Can we clear up, or fix, the confusion regarding the whole "hook inside the mouth" issue? FLW says it's OK, BASS says it's not. Can we go back to applying this snagging rule to bed/site fish only? Anglers are not intentionally SNAGGING bass with crank baits or topwaters.

Tom, it was nice chatting with you and many others this evening. There were some good issues raised and addressed.

Guys, what's really cool is that the DFG folks we deal with up here regarding tournaments are good guys who were listening to what we had to say. These guys are anglers like us which really helps them understand the issues raised instead of staring at us like a deer in the headlights. They honestly care about our fisheries and are open minded to new ideas. They were also realistic about what could and probably couldn't be done.

There were also some good conversations about the care of fish by the tournament org's and their anglers which will hopefully lead to the sharing of best practices amongst the org's. The best scenario, in my opinion, would be to self regulate ourselves as best as possible in order to avoid further need for stringent regulations being imposed upon us.

Great meeting.. Good to see everyone there!!

By the way it can still be seen from the link above. Check it out.

I think there are a number of things we learned at the meeting... but, the one thing that stands out most to me is that the DFG staff is here to help us, educate us and are not against fishing, they too are anglers!

Doubt they will provide a release boat Jonny! Nice try. but That will cost them money. That should be the tourneys Job. But either way it will cost somebody..... prolly us fisherman in the end.

They answered that question in the video.

Release boats would be cool - but, they'd need 10 of them - and 10 trucks to pull them. There are release boats for hire. I know Calville Bay did some cool stuff in order to get a release boat down there. I think it couldn't hurt for Chuck @Russo's to give Randy Roundtree at Calville a call. Randy is a great guy and would tell Chuck what they did in order to be able to have a release boat for very little cost. I know - but, not well enough to help duplicate it.

Don't get me wrong Chuck, The Russo's staff, Gene and the Hook Staff do an amazing job supporting tournaments at the Delta - they are 2nd to NONE and I have a pretty good idea because I've run events on 16 different lakes this year alone!!!!

I made contact with Calville bay three years ago. The boat is owned by Nevada DFG and Shimano. I tried to buy it back them because they were not using it at the time.
The only way they could release it was by a bid and they weren't ready to do that at the time.
