    A friend of mine told me he was wanting to have a line setting tournament. I dont have any expereince in setting lines but I do know how tournaments work so I think that is why he asked me. I was wondering what other peoples response would be to a line setting tournament. What should he set for the entry fee and what should the limit on hooks be. Stuff like that I have no idea. I AM NOT PROMOTING A TOURNAMENT I am just wanting to know how many people would want to do something like that. Thanks for any help. CJ

    Where is he wanting to have it? I would think it needs to be someplace that has quite a bit of river access, since that is where most people set lines. I guess for number of hooks and lines, just use Kansas regulations. If you say only 2 lines, no doubt someone will have 8 lines set anyway. Seams like it might be a hard tournament to police. :confused2:

    It would be hard to police but it would have to be just like a rod and reel tournament on the "good ol boy system".

    My personal opinion, I dont think that is a good idea, at all.
    Settin lines is one thing, but gettin 15-20 boats out on the same water at the same time cant be good.

    Maybe you could have combination line setting and noodleing tournament.

    There are only 2 rivers where that would be legal. Please dont pick the Ark.:wink::smile2:
    The permit to noodle would cost as much as the entry fee.:crazy::smile2:
    Maybe a juggin tournament?
    Atleast they would have to be attended. Plus its only during daylight, and it only lasts a few months.

    OHHHHH maybe it can be a four day tournament like the Bassmaster Classic?

    Noodle the Ark one day, jug Tuttle the next, set lines on melvern the next and then rod and reel Clinton to cap it off! :smile2:

    That's great, but they need a 5th day to snag... I mean jig... catfish out of the the Perry spillway.

    Then add day 6 to Phone Crank up some from the jam at Redmond.

    Back to the idea, I think it would be much harder to run a line event and run it right, to much fudge factor involved in it I think.

    how would it be any different than what goes on in a R&R tourney that dont get caught ?? unless each boat is monitored there is always a chance for foul play

    You can check the number of poles better than you can the number of lines they are going to set or have already set. Also there is the fact of other running your lines or running lines of someone not in the event. That is just a couple real quick things I thought of.

    on R&R i could weigh in fish i caught days before. everyone knows not to use a stringer to keep em cuz of marks. how many cat guys have big tanks ?? :roll_eyes: its just gonna come down to the quality of ppl in the event. give me any system and i will find a loophole or way around to get what i want. if contestants have honor it will be a good event

    Ok JJ you are going to make me say it, so hold on to your hat.


    Its a bad idea becasue we all know what type of people run lines, no way are you going to have an honest event! :smile2::smile2:



    PS that was a joke people, so laugh!
