Fishing in Louisiana

Anybody Interested?

Been doing a lot of thinking lately about all you guys and how much fun an actual fishing tournament would be. if there is one put on by the sportsman, i am unaware of it.

If i or a volunteer were able and had the time to organize something in the warmer months in grand isle, would anyone be interested in that?

I dont know about prize money and all of that stuff. A lot of details would need to be worked out, but its just a thought.


I chose grand isle because i think that would be the funnest place IMO.

Anybody got any input or ideas to throw around?

'Rules on Commotion and Confusion'

Ricky...if it happens, get in touch...we promoted 4 or 5 small ones w/less than 15 boats(and will never do it again)...all I can do is 'suggest' a few 'ways and means' things for whatever it's worth...cheers to'ya

rules, rules, rules

Just be very specific with rules. You have to cover every aspect of fishing, weighing, time limits, fishing boundaries, launching.



Do not assume any thing.



We put one on through work. Something new comes up every year that we miss.



Its best to put in on a few times with a bunch of friends so you can build your rules and regulations, then you can expand.



Just remember once you start dealing with money you usually have to deal with cheaters. Really nothing you can do but be specific in the rules.

In

I suggested a tournament for last weekend, but no one could agree on rules. I don't have the time or the patience to set one up for this group. Too many egos here.

I would want it to be a legit thing.



I think it would be fun under the right circumstances and conditions. Pending on how many people like the idea, i may go talk to the Vegas' at Bridgeside and see what they would think about it, and if they would help us out. They have tournaments all the time, so they could suggest some things to make things go smoothly.

Ricky

Sorry I thought this tourney was for the loudmouths....wait am I considered one of them????



I'm down for the tourney! With my freedom with work i could help organize it. I would prefer we raise money for a good charity! Also a 'special' prize for some that make this site miserable. Something like ban from posting for a year or fish with JLS for a weekend!



JLS- remember just kidding! When my back is healed I'll show you some spots and no it won't be the aquarium!

not sure

Not too sure how this would work out. Look at the 2 bickering now like catholic schoolgirls who wore the same dress to prom. Imagine them together mixed in with some alcohol!

On second thought sure put me down. This will be better than the daytime soaps!

Unfortunately, my earlier comment got deleted. Please be careful with who you deal with here, especially if there is money involved.

Actual?

What do you mean by actual fishing tournament? There is a tournament every weekend in the summer in Cypremort point. Are these not actual tournaments? I know you said Grand Isle, but if tournaments in V Bay turn out lots of boats week in and week out, why can't Grand Isle?
