About This Division

Fishers of Men has implemented some guidelines during the reopening phase of each state. Because Lake Springfield is still open we will be holding our first event April 24 and these guidelines while temporary must be adhered to in order for us to have our 2021 season. The following are the temporary guidelines: 
1. All registration/memberships will need to be done on-line or by mail, No Entries will be received at the ramp. 
2. Depending on guidelines we may or may not conduct a pre-tournament meeting.
3. Depending on guidelines we may or may not have any meals or provide food or drinks at the events.
4. We will award meeting points to all competitors.
5. All competitors when you arrive at the ramp should a maintain 6’ distance from others and avoid handshakes throughout the day.
6. We are waiving all late fees.
7. We will have an “on the water” devotional before the tournament
10. (Weigh in procedure)
As teams come back and check in, you will trailer your boat, then follow single file along the perimeter of the parking lot until you reach the weigh in station. We will weigh in one team at a time. This keeps the fish aerated in the Livewell.
11. If you feel that it would be safer we can mail out checks but we will announce the winners and hand out checks and trophies for 1st Place and Big Bass. 
12. During the awarding of the prize money maintain a 6’ social distance so we are all standing around together.
