The early bird registration fee for the complete series, including the classic, from the World of the Boat series is $ 950. If this amount is paid before March 15th, this will entitle you to a pre-draw of the starting positions. For those who will pay $ 950 after this date, must do so in full before June 1st. If the fees are not paid in full by this date, the team will be considered Walk-On and additional fees will be added for each event. The draw will be done at Monde du Bateau (date to be determined). See the Walk-On section for more details.
A `Walk-on` team must have fished with the same two fishermen to be eligible for the classic. They must have fished a minimum of three tournaments and will have to pay for the 4 tournaments in addition to the walk-on registration for the classic, that is to say 1200 $.
The registration fee for the walk-ons will be $ 50 more than the regular member and goes as follows: June 16 tournament ($ 225), July 14 tournament ($ 225), July 15 tournament ($ 225) ), August 11 tournament ($ 225) and the September 1-2 classic ($ 300). The amounts included the price for the biggest bass of the day.
Only artificial lures, including pork rind, can be used during events.
The species eligible for the tournaments are largemouth bass and smallmouth bass. A maximum of 5 bass players per tournament. Only 5 bass can be in the boat at any time. Any team caught red-handed will be disqualified.
An 8 ounce penalty will be imposed for each dead fish during weighing. A dead fish is not eligible for the prize of the biggest catch. A penalty of 1 pounds per minute will be imposed for the delay, with a maximum of 5 minutes otherwise the team will be disqualified. Any team that submits a fish or fish less than 12 inches (measurements made from the tip of the nose to the end of the tail) will see these fish being disqualified for weighing and will also have to put back in the water the biggest fish in the bag at the water. If 2 fish are less than 12 inches then these two bass are released and the 2 largest of the bag.
Boat and engine
Every boat must be equipped with a working livewell. All competitors must wear an approved flotation device when the boat is propelled by the initial engine. All boats must be equipped with a contact switch that the driver must carry when the boat is in motion.
Each boat must be insured and the team must be able to provide proof of insurance upon request of the tournament's executive committee.
All boats must be checked by an official before each tournament. If the boat is not inspected, the team will be refused participation in the tournament. When returning to the platform after each tournament, it is the responsibility of the team to mention it to the official upon arrival. The directors of the Monde du Bateau series will be able to check participants' fishponds at any time on or off the water during an event.
Bodies if water for the events
Only waters that are navigable by boat from the tournament's administrative center can be fished during a tournament. It is forbidden to use locks. If the waterbody contains areas that are not accessible for the safety of the boats, (eg distance from the dams, areas prohibited because of rapids, etc.) and the team does not respect these limits, they will be disqualified.
Prizes and equality
The amount of prizes awarded at each event will be determined according to the number of teams participating in the series. If there is a tie for one position, the money from the next position will be split between the teams that have equal weight for the same position.
Team of the year
The cumulative weight of fish per team for the 4 qualification events will determine the winners. Only those who will pay the series before June 1st will be eligible for the team of the year.
Each member of the team must be sporty, courteous, safe and secure. No alcoholic beverages will be tolerated during tournament hours. Competitors must comply with the provincial laws and regulations of this association.
Competitors who want to post a complaint must appear before the tournament director and a member of the executive (Christian Gervais, Eric Fontaine and Stéphane Ranger) before weighing their fish. The witness (s) must justify that a tournament rule violation or provincial law has been committed.
Interpretation of regulations
All decisions rendered by the Steering Committee of the series are final and without recourse. The committee has the right to appoint an observer at any given time.
Distance between the boats
It is strictly forbidden to fish within 25 feet of another boat that participates in the tournament, during tournament hours under pain of being disqualified.
A "family" team, i.e. a team composed of a father, a mother, a son or a daughter who will be registered for the season may change partners (immediate family member) without penalty. This clause is intended to promote succession. Example, a dad registers with three sons. He can fish with a different son at each tournament and be eligible for the classic with one of the sons.
Substitution for a regular member: A team may replace a fisherman only once during the regular season and not for the Classic.
No minimum number of tournaments to fish for a team that paid the entire season before June 1st.
