King Of The Lake Amateur Division

When discussing this, one thing was evident.   In the past there has been many one day tournaments of this style and although it has they have been great for some they dont survive for some reason or another.  A lot of comments that I have heard is the advatages for some guys over others.  Charter guys fishing the amateur, bigger boats are not on same playing field, bigger boats normally have autopilot (not to say small boats don't) ect..  I just thought it would make the weather decision more fair and would really level off the playing field.  It also stops charter and guys that fish pro tourneys from sandbagging with their big rigs.

Hope this makes sense

Hawg - No there isn't any cut offs to number of teams.  We hope to get 50
wouldn't that be great - 70 pros and 50 ams.  Marina would love us lol!!  Seriously though the more the marrier.  I've wanted to do this for a while and I think its time to try it.  Support it and this can be a great avenue for guys to start or somewhere with less pressure.

Yvan you just posted in a separate thread that there are 17 amateur spots registered with 13 available???  Are you now capping the field for Ams at 30 boats?

Has anyone else received the tournament itinerary ? I never got the return e-mail after registration.
Talk is cheap, where's the photo to prove it?

Hello Gentlemen,
I was pleased with the amount of interest last yr in this new division and I thought it went well.  I am also excited to bring it back for 2014.  The same format will be used!!  The dates for these events are as follows
April 26, 2014 (blow day is April 27)
August 30, 2014 (blow day is 31)

Will have website updated shortly and registration will open at that time. 
Hope to see you there!
Yvan
