Killer put me down for 2Q + 1.

Entry fee? Depending on how the prize awards are set. i.e. gear, giftcards, money.

So dont everyone give up different stuff. If killer has a decent set of donated items them money can spots could be paid, if not, money entry fees could be used for prizes and/or money pay outs.

Id say $20 a head.

fishkiller
08-17-2005, 04:52 AM
8)Hey guys Im throwin this out cause there are alot of non boat owners out there that want to fish the derby. Please if you own a boat try to take 1 hitchhiker aboard, I know not everyone has big boats ,but they are sniffers to and they contribute to the boards so open yer boat to them and make new friends.remmember the more entrenants the better.Im starting a list of hitch hikers who wanna fish the derby. 8)

08-17-2005, 06:49 AM
If this is gona be a good ol sniffer touney, I think all sniffers should fish, also the Beer has to stay or most of these guys will stay home..as far as prizes go nothings better than CASH!!!

Then you can hand out some gear or whatever after CASH!!!

I think the dates sound fine, a twenty dollar entry fee is not to much to ask and I think a portion of all fees should be donated to this site to keep er going,,

I'll take 2-3 hitchers. I'll talk to Debrah and see if she will put the sniffer stamp on it, that will make it easier to get tackle shops to donate some goodies. ;D
Killer call me on the cell later as I'll be on my way to Oregon to fish the Rogue and see my mom.

Plus maybe we could get them to put a banner on the board to help promote the derby,, heck why not toot our own horn

So far, Antioch Bridge to Benicia Bridge. How far up the Sacto? Broad Slough? Powerlines?

If the TWO of YOU GUYS ain't numbers 1 and 2, there gonna be some serious tail draggin! This thing seems to bringin us all out of the woodwork, not just for the cash, but also some glorious braggin rights! Imagine toppin Killer or SS in a Sniffer sturgy derby? A guy could ride that wave for a while! I should fish my brother's 14' Klamath just to make it interesting! LOL.. Lookin forward to this one! If it's the 10th-11th, I'm in! FISH ON!

08-17-2005, 12:08 PM
On a $20 pot what if it was split 3 ways? $10 for the pot, $5 for the sniffer, and $5 for the freedom's angels foundation. It is for the soldiers of the US Forces. Check out the info: http://www.tnugent.com/freedomangels.shtml

Just an idea.

Hogsbro
08-17-2005, 12:12 PM
Does the heaviest legal fish win the pot, or are you planning on spinning the wheel?

2QUARTSLOW
08-17-2005, 12:23 PM
So many options.

Thing about it. Biggest = Length, Heaviest = Weight, or Target Length = After everyone is in pull a length out a hat.

Like I said so many options.

Also a donation to the boards is a good idea.

sunracer1957
08-17-2005, 12:31 PM
Well it really isn't braggin rights if you catch a fish to get pulled out of a hat, Biggest is Biggest no matter how you look at it!!

Hard to brag if you catch a 48"er and beat a guy who caught a 72" 90lb hog ::)

smithstation
08-17-2005, 12:39 PM
Heaviest fish takes 60%, second takes 25%, and smallest legal fish takes 15%. After the Sniffer gets their cut?

This may be the same thing, but IMO the big winner should be the heaviest legal fish. I only say this because I've seen 66 inchers that were hevier than 72 inchers.

8)Ok guys as far as donations go , the entry fee is 2o dollars per person.The donation to the sniffer is going to be 2.50 per entry fee..All entries must be recieved by the 14th . late registration is 30 dollars and Pm me for arrangements. To win you need the largest legal fish incase of a tie i go to weight.There may also be a prize for largest striper brought in.As of know it will be a cash payout and raffle prizes. What do you guys think about a BBQ of hotdogs chips and sodas at raffle time. 8)

8)I see the need for a boundry on the sac due to Donzi so this one is easy we all now the marker. Boundries are from the benieca bridge to antioch bridge on san juaqin and channel marker 14 on the sac , monty slough and and all connecting sloughs in monty.Thats alot of water guys. dont be late for weigh in. Remmember your fish must be alive or face a size and weight penalty.Stripersare included in penalties . You can weigh any fish during baitshop hours during derby got a big one get it there. ;) ;D ;D :o 8)

Ahhh.. yes.. thanks for the Sac inclusion! Buoy 14 is good enough for me! We all know that there aren't any big sturgies up that far anyways, right? That weekend isn't the greatest due to family things, but it is what it is.. I'll be there if I can! As for the prizes, I think it's got to go to biggest fish.. I guess with the exception of oversize? Sure won't be me, but someone might! FISH ON!

I really want in on this, but I havent gotten into sturgeon fishing. I know the gear, etc required. Everything in that area, I got. I need to know a locale that I can practice from shore that isnt dangerous for an experienced angler. I dont want to travel to the delta, so if there is a place on the sac in the sacramento area i can practice on, please let me know.

Thanks guys,

Bassassin, I appreciate the though there for sure! The following weekend (24th/25th) would be much more convenient for me. I do realize, however, that if we try and schedule this to mesh with everyone's personal schedule it won't ever happen. I've only made one Sniffer get together, Melones Fest, and I'd sure hate to miss this one. I've always been a Delta guy, though mostly for stripers, and I owe Killer BIG TIME for turning me onto the world of sturgy fishin. Never again will I give my rod tip just the casual glance with the clicker on. In this world, IT IS WHAT IT IS.. and if it works out, great. If not, so spins the world anyways. I would sure like to meet and fish with you guys though! With that said, I'll leave it with a warm and fuzzy heartfelt holler of "FISH ON!"

Don't get down and out yet, if Dback isn't up and running by Derby time I'm sure one of the other guys will help you out, this is a great bunch of guys and we all watch over each other on the water, most of us have Radios and cell phones if theres any problems, and all these guys know the Delta and always try to play it safe.. it's all about having fun and safty comes fisrt,, we'll try to get those who want to go who don't have boats matched up with someone ;)

The third weekend in Sept. is opening day of deer season in a lot of areas, so, the following weekend would probably be the best. And 916 and Donzi could make it. Dont know how many deer hunters there are out there but it may keep a few guys out.... Just chum for thought...

i'll talk to my mom about it and maybe if she talks to you guys...I might be able to get in. Nothin beats raisin money for the sniffer. Actually, I should probably talk to my dad about it. He's usually more lenient with this kind of stuff. It is fishing after all and he knows all too well how much he and I both love to do it. With the dough on the line here, maybe I might be able to sway him by giving 10 percent to the mom and dad fund (if I win). ;D ;D ;D


Diamondback70, Thanks a bunch for the encouragement. I appreciate it...and that whole talking to the parents suggestion. I'll hit you up with their number if its okay with them.

You're gonna be in for a ride, Eddie. You think that Bass at Amador was tough? Imagine that fish fighting times 1,000 and ripping current on top of it. WHOO.

At any rate, it's good to see you're wanting to join the sniffer crew of Sturgeon hunters. We're a good bunch to learn from.

So who's willing take fishrman4life and I on their ride? :D

Hey if I dont catch any sturgeon I'll probably be able to hook a Stickfish or Weedbass or something.

LETS GET IT ON!

Very true, when I fished bass tourneys, even a small turkey shoot we drew a large audience. Everyone wanted to know how they can get involved. It is great advertisement and the group of guys there will serly make the audience feel welcomed. It's a win win on everyone's part. ;)

08-25-2005, 03:40 PM
8)Well it is a sad thing, there will be no you now who blessing, because we did not ask the owners first.I was going to call Al today per Rich Alves requst I had a very busy morning and had the call scheduled for 1pm . I recieved a call from one of the owners around 11-1130 am in the middle of a bussiness meeting with city inspectors and the pipeline company dueing the digging and standing over a manhole I got the call,I knew right off she wanted to talk so stepped away from my meeting to listen and answered the couple question.So there is no blessing and no permission to use name and they called Dockside market and said they are not involved and are not sponserers. Well ok I said dont need you to sponser and we wont use your name.And dont expect any donations eitherBut we are going to fish wether anyone likes it or not.We wont call it a derby or a ------------ fest cause someone would need a positive cash flow if we did.So there it is boys and girls were fishin but not donating and using certain words to keep peace in sactown. 8)

Ey fishkiller, add me up to your list at the top...sending my reg. tomorrow afternoon, unless you want it on the day, I could cut you a check.

BTW: Could you maybe throw in a gift card to Cabelas as a second and third prize? Maybe a 100 dollar card for second, 50 bucks for third and 10 for fourth or some sort of trickle down like that? I figure it would be pretty easy get those and keep the prize chain open, just as our private deal. ;)

Seems like a shame that just because we did not ask first that they will not give their blessing. Oh well, I guess it's their loss both in advertisement and money. You would think they'd get over it and sponsor our endeavor but so be it. We're still going out for them critters, blessing or not. See you on the water.

We can call it a turkey shoot. We would do that all the time in the bass club. That way there is no liability or responsability on anyone.

Just a group if good people getting together to see who the top dog is for the day.

sunracer1957
08-26-2005, 10:31 AM
Well not getting a GO ahead from the Sniffer is easy to understand from a liability point of view, and you guys may not agree with me on this but we should still donate some proceeds to the boards, We use them everyday, we all get alot of enjoyment from this place and it would make each and every one of us sad to see it end I will fish the event regardless of what gets done but I still think we should support what we love.. my 02 worth

8)Well Im all for supporting things you love. But the fact of the matter is yes this is there site and there name, but this site would be nothing without the 4000+ people registered here who fish post daily and take other people out to enjoy the one thing we all love to do and thats FISH. And with that said they were watching this sturgeon event unfold the hole time Per Rich Alves can someone tell me why when we wanted to make it a sniffer thing pardon me for not asking to use your name. Did not someone from headquarters chime in and say hey guys you guys got a good thing going , But as for it being a sniffer event or sponsered we have guidelines for these things here let me post them and they need to be adheard toor we cannot be involved . The overwhelming majority would of welcome it . So why no response from the fish sniffer. Who knows.As for know we are fishing without there blessing thats ok cause I catch fish with out blessing been that way for 40 years and I dont see it changing in the next 40 either.So if you still need info pm bassasin for info pages.<<THEFISHKILLER>>??????????????????????????? ??????????

Killer I agree with your post and I'm not sure why the Sniffer dosen't sponcer more events, we will have a great time no matter what!! I just thought it would be a great jesture from the posters to show support..

Have you came up with a new name for the Derby and maybe we should make it an open derby now?? I'm sure some folks from that area would sign up!

No matter how it goes down, I'm ready now!!!

I'm working on getting 2 NEW Penn 320GTI for this and think I have them in the bag for prizes. I'll keep ya posted on that Killer, also trying to get my Co to offer up a couple of Batteries also..

Been away from the boards for a short while and lookie at what I missed. Fishkiller, I'm interested. Just don't know if the dates would work or not, yet.

Since the talk is about a "derby" and involves prizes and/or money; I'm sure there is a need for permits and insurance, etc. Good reason for FS not to get officially involved mid-game. I also think that continuing with the idea of donating a portion of the proceeds to FS forum is a good idea.

Could someone please pm me with the latest details, info, rules, etc? Reading this whole thread at one time this late on a Friday night makes my head hurt, or did it hurt already? :-X

so how will the weigh in work? biggest fish for the group? largest per person? lets hash all this out before saying anyone who wants to in the family can come along. I think it would work better if 5 bucks per extra person were paid by the person registered so that everything has a paper trail and a price is paid to the tourney.

FF_MYRL
08-29-2005, 06:52 PM
my father has been my fishing partner for 31 years (all my life), however, my father has never used the internet. this means he would not be able to fish in this ??derby?? with me, unless family members were allowed.

i think it would be a great idea to let family members fish the derby.

Carlo, its gonna be a self sponsored event, due to legal issues; we're good on doing it this way, and it'll be fine. We have to keep the fishniffer name out of this so no ambulance chasers down the road come after anyone. Its all about the liability game, and I can see why.

As far as family, yeah its cool with me as long as it doesn't get out of hand. immediate family, sure.

So will an extra fee be paid and how will the weigh in work? I still dont know....big fish for group or per person? I figure the registered member should have the decision which fish gets weighed in his group. Should extra money be paid with family members?

sunracer1957
08-30-2005, 09:51 AM
I think it should be up to the folks on the boat if they are fishing as a team or by themselfs, and if I understand the previouse post big fish by pounds wins, please clarify the ground rules for us killer.

I would say that each person with a valid CA fishing license must pay an entry fee. That way if a hitchhiker wins it's their money and hopefully they will make it right with the boat owner. 5 people on a boat=5 entrys. *20x5=$100 for that crew. Each person who pays an entry fee will be able to weigh in a fish. 5 feople in a boat they can weigh in 5 fish. Each person should have a equal chance. I would also say that kids under 16 (no lics. required) fish for half price? What ya think?

fishguts
08-30-2005, 12:48 PM
It should be individual, not a group/team and everyone pays the same with no age brackets and I have two juniors on my boat, lets keep it simple. Individual weighs in their fish they caught, not a group fish and if as a group the people want to split the pot then thats their business.
Killer, you make the rules and I will follow them.

I think you are right fishguts, keep it simple. Everyone should pay the same. It was just a spur of the moment idea. I agree that each paying person should be able to weigh in a fish. No team or group entries. One entry per person, and one fish per entry.

FF_MYRL
08-30-2005, 01:59 PM
I AGREE WITH NO AGE BRACKETS. MY FATHER AND I USE TO FISH TEAM BLACK BASS TOURNAMENTS AND I WAS UNDER 16 YEARS OLD, WHEN I STARTED. WE ALAYS PAID FULL PRICE ENTRIES, AND WHEN WE PLACED, WE WOULD WIN FULL PRICE MONEYS. JUST MY OPINION. THE FISH DO NOT CARE HOW OLD YOU ARE, JUST IF YOUR BAIT IS AT THE RIGHT PLACE AND THE RIGHT TIME.

fishrman4life
08-30-2005, 02:14 PM
i agree that each person should pay an entry fee and be able to weigh their fish, the split in the pot I also agree with. I would be willing to split my pot with the boat owner 20 percent, 10 percent to the sniffer, 70 percent to the catcher

Also the team people on boat issue. Let me see, been in a few sturgy tourney/derby things, and my dad would never let me weigh in his fish its his. Always paid for two entries or three if we had three on the boat, nobody is taking credit for my fish, money or not.
