The winner Will be determined by total-weight, the fish will be caught weighed and released right away. This will allow the fish limited stress and to ensure the great fisherie remains here on the Chicago river.

Makes me feel real comfortable about signing up
I'm sure that has to be posted because of all the crimes that happen in chicago. I've gotten stolen gear from my truck before. In my dang Driveway! :twisted: But i guess it happens. With the crime rate these days. That should be posted for the tournament, its also a good warning to lock your doors on your truck and hide your gear underneath a blanket or sumtin. You never know. I learned the hard way more than once. :eek:

Take Care guys. But for me, im not a big chicago river guy. Now the Fox will change my whole perspective.

Every tourny should have a disclaimer such as that. If I have my car broken into and gear stolen while fishing a tourny at the WWD, whoever is running the tourny should not be responsible. Unfortunately, in this day and age, there are some people that do.

Just for safety purposes. Nothing has ever happened and the area in itself isn't a high crime area patrol cars stroll by often as it's not to far from the police station. But I've never seen anything happen and from 10 up I fished it by myself until night, nothings ever happened.

again if anyone is looking to sign up, Please e-mail me at [email protected]

We have 12 Anglers so far.
