  • All boats must be Coast Guard approved
  • Proof of current liability insurance must be shown before the tournament season begins and randomly at the request of the tournament director
  • No sharing of information in any way is permitted on tournament day
  • A 25 yard distance in the bays and 50 yards outside the bay events must be maintained between all competitors at all times
  • All bait receivers and fuel docks are off-limits, a 50 yard cushion will be imposed
  • Both feet of any competing angler must stay inside the boat at all times unless retrieving a snagged lure. The un-snagged lure may not be free-spooled then placed or thrown back into the water to benefit a team. You may use a restroom and your partner may still fish but must fish from within the boat
  • “Casting” inside a no boat area is considered different than “fishing” inside a no boat area. Re-positioning of bouys or bouy lines in no boat areas to gain casting abilities within the no boat area(s) is not allowed. Casting into or fishing in a “no fishing” or “protected” area will be grounds for disqualification
  • Trolling is not permitted in any event. Cast and retrieve only with rod in hand, rod-holders cannot assist in catching fish at any time
  • No live, dead or prepared bait is allowed (artificial lures only)
  • Only bait tanks or livewells may be used, no stringers or baskets are allowed
  • Every event will maintain a 13 inch minimum length requirement measured on a flat board for all bass retained. The weighmaster will do everything possible to get a questionable fish to reach the minimum 13 inch length requirement
  • Fish that are measured and decided “short” (and witnessed by angler) by the weighmaster will not count in the total number of fish weighed and an additional .50lb weight deduction will be imposed on the total remaining weighed fish
  • No more than 5 fish are allowed on board unless culling.In a team format the other angler may fish while his or her partner is culling with 6 fish on board. If 7 fish are on board, no fishing by either angler is allowed
  • Dead fish will impose a .25lb deduction on the total weight. You may cull a dead fish.
  • Teams accumulating year-end points must fish together “or as one” that may represent the two man team. Substituting partners is not permitted. One person may fish as a team if he or she wishes
  • Life vest(s) and killswitch must be used while vessel is on plane or traveling at a speed of 10 mph or more. Life vests must be in easy reach of any boater if not being worn
  • In the event of boat failure, one team member may escort his/her fish while being transported to the weigh in by another competing team. One team may also tow another team to weigh in
  • Any protest(s) must be brought to the tournament director’s attention within 10 minutes after the final team has weighed in. Protestor(s) must have visible evidence (picture/video) and another competing team as a witness in order for a disqualification to go into effect – unless the tournament director him/her self sees or assistant tournament director along with a witness themselves see the infraction
  • All MLPA enforced areas will be off-limits. All participating SBS teams are responsible for knowing the MLPA closure areas. Commercial Lobster bouys (during the season) that create a line at or near the MLPA line will be used as a reference and positioning at or beyond that line is not allowed with the impression that casts will be made within the MLPA area. Pre and post Lobster season, a 25 yard cushion above and below the closure lines will be in effect at ALL TIMES. Any written tickets or warnings in violation of law issued by DFG, Harbor Patrol or any other authorized agencies for this or any other infraction(s) will result in disqualification.
  • Any violation of the above rules by a team or angler will induce an automatic disqualification, sacrificing all paid entries and point accumulation (as a no-show) for the event in which the violation took place
  • CHANNEL 65 will be the SBS communication channel
