At a league review meeting last month, we agreed that our league has been very successful for 5 years now and for the most part our league rules have been pretty solid. We did make a few changes for 2017 and added some clarifications. The highlevel list of changes includes the following and are detailed in our updated league rules:
Boater incentive new for 2017
Auto Signup is ok.
Fowler Lake added to the list of lakes.
Family pairings are allowed.
Fishing alone clarifications defined.
Fishing 3 to a boat netter option defined.
Live bait is allowed with a 1-rod restriction
Lure of the week chosen by participants.
NON-lure-of-the-week big fish bonus scoring added for the catcher.
Netter points always 5 points (no bonus points).
Participation points remain the same.
Inch points for catcher & netter remain the same.
Boater and Non-boater suggestion list added.
Scoring Tool: An updated scoring tool has been added to our league webpage that takes into consideration the scoring changes introduced this year. Please check it out to see how the updated scoring works. We may produce a scoring chart for all fish sizes and scenarios so check back on our website. IMPORTANT: If you intend to participate for any given week, you must call, text, or email our League Commissioner, Pat Ryan, by 8:00pm on the Monday prior to the league night for that week and indicate if you will be participating as a "Boater" (using your boat) or a "Non-Boater". Pairings will be announced by 8:00pm on Tuesday. We hope you will give thoughtful consideration to participating with us in this year's spring league even if you're only able to get out and fish with us just once. We have a lot of fun together and it's your participation that adds to the fun. If you have any questions, please contact Pat Ryan using the following contact information:
