    Questions:
    Pre-fishing is open until start of Captains Meeting Friday Night. Anglers must be declare Lake Selection at Captains Meeting.
    – I will be registering for the first time tournament fishing. I don’t understand Angler must declare Lake Selection at Captain Meeting.
    – Am I allowed to register as PRO even though this is my first tournament?

    1. Andrea Heck says:

      Since this is an open roadrunner event, anglers must let us know what lakes they are headed to at the captains meeting. This is strictly a safety concern, if by some chance someone does not return. Yes, you may register in the Pro division even if this is your first event.

      See you on the water!

        Thank you for your response. Is Bastrop lake ok to fish or it has to be in Austin area?

        1. Andrea Heck says:

          As long as it’s a public body of water & launch point and you make it back in time for scoring.

    If I’m a kid can I join

    1. Andrea Heck says:

      Yes! Just make sure you have a parent or guardian approve the “Under 18 Release” Form.

  3. Edgar says:

    The rules say launch time is 6:00 AM. What time can I start to fish ?

    1. Andrea Heck says:

      You can get on the water at 6am and begin fishing then.

      1. Edgar says:

        I wasn’t clear enough with my question so I’ll try again. My fishing spot is a 20 minute paddle from the launch point I’m using. May I launch (as in get in the kayak and start paddling) at 5:40 so that I am on my fishing spot and can actually start fishing at 6:00 ?

        1. Andrea Heck says:

          Edgar, launch time is 6am, so you may get in the water to leave the shore at that time. You can not paddle out early to be at your spot to start fishing at 6am.

  4. Morgan Anthony Mills says:

    If I go to captains meeting on Friday night Can I go straight to the fishing spot Saturday morning?

    1. Andrea Heck says:

      Yes you can, you just can not launch from the shoreline until 6am.
