    Smelt Dipping Outing/Shore Fishing Tournament



    Date: Saturday, May 2nd
    Time: 3 p.m. - ???
    Location: Port Huron, MI
    Where: South side of the Waste Water Treatment Plant (see map below)
    Who: All M-S.com Members Welcome!!!
    Menu: Pot Luck
    Fishing Tourney: 3 p.m. - 9 p.m.


    REMINDER: Smelt Harvest Limit - two gallons per angler



    Fishing Tournament Rules

    · Tournament is open to all currently-active M-S.com members.
    · Entry Fee is $1 per rod and must be paid prior to fishing (up to 3 rods). All rods entered in the contest will have a special tag so they are easy to identify.
    · 100% payout to the angler who catches the longest “fish” (which includes any legally caught, in-season trout, salmon or warm water species). In the event of a tie, the angler who caught the first fish will be considered the winner. If there is no winner by 9 p.m., the money will be donated to Michigan-Sportsman.com.

    Note: I know a lot of guys like to get there early to fish so to make it fair to everyone, the official start time of the tourney is 3:00 p.m. If anyone fishing prior to the start time wishes to enter the contest, they must pay the entry fee then re-cast their line(s) at this time. Of course...any fish caught before the official start time does not count in the contest. Late arrivals wishing to fish in the contest are welcome to join the tourney at any time.


    It’s still in the works…but there is a chance that the winner of the fishing contest will also receive a “homemade” trophy/plaque. The winner will be allowed to keep it for a period of one year with the understanding that it will need to be brought back and passed off to the winner of next year’s tourney. Kind of like the Stanley Cup!

    Hey gang, I've got great news! Our very own Michael Wagner sent me a PM and offered to make and donate the plaque for the shore fishing tourney. Mike does some excellent scroll saw work so I'm sure he'll do an awesome job on the plaque!

    BUT remember...the winner can only keep the plaque until next year's tourney, then he or she must hand it off to the new winner. It's mainly for bragging rights! :)

    Thanks again Mike for you kind offer!

    Here's some pics of Mike's work:
