IMPORTANT NOTICE:
It is the interpretation of the Sherwood Bass Club board that the word trolling also encompasses “strolling and drift fishing”. So with this said, NO TROLLING, STROLLING, OR DRAFT Fishing will be allowed during tournament hours.

Only ONE casting, spin cast, or spinning rod and reel may be used at any one time. All casts must be completed before making a cast with another rod.
