Weigh-in and eat chili

4:15pm back at Summit Bait and Tackle. We will ask for a $1 donation at check-in for those that plan on eating. There will be a big pot of chili, which is nice when you've just come off the ice from a full day of fishing! We'll try to provide some soft drinks.

Entry and Categories

It will be a flat $5 to fish in the event This is for entry into the Shootout Series, and enters you into the points race for SHOOTOUT CHAMP 2010.

The side pots will be an additional $5 each. $15 will enter you into all 5 categories. (ex. $5 entry + $15 for all 5 categories = $20 total cost) The placings will be according to fish length. The entire series will be 100% payout, outside of any shelter expenses, of which there aren't likely to be any. The categories are as follows:

1.Bluegill/Redear (8 inch minimum)

2.Crappie (8 inch minimum)

3.Perch (8 inch minimum)

4.Walleye (14 inch minimum)

5.Lunker Pot (20 inch minimum. Qualifying species-- Catfish, Bass) Only pays out 1 place.

Any places that are not paid out are divided amongst the categories and carried forward to be paid out at the next shootout event.

Points Scoring:

Points are scored according to the placings in the various categories. Lunker pot winner takes 2nd place points. 1st place = 10 points, 2nd place = 7 points, 3rd place = 5 points, 4th place = 3 points, 5th place = 1 point. (Example- if icedogg has the 1st and 2nd place perch, and the 2nd place walleye, he has 24 points. If I have the 5th place walleye, the 2nd place crappie, and the 1st place bluegill, I have 18 points.)


In the event that two fish tie for length for placing by two separate anglers then the tie shall be broken by weight. In the event that the fish for placing are the exact same length and weight then the points shall be halved. All other potential tie breakers(the list is endless) can be handled at the event by a vote among the participants.

Catch and Release

We are promoting catch and release this series, so if anyone wants to release a big fish they catch, we will accept a pic at weigh-in with the fish on top of a measuring tape, with a control sign that we will pass out to every participant at check-in. The control sign will change with each event. Don't forget your tape measurer!!

***Anyone practicing catch and release will forfeit any tie-breaking ability.
