1. Tournament O-Fish-L’s will start boat checks at 5:30 a.m. Boats will be able to leave the harbor after they
are checked. Make sure your tournament sticker is on your antenna or visible from all directions before you
leave the harbor. We will have enough O-Fish-L’s to check your vessels and sign your card quickly. Once your
vessel is checked proceed to the committee’s destination.
2. You must follow DNR fishing rules and regulations. Tournament rule 12 rod max.
3. Total Weight: ONLY YOUR MDNR 2 Man Limit. (salmon/trout species only)
4. All boats must be back inside the harbor by 2:00 p.m. and notify O-Fish-L’s on Channel 68. You will be
disqualified if your vessel did not cross from either the North or South gaps. We will have volunteers
stationed at the gaps for the 2:00 p.m. deadline. (*deadline exceptions will be approved only by tournament
officials for emergencies only). If you have no intention of returning to the docks, please let tournament
O-Fish-L’s know by using Channel 68 or call (989) 550-9227
5. Once in the harbor, contact tournament O-Fish-L’s on Channel 68. Give us your vessel’s name to verify you
are in the harbor. Your fish to be weighed must be in a closed cooler (no tails hanging out). Tournament
O-Fish-L’s will verify your catch total, seal and tag your cooler at your slip or launch ramp. Please make sure
you TAG your biggest fish with the provided zip tie. NO OPEN BAGS OF ICE. If you have cubed ice, make
sure the bag is not opened. Loose ice will result in disqualification. NO WATER. Must be drained before you
go on stage. Proceed with your cooler after you have been checked and taped to the destination discussed in
the captains meeting.

7. In case of high winds or thunderstorms & small craft advisory the tournament committee will keep you
informed as to when or if we will get started. A blow date will be the next day, if we cannot get at least 3
hours of fishing either day we will cancel the event. Once the tournament starts, it is the discretion of the
captain & crew if they want to return to the harbor earlier. If the tournament of the blow day is cancelled due
to weather conditions you will receive 100% of your entry fee back. A 10% donation to the Thumb Area
Steelheaders is asked, but not mandatory.
