About This Division

Welcome To North Carolina Piedmont Division 


**** New for 2021****NC Piedmont will be conducting 6 Tournaments with the opportunity to drop your lowest finish. So if you have a conflict on one date or just bomb on one event you could still win the overall Points. We will not have a foothills division in 2021 so we will be fishing Hickory and Norman along with our four lakes Badin, Tillery, High Rock and TuckerTown.


Fishers of Men NC Piedmont TEAM Division is an Off-Limits with Friday Practice Division. This means that the tournament water to be fished goes Off-Limits at 12:01 a.m. on the Monday morning before the tournament, and remains Off-Limits until Safelight the Friday before the tournament. All competitors must be off of the water on Friday evening in time to attend the Friday night 

I will post on the details of each tournament by what time to have your boat in the water. You will not need to check in with me before you put your boat in the water. I will check live wells, running lights, kill switches and life jackets during blast off. We will have a short devotion and prayer before blast off. There will not be a meeting or meal at our events this season. All Anglers fishing will get the 50 bonus points for attending the meeting.


There will be a 5 fish per team limit. All culling must be done at the time the 6th fish is caught. You cannot have more than 5 fish in your live well at any time except for a dead fish that is not included in your limit.

The penalty for having more than a limit in your live well is 1 lb.

The size limit for our tournaments will be 14 inches.

The penalty for a short fish is 1 lb.

The penalty for a dead fish is 1/4 lb. (.25 lb.)


New guide lines for our tournaments:

1.  Everyone should maintain 6’ distance from others and avoid handshakes throughout the day.

2.  At weigh in we will have two tanks set up and spaced apart for social distancing of 6’.

Only two people per tank one at each end this will keep you 6’ apart. Only one team member to bring fish to tanks and scales.

3.  We will not be handing out the weigh slips. However we will have those for any issues. Weighs will be record on the board.

4.  We will have approximately 10 boats per flight. Please trailer out unless you came by water. We will not allow more than five teams at the weigh in tanks and scales at any time. 

5.  We will have  face protection at the scales if you need one and I encourage the person coming to the scales to wear one.
