What do the rules mean by "No hole sitting will be permitted by a competitor or non-competitor boat during the tournament".

Not quite sure I understand that... so if I find a hole filled with crappie, I can't just sit on it and keep catching?

:drink In the past ... teams will pair up and save spots for the team they want to do well ... or guys not in the tournament will camp on prime areas and wait for their team of choice to arrive and then move so that select team has prime areas to fish

I haven't been on H for a few years now. I remember an off limit zone, noone can pass the rope just past an island. Closing off a big portion of the lake.Maybe it was no-motor?

Is that still in effect? Or is it open now. I was told that it was off-limits because it was a working cooling lake, but now the plant has closed.

anyone touch on this for me.Thanks.

No I'm not in. I'm guiding two guys that day. They have booked a back to back trip long before this was announced. They wanted 1 day crappie and 1 day eyes. Well I guess sunday will be for eyes. Hehehe

9 Boats I think - and of course Gary Grunauer won it by a few pounds I think, pretty easy money bet there. Not sure anyone knows crappie out there like Gary. He then gave the check back for the food pantry so class act. Nice job Gary hopefully if they do this again I won't have conflict and can come in second
