  • Weather Delays and Cancelations:
    • Small Watercraft Wind Advisory: If the wind is projected to be 18mph (based on The Weather Channel App) at any time during the Tournament Hours the director will cancel that day of the tournament.
    • In the event of extreme weather conditions such as Tornados, Tornado Warnings, Lightning, or the tournament director will put the tournament on hold until all warnings expire, or the storms have passed, then and only then will we proceed with the tournament.
    • Should the tournament be delayed due to the weather, and we decide to launch, the check-in times will stand as posted.
    • If the storms or warnings have not passed or expired prior to 10:00am, the director and staff will make the decision to cancel that day of fishing.
    • Examples:
      • If day 1 of this tournament is canceled, then we will repeat day 1 takeoff schedule on day 2 and it will be a one day shoot out. 
      • If day 2 of this tournament is canceled, then the leaders of day 1 will be crowned the winners.
      • Should both scheduled days of this tournament (May 3rd & 4th) be cancelled due to a weather-related circumstance, then Sunday, May 5th will be used as a rain out day and we will use the day 1 takeoff schedule. We will only use Sunday, May 5th as a rain out day if both scheduled days are canceled.
      • If all three days are cancelled, then there will be a Lottery Draw for the Bass Cat Boat and $160.00 of the entry fee will be refunded.
      • We have been contacted by TWRA that Bay Springs Lake contains Alabama Bass, which are considered an invasive species in Tennessee.  They have encouraged us to not allow participants to harvest fish from Bay Springs Lake and bring them into Tennessee.  So, we are prohibiting fishing south of the Highway 25 bridge in Yellow Creek, Mississippi during all Championship Week Events!!

  • USA BASSIN will not hold a Divisional or a Regional Tournament on Pickwick Lake, TN
