Title: ASORI Fishig. First annual bank angler tournament registration!!!
Post by: Asori fishing on February 08, 2016, 06:44:40 PM
It's time fellas. Taking registrations from now until April. If we still have open slots than I will take same day entry for anyone that can't register ahead of time. We will be at Lincoln woods on Saturday may 14th. If you register online it will be $20 and anything after April will be $22 online or $20 same day entry depending if there are open spots on the roster. Rules and regulations will be explained in the group meeting prior to start. The tournament officially starts at 8am and will continue until 4pm. We will have a rented site in the park so there will be a cookout afterwards. Feel free to bring something if you'd like. We are also taking donations to be able to do a little bit extra. There is a donation option on the link I'll post and you can donate as you register. Anything helps and will be greatly appreciated. We hope to see plenty of you there!!!!! Pm for more details and updates

I don't know your experience with tournaments or know you at all. You do know you have to apply for a permit with DEM for any tournament with more than 6 anglers or 3 boats. Just don't want you running into trouble if you didn't know that already. If you do need info on the permitting process, it's easy and we can walk you through it.

Is Lincoln Woods still dealing with LMBV? Im not trying to be a downer, but its something to be aware of. Since the DEM announced it I have avoided there just because of that. I just dont know if this is still an issue there.  As a avid RI anglers we have a responsibility to make sure we do the right thing.

While I was on the phone with fish and wildlife, he explained to me that there they did have lmbv going on and that all anglers are advised to rinse their gear and let dry for 48 hours before using the same gear in a different body of water. I will be holding a meeting, explaining to all participants about the situation.

It turned out great. We had 15 entries. The bite was rough for some people but we did have some people quit due to the bitw being off for most of the day but fish were caught and some very happe people left with a couple hundred in their pocket pkus some lures. Providence bass hunter, please let me know why you thought it wasnt good so that i can improve on it for further events. So far you are the only complaint ive heard. Looking forward to hearing from you soon.

Glad to hear it went well. Anytime anglers are restricted to the bank, it can make it tough for some people if they are in a bad spot.

The whole park was the playing ground. Some people caught some big boys and some just over the minimum but bedding fish arent always easy to fool. The rest of the events should be fish packed battles.

1st place said he caught a fish on a bare treble hook witch was weird to me when asked why he had a empty treble hook in the water he said he was trying to snag a smaller fish but the fish bite the empty hook and turned out to be not a small fish but one big enough to submit. Shouldnt that be a DQ for trying to snag a fish in the first place why just throw a trebel hook at bass on beds if not to snag them ?

Thats why I was curious about this. In a previous thread I mentioned how it would be great to see local tournaments go to an MLF style weigh in system and it was met with immediate backlash because people would cheat. As fun and relaxing as fishing is, when money and competition gets thrown into the mix it brings out the worst in people. I know there are some real die hard anglers who have a great respect for the sport that fish from shore. In fact Im sure just about everyone here started out fishing from shore, including me. I know the intent is to really give the people who cant afford a boat, but still love the sport and opportunity to compete and have some fun. However, my fear in this tournament was that it would really drag some shady people out of the woodwork. Throw money into the mix and you will see the worst of humanity as a few ruin it for the rest.

You know the guy Im taking about. The guy who shows up with a spinning reel on a baitcast rod... he reels the reel upside down. Has a bobber, a sinker, and a EWG hook on a snap swivel. On the hook he has a nightcrawler, a dead shiner and a piece of cheese. They leave trash and a birds nest of fishing line behind at every spot they fish and usually only fish on opening day each year, but they catch their limit of farm raised trout each year so figured thy got this in the bag.

With that said, I love the idea as it gets more people involved. However, I feel as though not everyone deserves to be involved. Any tournament that relies on any sort of honor at all should probably not be open to the general public. It would probably be better to start off with a small group of friends and then branch it out where people from the outside can participate as a co-angler of someone who is already a member. Its never going to be perfect, but if I ever saw someone trying to snag a bedding bass with a treble hook I would drop kick them into the water and break their wally world special over my knee.

1st place took 140 home and was the guy running the event witch made it more fishy but im not upset about it anymore i was upset the day of because i got skunked and sun burned and i have no exp with bass on beds im still new to bass fishing and a sore loser lol but to hear about 1 of the fish being caught on a bare trebble hook did sound right

Im truly sorry that i didnt see this earlier. This is a very big deal!!! It most deff is a dq and i will be investigating this myself this week. If my findings do turn up to be true than he will be suspended from future events, as for the tournament hosts fishing, ive seen plenty club tournaments that the host fishes the event. I agree with brazzy on the honor code. This shouldnt have been public but that is something that i did not expect to happen. I will take this and learn from it and find a way to improve. @ProvidenceBassHunter  please pm me as soon as you get the chance. I would like to personally meet up to discuss exactly what you heard. Again i am sorry for not seeing this earlier.

Its over with now the host for sure spent that 140 he won by now and if he is DQ then that means second place should have gotten all the money cause he is the only other person that caught a fish. He told everyone at the end when we meet up to see who won and to collect prizes he said he caught 3 fish 2 on a spinner bait and 1 on a empty trebble hook. If it was a random person that showed up you could have wrote it off as well thats what happens when its a public event. But for it to be the host of the event that just looks bad man. I was excited for these bank fishing tourneys since i dont have a boat to compete in other ones but this just turned me off.

I'm a bit confused when you guys mention "the host of the event".

Are you referring to the person who organized it and ran it? I thought @Asori fishing was the organizer.

Please clarify this for me.
