AFTER the measurement is taken the fish is released unharmed ("not retained"). If you are in a kayak moving to a safer spot to take a measuremen...

Re: New Classic catagory?

Question was asked about catching an oversize fish and then paddling or peddling to the shore to get out and take a picture here is the response: The rule language provides that any fish that is not retained (due to size limit, bag limit, closed season, or other reason) must be released immediately,...

Re: New Classic catagory?

Oh and just to be sure, I am not advocating for a Pro Division(whatever that is). There are guys and gals that are lucky enough to fish the waters a lot and others that only get to fish a few times a month. Is what it is. really just want to add tot he thread

Re: New Classic catagory?

Everyone has a fair shot of getting on stage. And I mean everyone. The Classic should not be handicapped because some feel they have no chance. If I remember correctly there have been kids on stage with the adults. A 10 year old girl beat out seasoned veterans. So my advice is, prepare, prepare, pr...

I had my trout and flounder the 1 st hour, took my son a little longer to get his trout but we spent a long time looking for a bull.. A much rather get a fast cre...

Re: New Classic catagory?

I have always been opposed to allowing bull reds to count. In the beginning we never contemplated having a size limit. What we did do was make the jetties off limits so people wouldn't go out there fishing for bull reds. Back then no one I knew fished for bull reds in the river out of a kayak. Still...

Re: Best Dang Tackle Box at the Classic

Yes, only one per person. The spirit of the prize is to have everyone donate the one go to lure that you use.
