Due to safe lighting and weather awareness- we encourage anglers to stay off the water until the very last-minute pre-launch and we will change official GO time to 645am.  No one can leave the launch until 645.

Fishing will begin at 7am.  Any timestamps before 7am, the fish and angler will Be DQd from day 2.

Fishing until 3pm and a HARD submission deadline of 330pm.

I will be sending an awards ceremony text invite to the anglers in the top 14.  Hopefully we can start awards between 445 and 5pm at the event HQ.

There is a predicted chance of thunderstorms tomorrow in areas and some may be severe at times- We ask anglers make the best decision for them and their area to be safe as needed- This may be launching later, going to a different area, getting off the water at times, etc.  You make the call on or off the water tomorrow to put yourself in the safest position if conditions get sketchy.  Safety is most important.

We can’t control or predict the weather, but you all can control what situation you put yourself into based on the conditions you are faced with.

Please remember to take clear and dry pictures. Keep your fishes mouth closed. Take Plenty of pictures.  Check your manage catch for any discrepancies before the 330 deadline.

For any fish to count, you must write TS2  on your ID!

Thank you all for your support and we hope to see you at awards and at events in the near future!

Be safe and have fun tomorrow!
