FLW Striper tournament!!!

FYI, well Bill and I are gonna fish the FLW striper tournament. I know some people don't agree with it, but I like the fact that this is a catch and release tournament and it is a slot limit, 28"-34" fish which puts everybody on an even playing field.

I got a call today from Bill Carson the Tournament director who provided me with some interesting info. AS of right now there are only about 25 boats signed up for the Quincy MA tournament on August 19th, which leaves 150 spots open, so odds of winning in the top 25 spots and going to the finals which is free to enter if you place in the top 25 spots, which is held in Virginia is looking pretty good.

I had a few questions for him, one was how they were doing keeping the fish alive in the other tournaments that they have had. He said the have only had 1 fish not make it in the 1st 2 tournaments so thats pretty good.

I also ask him what they were using to keep the fish in and they are using a keep alive system which is wired with clips to hook up to your battery system, that was specially designed for the tournement. You can either rent the system for $50 for the tournament or purchase the system for $250.

If you enter for the tournament online you save $50 per boat, you can have either 2 man teams or 4 man teams, There is also a $25 fee to become a member of FLW for 1 year.

If you want any more info on the tournament or have any questions shoot me a PM or check it out at. and click on Striper tournament.

Hope to see some of you out there on the water that day!!!!
