So I've not ever really been a tournament person, mostly just fished for the fun of it near my area. But my stepson is coming down to visit for the summer, and really wants to do a tournament.

I've got a little john-boat with a trolling motor for the local reservoir nearby...

Does anyone know of any "local" (meaning somewhere around Richmond) tournaments or activities that I could take him to to try out a little tournament fishing?

Thanks,

Sippi

@reelcrazy: Do your small lakes bass club have website with upcoming tourny dates? I would mind fishing a few of them.

Don't know if you are interested or if it is too far for you but Lake Anna has open Friday night tourny's and for your boat that would be better due to the fact that most of the larger boats are either comming off the water or soon will be off the water.

The last one I was in it was only 20 bucks and the launch fee of 8 or 9 bucks.

It's a lot of fun if you want to know what a tourny is like and not a whole lot of pressure.
Fishing is my idea of a good lip piercing!

I have also found that when it comes to friends, a good friend will come and bail you out of jail, but best friends will be right there beside you saying d**n that was fun !!!

Watkins Landing has a smallmouth club tournament every other Wednesday.

July 6 and 20.

Starts at 4 or 4:30 PM and goes to 8 or 8:30 PM.

Just show up. The entry fee is very reasonable.

I will ask another person about the tournament and then send you a PM with the details.

Watkins Landing is off Route 711, Robious Road, just past Route 288. Look for the DG&IF sign on 711.

Nice bunch of guys and you fish the upper James which is not tidal. :)

Just to make sure I get back to you, send me a PM as a reminder. ;)

Is competition illegal? Me and my buddy compete every time we go anywhere to see who catches more/bigger fish. How is that any different just because someone is not in the same boat.

Wayne, your not the game warden are you?

Lefty, in Virgnia there are some bodies of water that the Division of Game and Inland Fisheries monitor and you need a permit to fish a tournament.

My B.A.S.S. Region tried to circumvent the permit requirement on Buggs Island and they got caught at the weigh-in. Ticket cost the Region $205 which has me upset as we could have used that money for other events, like Kids Casting.

Wayne P. is asking if your club or group received permission to have a tournament on Briery Creek.

I would research that possibility and then apply for a permit before have a club tournament on Sandy Creek or any other Virginia body of water even though there are very few locations where permits are needed.

Just food for thought. ;)

Yeah, joined up and looking at that. Looks like a fit for things I'd like to do. Just gotta figure out how/where to pay fees.

Sent PM on the upper Historic James River tournament.

If you have a large bass boat I can fill you in on two tournaments on the lower Historic James River but fishing the lower part of the river is dangerous if you are in a small boat. :)
