ATC Rules

Recommended Posts

All anglers are required to have a VALID Texas fishing License ; you may purchase them by phone at (800)895-4248. Or online at:http://www.tpwd.state.tx.us/
Licenses are also sold at Wal-Mart, Academy, and other sporting goods stores.
If you wsould like to fish prior to the tournament we can recommend areas that will be permitted. Austin Lake has a campground (Emma Long) and it is a very similar type of venue (see rules). there are some growths of Hydrilla and Milfoil, so beware! Another Venue is Decker Lake, known for Large Buffs.



Rules:
-No pre-fishing in Ladybird Lake (Town Lake)from Sunday through the start of the event. Anyone seen not complying with this will disqualify his or her team from the competition and the entry fee will not be refunded. All participants are allowed to plumb and research the lake; this includes the use of SMART CASTS.

-A representative of each team MUST be present at the peg draw, if one is not present that peg will be forfeited and the team will be issued whatever peg is left.

-The Peg Drawn is the Peg you Must fish!

-All of the city park rules must be observed.

-Only Cyprinus Carpio count for total weight and big fish (no buffalo, grass carp, Old tires, tennis shoes, dead anglers,lousy team members, etc.)

-ONCE AGAIN, a special award for the biggest Buffalo (any variety) will be presented.

-Each two-person team may fish anywhere within half the distance of opposing team pegs, please use common sense in this regard, (this means the casting distance, you may not physically walk to and fish in the other teams peg !) including pegs on the other side of the lake (you must however be in the same Zip Code & County). Please refer any questions you have about boundaries to one of the tournament directors.

-Each team MUST have 1 net that provides a safe way to land fish. Nylon knotted nets will not be allowed.
-Each team MUST have a Scale that has been checked and calibrated at the Corn Boil for the event. We will calibrate with 5 pounds of water in a bucket, check your scales before you get there !
-Each team MUST have a well-padded unhooking mat and weigh sling.
-Each team MUST have a tape measure , all fish are to be measured and recorded on the score cards. We do this to assist Parks & Wildlife.
-A max of 6 rods in the water (having hooks on them) per team at any ONE time.!
-SPOD rods and Marker rods are permitted they must not have hooks on them!
-Opposing teams will weigh and record captures,,,remote locations will have a Steward to do this
-One hook per rod and no treble hooks or any multi-pronged hooks allowed.
-Fish must be weighed, measured, and then verified by an opposing team member or a steward. Please return fish to the water promptly, after taking your photo(s) releases should be verified by the opposing team member or Marshal. --Only one fish per sack, if necessary
-All Scorecards MUST be turned in, the scorecards have the opposing teams verification on them,,,these must be submitted at the end of each day irrespective of whether you caught or not if the scorecard is NOT turned in at end of the days angling captures WILL NOT COUNT !! turn them in to one of the tournament directors (Ashleigh, Kevin or Chad)
-Scorecards not turned in will result in DISQUALIFICATION
-Boats will not be allowed during the event, this includes Kayaks, Row boats,Submarines, and bait boats.
-If a fish is hooked before the competition ends there will be a 15-minute extension time limit allowed to land the fish.
-Any foul hooked fish will not count; all captures must be hooked within one inch of the mouth.
-CAG and non CAG members may attend, please see registration form for details and fees for each category.

Any way to change this to "Up to 25 yds either side of actual peg is where anglers must fish or bait from" but you can cast half way to other pegs.

Not
