About the Tournament
The Big Bass Oil and Gas tournament will be a team format. There will
only 2 persons per team. The entry fee is $80.00 per boat. There will be 5 hourly big bass weigh in times. They will be 9am,
10am, 11am, 12pm and 1pm. There will be a total of 5 fish per boat allowed. During the hourly weigh in the team's fish will count toward the final weigh in. Pay outs will be based on the number
of entries. Estimated pay outs will be 1 per 5 entries. Hourly and final weigh-ins will be held at the Pine
Marina (by the store). The awards ceremony will be held at Abe's Restaurant and Lounge immediately following the final weigh-in.
Abe's is also one of our hourly sponsors this year.
The off limits area will be from the back side of the island around the house boats. Do not fish inside
this area. The marina around the Pine will also be off limits anywhere inside the no wake zone. Any area that is designation
by New Mexico State Parks or Fish and Wildlife as a 'no fishing area' will be off limits. Any contestant receiving a citation
for any reason will be disqualified. Life vests will be required when the big motor is in operation. We expect courteous angler
behavior. This includes normal rules of fishing by bank anglers or anglers on that have anchored and have their trolling motor
out of the water. The expected safe distance in these situations is 50 yards or 150 feet. All boats must have safety equipment
per the New Mexico State Statute for the boat that they are operating. Anyone found operating a boat in an unsafe manner will
also be disqualified. If you have any questions you may contact either Kellie Skelton, President of FCBM at 505-564-3366,
or Sam Walker, Tournament Director of FCBM at 505-334-9252. Thank you.
