I hear that the DNR is really going to try and crackdown on Bass tourney being held without a DNR permit this season. Even though I’m normally against any form of government control, I myself think its a great idea. I have nothing against bass tourneys but think its a great idea to know when and where they are being held. Nothing worse than showing up at a lake for a fun morning of fun fishing only to find the landing full with tourney boats. This happened far to often last summer and at some lake you would never think there would be a bass tourney at. With the # of tourneys being held ( including week night and High School ) the whole tourney thing is getting way BIG. The DNR Created this link to show the date and locations of all tourneys that have pulled a tourney permit:
Here is also a link to what tourneys require a DNR permit:
I’m curious to what all your thoughts are on Tourneys requiring a permit and the crackdown they are going to have on them this summer.
