The event format will be a ‘Fishing Rally’. Each team will meet in the morning at the Scoring Center where a controller will be assigned to each 2 man team. The team will then take a single vehicle and fish any public water they want. The accompanying Controller must measure and record scoring fish. There will be a set time to return to the Scoring Center and failure to return on time results in a points deduction penalty. Planning and execution are critical to winning.
Fish the water you know, the way you know!
