Wmfl rules for 2017

After a short pole with all the teams that showed up for the last event last season , we have decided not to make any rule changes  for the 2017 season. Other than to eliminate the events out of South Haven and make them all out of the port of Holland.

With that said here are our rules to play by for this season.

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


. There will be a 5:50 am roll call from the peir heads , if you do not respond your name will be removed from the event for this day. If you plan on being late , please call my cell phone.

.• 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 based 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. All teams must start from the port of Holland.

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.
