Boat numbers for launch sequence are determined as entry monies are received and will be posted on the website within 24 hours of NEFAR receiving payment. Mail entries to: NEFAR, 1723 Reid St., Palatka, Fl., 32177, Attn: Savannah Bell. If full entry has not been received by tournament date, you will be expected to pay all remaining entry fees at the ramp in cash to the tournament official assigned to said task. The tournament director or assistant director has the right to reject any tournament entry.

FEES: Entry fee is $120.00 per boat. PAYBACK: The payback to the field will be 80% of the remaining balance. One place will be paid for every seven boats entered.  

TEAM MEMBERS: Each boat is limited to two (2) team members; a Boater and a Partner. A boater may fish alone if he or she so desires.  

QUALIFYING FISH: A limit of fish will be five (5) largemouth black bass with no minimum length.  

PENALTIES: Competitors who present a bass for weigh‐in that is determined to be dead shall accrue a penalty of .250 of a pound or 4 ounces from their total weight. If the dead fish is also the big fish the same penalty will be given towards the big fish pot. Any bass that appears to have been taken unlawfully, mangled, mashed, mauled or snatch hooked will be weighed at the discretion of the tournament director or assistant director. Bass must not be placed on a stringer or on ice at any time. A dead fish may not be culled. At the discretion of the tournament director or assistant director, any dead fish may become the property of the tournament. Competitors who are not in the official check in area, which is determined by the tournament director, within the time allowed, shall be penalized one pound per minute from their big fish, and aggregate total. After fifteen (15) minutes have elapsed, the daily catch will be disqualified. Any team submitting more than five (5) fish to the scale will be penalized by having the entire day’s catch disqualified. All protests must be sworn to in writing and accompanied by a $200 deposit prior to the issuance of awards at any tournament. Deposit maybe refunded pending outcome of polygraph and determination of a rules violation.  

LEGAL METHOD OF TAKING BASS: Only artificial lures may be used. No live bait, prepared bait, cast nets, bread, or baiting pellets, will be permitted on or within tournament boats with the exception of pork stripes, rinds or other baits similar to such baits. Only one (1) casting, spinning, or spin casting rod and reel combination may be used at any one time, others may be in boat, but only one rod per team member can be in use at any one time. The rod may not exceed eight (8) eight feet in overall length. All bass must be caught live and in a conventional sporting manner during tournament hours. Intentional foul hooking of bass will not be permitted. Trolling is not permitted. Dip nets are permitted for their lawful intended use; however, may not exceed 60 inches in length when fully expanded. Any violation of this section will result in immediate disqualification.

SPORTMANSHIP: All persons participating within the tournament must display only the highest form of sportsmanship and fairness. Any intentional actions conducted by any party to include retaliation of any previous action may lead up to and include verbal warning, written warning, disqualification of daily creel, and possibly the revocation of future opportunities to participate in any NEFAR Haven Hospice Charity Bass Tournaments. All disciplinary actions taken by the director are final. All participants are subject to being asked to submit to an examination to determine the truth in any instance the director deems necessary. Refusal to or not making oneself readily available to submit to such examination will result in a disqualification. Such examination may or may not be on the date of the tournament. No protest will be received once the rewards ceremony has commenced.
