Regarding boat inspections for the tournament. I just called and was told if you plan on launching your boat in the morning you need to have your boat inspected tonight. Otherwise you might be waiting around for the inspector to arrive which is usually 6:30 or 7:00 I believe.

I called this morning and for those of you like me and dont live close, You can take it to any state park to get inspected and Tagged. Taking mine to Cherry creek in just a few. Also found out there are only 34 teams registered. Should be a great time!

The tournament was a good time and in my opinion was run very well. Not sure that a trout tournament in June would be suggested again however. For trout I would like to see it be a spring or better yet a fall tournament. Good time though!
