​Livewell checks for all three D125 lakes will now be a rolling livewell check. Anglers must idle slowly past my boat with lids open to be checked, if you come by with lids closed you will be asked to move to the side and you will go last, if you blast off without me checking your live well or Alex if he is running the tournament you will be disqualified. The following info should be followed. Know your Boat number, livewell checks will be by boat number. At Allatoona myself or Alex will be in our boat at the end of the Jetty at Galts Ferry for livewell check, at Lanier-Little Hall, myself or Alex will be out in front of the courtesy docks on the same side the weigh-in stage and bleachers are at little Hall in our boat for livewell check, so you can go ahead and launch your boat when you arrive and idle around to the courtesy docks , tie off and come up for the safety briefing, raffles tickets and partner pairing, there is parking for the non boaters near the weigh-n and bleachers, they can stage their gear and once they have a partner they can load up right there at the courtesy docks, at Carters myself or Alex will be out by the no wake buoy at the Dam site for live well check. Once your live well is checked you may blast off.

Anglers Notice-Please leave your fish in the livewell until we call for them. They have a better chance of survival in your livewell then in the weigh-in bag waiting in line. Also...if the director or asst director draws a non-boater he will fish until the weigh-in time, this is to be fair to the co-angler and his fishing time. If the Director or asst director do not draw a co-angler he will be in 30 minutes early to set up weigh-in. Thank You
