am , all boats need to be with in 1/4 mile of the pier heads and pull lines at Noon


. You must be within radio frequencies,  there will be a roll call at 5:50 and another at 11:30. if you do not answer at 11:30 you will be disqualified. If another boat can hear you and confirm it is you that is good.

.• Weight in 1pm at the fish cleaning station

• We will fish predicted seas of 1-3' or less. (or game day call)

.In the event that the event is cut short due to weather the weigh in will be held 45 min after the cancellation and points will be awarded.

• If small craft advisories are in effect we will not fish.

• I would like to encourage reports posted from teams after the events.

Communications encouraged on channel 72. Keep it clean for this is a family oriented event.:thumb:

1. Max of 9 rods in the water at one time.

2. Tourney Fees. 25 dollars for tourney, plus 5 dollars for big fish.

3. Tourney Pay Outs will be on 20 boats or less

a. 1st place 50%

b. 2nd Place 30%

c. 3rd Place 20%

i. 20+ boats = pay down 4 boats 40%,25%,20%, 15%

d. Tie breaker will be biggest fish.

e. Big fish is winner takes all of big fish money.

4. Weigh your best 5 fish with 10 points per fish.

5. Max of 3 person limit per boat may be kept.

6. Money is due at weigh-in. Gentleman's honor to pay. Please pay if you are signed up. If you are having issues please contact me, so that I know not to look for you at the scale.

7. Start out of the same port as the weigh in.

8. If two members are fishing together, than the boat they are fishing out of gets the point.

9. Follow all other State and Federal Laws. The captain is responsible for his crew. Keep it safe.

10. Blow date will be the following day.

11. No charter Capt. and or current first mates.

12. All Capt. must PM me a cell phone number for safety reasons.

You do NOT need to fish all events to partake in this league.

This is going to be a multi port league with it being Holland and South Haven. "Look for date schedule in a few weeks". We will fish 3 dates out of each port and there will be a trophy awarded to the season points champion. The season points champ will be the team with the best three scores at the end of the season regardless of port fished. That being said , the more of these you fish the better chance you have.
