    If there were $200,000 on the line you would have known what it felt like to be Aaron.

    Define "special event." My "permit" is my frigg'n fishing license, thats all the permission you should need :mad: Thats like saying I need a permit from the golf course to hold a golf outing on top of my greens fees. Who is the park manager up there and do you have a phone number for them?

    the problem arises when money is transfered from one person to another in a bussiness manner. You may hold "outings" at anytime, because no money is being exchanged...

    Smallie, it's the same for any tournament at any of the lakes. The guys holding Muskie tournaments have to get permission also or they are illegal.

    For anyone who feels the need to fish for some money this weekend, The NOBC (aka Berlin Thursday Nighters) Will be hosting an Open on Saturday September 3rd. A few of our Thursday night members expressed an interest in fishing on Saturday and since Gomez's tourney got cancelled we are inviting everybody with 42$ to come fish with us Saturday no memebership required. Feel free to launch your boat at any ramp, but we will be drawing boat numbers and fishing out of Dutch Harbor. 7:00 launch 3:00 weigh-in.
     
  12. Nip, you need a partner? I have no smallboat avail right now and no partner with a small boat... let me know.

    I think the # is 330-644-2220. they are there till 4:30. the secretary's name is eloise but I forget the park mgr's name. very nice people and I could tell that if there was any way he would have helped me out but he couldn't. they were apologetic of the confusion and that I drove up there for nothing after they told me earlier in the week to just come in to the office and pick the permit up.

  14. Any special events- even club outings- are required to submit for application at any state park. The exchange of monies is not permitted even with the permit. This allows for planning, preparation and organization between any recreational entity, the public and management of the State Parks.

    Could you imagine a charatible kids day, musky event, a walleye tournament, a bass club and an organized open bass event coming outa the same ramp the same day!!! The permits help eliminate this potential type of problem.

    Many states are even more scrutinizing requiring a draw of dates and waters for organizers, restricitions on times of the year and requirements of liability insurance. Some fees to obtain a permit are expensive as well. Ohio is moving in this direction for the years to come.

    PL won't issue permits for tournaments- nor will WB- between Memorial day and Labor Day due to high volumes of recreational use already during these times.
