  • One rock bass will be the bonus "kicker" fish and added to your total weight (in any division, including mixed bag) at weigh-in.

  • Plaques will be awarded for the top three in each division, plus Ugliest Fish, Biggest Bass, and Biggest Walleye.

  • Ties will be settled by a coin toss.
  • Weigh-in scales open at 1:00pm, and teams may only weigh their fish once.
