HISTORY IS MADE TODAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Today history was made for float tubers in California. After jumping through many hoops as President of the Sonoma County Belly Boat Bass Club I would like to personally let you all in on some breaking news.For all the float tubers and kick boaters attending this weekends SCBBBC State Classic at Clear Lakes State Park. You might like to know that if you planned on running, I have some news for you. You will be doing it totally legally as we have the first ever permit for transporting live game fish while fishing the 2006 State Classic. You read it write. You can run this year if you have the following set-up. 1ST you must have no less then a 48 quart ice chest, ( Coleman / Igloo ) You must have a 500 Gallons Per Hour pump(GPH) circulating the water in your live-well at all times. You must have Rejuvenate Bassmeds in your water at all times. You must have ice if the weather permits it. The fish can not be left in your running live well while you are in your boat fishing. You will not be able to run with a plastic tote of any kind what so ever. ONLY ONE LIMIT PER LIVE-WELLIf you show up and do not have these specific requirements you will not be allowed to run.For those who do not plan on running be sure your live wells are up to the standards listed in the SCBBBC rules. If your live wells are not up to our standards you will not be able to attend the event.This is huge for our sport and just one on a few other hurdles I plan on jumping for all of us in the float tube world.Rich
