Tournament

2 posts in this topic

We have a place on a small lake in the Brainerd area. On most Saturdays there is a "shotgun" start of 8 - 10 bass boats for some sort of informal tourney. How do I find out if these people have a permit to hold such events. I don't mind an occasional tourney but I've seen a few too many dead fish on the shores lately. I will admit I have self interest, but I don't think a small 600 acre lake can endure such pressure without adverse affects. I don't think these guys care if they screw up the lake, they'll just find a new one next year for their games. Can you call TIPS on something like this. Thanks for any help

Hey Gator, You can contact the DNR. From what i have heard and the fishing that i have done, if you have under 25 anglers on the water in the tournament, or entree fees under 25.00, you dont need a permit. But these rules could have changed. The best bet for you is to contact the DNR via phone or email, they will give you all the information you will need. Good Luck
