TightLine Outdoors - Carp Fishing Tournament (Colorado) 2016

Recommended Posts

TightLine Outdoor's, "Don't Bash the Trash" Carp Fishing tournament is a GO for Saturday, July 9th at Lake Arbor in Colorado 2016.

This again took tremendous effort from TLO to even get a permit for the event. Honestly, I thought the event would be cancelled. However, permit in hand, the event is a GO, albeit with very little notice for anyone to be able to attend. FINS-UP to TLO and to the local authorities for again making this happen.

This is a CATCH & RELEASE carp fishing tournament. It is a $40 entry fee per angler (+ $2 booking free). Payout will be dependent on #s of anglers that take part.

This certainly is not your usual carp tournament, it is a total length event, for all carp caught by each angler.

The contest takes place over 2 x 4 hr sessions, during the day, morning and afternoon. There is NO peg draw, there is a quadrant draw. The lake is split into 4 quadrants and you get a draw to see which quadrant you will be fishing in during the morning and the afternoon. Once you know which quadrant you are in it is literally a "scramble" to get there and get setup.

From last years experience, the anglers in each quadrant were very considerate and did not fish on top of each other!

I will be participating again this year, hopefully I can improve on 2015's performance and actually catch a fish ! 

For details of the event, registration details and event specific rules can be found on the TLO website. If you have any questions about the event, you should direct these to TLO. www.tightlineoutdoors.com

I will be there and will endeavor to again advocate for catch & release carp fishing. I appreciate the format of the event isn't what we are all used to, however, I can only stress again, it is  a "CATCH and RELEASE" carp fishing tournament in Colorado, so for that, I raise my coffee mug to the organizers for putting it on at all.

Tight-Lines,

John
