..These rules are for all 2012 Salt Water Bass Anglers tournaments. Each contestant MUST READ, UNDERSTAND, AGREE TO, AND SIGN a 2012 Salt Water Bass waiver prior to entering their first event each year. These rules will remain unchanged during the 2012 season. Separate or additional rules may apply for, “Special Events”. Ignorance of the rules is not a defense for violation of them. Protests must be made in writing within 30 minutes of the official check-in time of the weigh-in. The tournament director may assess a penalty/ disqualification without a written protest.

....The results of any event where protests have been filed or penalties or disqualifications have been assessed shall be considered unofficial until the tournament director of Salt Water Bass Anglers has conducted a review of the incident. This review shall be completed within 72 hours of the event. The decision of the tournament director shall be final in all matters. Adjustments to the results/paybacks, if necessary, shall be made after the final decision. Our objective is to offer you the fairest most consistent handling of any problem. To avoid protests, if you suspect a possible infraction is about to take place - Alert the would-be offender and check the rules!!!


....Any contestant who displays poor sportsmanship, violates these rules or violates the state fishing laws may be disqualified. This includes conduct on and off the water including conduct in and around the host facilities for any event as well as conduct on the message boards within the SWBA website. Misconduct may be deemed as an infraction of our sportsmanship rule and is grounds for disqualification from any event and/or exclusion from membership in Salt Water Bass Anglers.


....Participation is open to all members of Salt Water Bass Anglers. Membership is open to everyone. At least one (1) partner of each team shall be 18 years of age or older. Those anglers under the age of 18 years must have written consent of parent or guardian. High School students must maintain a GPA of at least 2.0. No one under the age of 18 may fish alone. A “Team” consists of two anglers. Teammates must remain the same throughout the series in order to accumulate points for that team. One member of a team may fish alone at any event; however, points will not be awarded if the other partner fishes the same event with a different partner.


....All boats must meet Coast Guard regulations. Each boat must contain all required U.S. Coast Guard safety equipment. Both anglers are required to wear a USCG certified PFD while the boat is on plane, the boat operator must have the boat killswitch lanyard attached while underway. Boats must contain a properly aerated or recirculating live well to maintain alive a team limit catch of fish. Any vessel deemed "unsuitable" by a tournament director would not be allowed to participate in that event. Boat owners will be required to provide proof of liability insurance to Salt Water Bass Anglers before they may compete in any SWBA event.

....A "25 yard rule" is in effect at all times during competition. No contestant's boat may move within 25 yards of another contestant's boat at any time for the purpose of fishing without the consent of all contestants' involved. As a general rule of sportsmanship all anglers should give all others enough room to make a reasonable cast to fish an area. Exception: In the case of fishing docks or piers, no contestant's boat may "tie up," or "protect" more than a single dock at one time regardless of the distance involved.


....In the event of equipment failure or emergency, contestants' boat may be towed to the check-in. If it is necessary to transfer fish to another boat, it must be another contestant's boat. At least one member of the team must accompany the fish to the weigh-in site.


....Official fishing hours will be announced prior to the day of each event. Teams late for the morning check-in deadline will have to check-in on the water after the starting field has been released. All teams must check in with the tournament boat. There will be a 1lb./min penalty, up to 15 minutes, assessed to teams who have not checked into the tournament boat at their appointed flight time. No culling of fish in the host marina or weigh-in area. Fish must be 'bagged and tagged' before you approach the weigh-in dock. Catch bags must be SWBA approved and 'self draining'. Nets and 'wet bags' that are presented to the weighmaster will not be weighed.


.....50 lbs. will be deducted from the total bag weight for each dead fish presented for weigh-in, this also means that the .50 lb. penalty will apply to all fish submitted as 'Big Fish'. The tournament director or a designee will make all judgments of fish mortality. No Team shall possess more than five (5) fish at any time except when culling. Both anglers must stop fishing when culling. Culling of dead fish is prohibited and will result in disqualification.


....Off limits time periods in place for all events this year and will be in effect from Monday-Saturday prior to the event, within the designated boundaries.

Bass will be measured lying down, mouth closed / tail fanned, on a FLAT board. Tail may be swung but must remain fanned.
