« on: May 01, 2012, 12:35:03 PM »

The SSFA Marquette Spring Shootout will be held Saturday, May 12, 2012

You must come to the Marquette Dock Association Parking Lot (next to Thills Fish House, look for the SSFA trailer) on Friday, May 11th between the hours of 5 pm and 9 pm to register your team and pick up a rule sheet.  At least one member from your team must stop by Friday night to get a rule sheet and fill out an entry form for your team.

  • Start time will be 6 am Saturday, May 12th
  • You can leave from the Upper Harbor or Lower Harbor (marinas or launches) before 6 am
  • ON YOUR HONOR no fishing lines go in the water until 6 am. Otter boats may be deployed before 6 am
  • There will be an announcement on VHF channel 68 at 6 am to start the tournament and an announcement on VHF channel 68 at 2 pm to stop the tournament
  • You can fish until just before 2 pm, pulling your last line out by 2 pm YOUR LAST LINE MUST BE OUT OF THE WATER BY 2 pm
  • Weigh in at the Dock Association Parking Lot at 3 pm
  • There will be two classes, Salmon and Trout; Steelhead and Browns will be entered into the trout class.  All teams are entered into both classes
  • Your heaviest 3 Salmon and heaviest 3 Trout will be your final weight for each class.  It is up to each team to decide which three fish to enter into each class
  • Cash prizes will also be awarded for Biggest Fish (by weight) and Mystery Fish.  Mystery fish prize will be awarded to the person who catches the fish with a weight (under 10 lbs) that is closest (above or below) to a randomly selected weight during weigh in
  • Entry fee is $25 per person
  • 100% Payback!
  • Tournament waters are inside of a line extending North from Laughing Whitefish Point, and East from Big Bay
  • All MDNR and USCG rules and regulations apply and supersede any SSFA rule during the tournament

  • All members of a team must fish in the same boat
  • ALL fish MUST be taken within the tournament waters as described above
  • Steelhead, Brown Trout, and Coasters may ONLY be used in the TROUT class.  A Salmon is a Salmon, a Trout is a Trout

*Posting of a small craft advisory by the National Weather Service will result in the tournament being rescheduled for Saturday, May 19th.  Anyone not wishing to fish on the alternate date will receive a full refund of their entry fee.  If the weather turns bad during the tournament, SSFA officials have the right to cancel the tournament at any time.  If at least 3 hours have been fished, the tournament will be considered complete.

*SSFA sweatshirts and t-shirts will be available for purchase during sign up on Friday night.  You may also pick up an SSFA membership form during sign up on Friday night if you have not already become a member.

The numbers are in!  Thirty three teams signed up tonight!  That's a 65% increase over last year's Spring Shootout.  Based on the entries, the payouts will be as follows:

1st Trout - $600
2nd Trout - $400
3rd Trout - $200

1st Salmon - $600
2nd Salmon - $400
3rd Salmon - $200

Biggest Fish - $100
Mystery Fish - $100

Remember, this is an ON YOUR HONOR tournament.  No fishing lines in the water until 6 am. Lines out by 2 pm sharp.  Weigh in is at 3 pm.  You do not have to bring your fish in by boat, just be at the dock (same place you signed up at) by 3 pm for weigh in. 

Good luck everyone!!
