...and don't forget about our 2 optional side-pots, the Total Weight Pot is new this year:

24. Optional 7 Pound Pot - $10 entry per boat/per event. At least 1 person in the boat has to be a member and have fished one tournament in the present year. If the balance is ZERO, any member can enter. If no one catches a 7lb.+ fish, the balance will be carried over to the next tournament. If there is a balance after the last regular tournament, it will be added to the Classic pot. If the fish in question is dead, .5 pounds will be subtracted from its weight. If a team with a fish in question is late to weigh in, they will receive a 1 pound per minute penalty towards the fish in question and will be disqualified after 10 minutes. Tournament director has final determination on the legality of a fish in question.

*25. Optional Total Weight Pot - $20 per team for the year. This is a cumulative weight pot for a team’s best 6 tournament finishes during a given year. Sack weights will be added up and tallied…the team with the highest total weight in their best 6 events will win the pot. Team members must fish together, and/or use their one guest pass each, for weights to be eligible. The teams total weight pot begins after they have paid into this pot, no preceding events will count in their total.

I've had several calls/emails today about this, so here goes. Any boats leaving before safe light, must have (and be operating) the required boat lighting (bow and stern lights) in use during those times. You must ALSO have sufficient lighting (Q-beam) adequate to illuminate the area in front of your boat, at a safe stopping distance from obstacles that may be in your path. THERE WILL BE NO RUNNING ON PAD IN THE DARK, WITHOUT A Q-BEAM LIGHTING YOUR WAY. IF YOU DON'T HAVE THE REQUIRED LIGHTING, YOU MUST WAIT UNTIL SAFE LIGHT (7:00am) TO TAKE-OFF. ANY VIOLATION OF THIS PROCEDURE WILL RESULT IN AN INSTANT DISQUALIFICATION.

Like this, even with proper lighting I have still managed to run over some things. I ran through a stand of pine trees on Caney, that luckily for me they were rotten and I didn't hurt me or my rig. I couldn't imagine what it would be like to run with out the proper lighting. Just remember those docks and piers can surprise you, stumps and trees too.
We have two less fisherman in the Lake St. John area that were running in the dark a few years back. They hit a pier/dock and died on the spot if I remember right. When you fire up the big motor think of these guys and please be safe!........and yes post some pics!

Actually Cross Lake was one of the first lakes in Louisiana to stock Florida strain bass, back in the 70's. It currently has a 14-17" slot, but they're removing the slot sometime this year (around May).
