Lake Santee / Division IN-47

04/16/2021

Less than 48 hours away from the start of the 2021 Lake Santee Division IN-47 USA Bassin season.

Important information for tournament day:

1. Please arrive early, we are expecting a large turnout so parking may be at a premium.

2. Teams should allow enough time be registered/entered in the event and their boat launched before the 6:30 AM on-the-water meeting.

3. Please remember to utilize the appropriate social distancing techniques as the situation dictates.

4. DON'T BE LATE for the 6:30 AM on-the-water pretournament meeting. Rules and proceedures will be outlined for the day's event at that time.

REMEMBER: Take off and weigh in for this event will be held at Greg and Cara's Lake Santee Marina.

If your team has not obtained their 2021 membership, you may either do so online at USABassin.com or see the division tournament director the morning of the event.

***IMPORTANT INFORMATION***

Due to the continued low water level of Lake Santee, we will be relocating both the take-off and the weigh-in to the Lake Santee Marina. We would like to thank Greg and Cara Geis for allowing us to utilize their property and docks for this event.

When teams arrive, they should immediately launch their boats and procede to one of the several floating docks in the area. Once the team's boat is secured, please come the registration area and enter the event. Upon doing so, a tournament official will conduct a livewell check. 

The pretournament meeting will be conducted on the water at 6:30 as part of the corona virus protocol.  This meeting will take place in the cove adjacent to the dam spillway.

All entries must be completed prior to the pretournament meeting.

The weigh-in will also be held in the marina area. Teams may utilize the numerous docks in the area or, for this event only, we will permit a trailered weigh-in. Please exercise social distancing and optional masks during the weigh-in process as part of the continued corona virus protocol.

When docking at the marina, please take care in not blocking the gas pump area of the large wooden dock.

Please exercise patience during both the pretournament time period and the weigh-in procedure. 

While we realize this is a departure from our normal procedure, we believe this will be better option for all involved.

We hope to see everyone Sunday!

God Bless,

Chip & Lisa Ayers

This tournament WILL be held, however, due to the exceptionally low water level of the lake, options are being considered as to where the take off and weigh in will be held.

Please continue to follow USABassin.com at the Lake Santee Division IN-47 link for all updates.

April 5, 2021

We are very excited to anounce that we now have a sponsor for the Lake Santee Division trophies for the upcoming 2021 season! Mr. Paul Pank and all the fantastic folks at Baird Finacial Management in Greensburg, IN have generously agreed to sponsor the awards. Thank you, Paul!

As everyone is aware, the water level remains low at Lake Santee from the recent ramp replacement project. Please exercise caution in launching your boat until the lake reaches summer pool.

For those who have not yet obtained their 2021 USA Bassin membership, options to do so are detailed below.

We hope everyone had a blessed Easter weekend.

We will see everyone on the 17th!

God Bless,

Chip & Lisa Ayers

IMPORTANT INFORMATION CONCERNING THE IN-47 LAKE SANTEE DIVISION

Lake Santee is a private lake managed by a home owners association, the Lake Santee Property Owner’s Association.  That being said, all rules and bylaws enacted by the homeowner’s association must take precedence, first and foremost.  We have received several inquiries concerning eligibility to take part in our tournaments.  According to the by-laws, only boats registered to property owners who are members in good standing of the association are permitted access to the lake.  In addition, one member of the tournament team must be an association member or immediate family member (spouse, child, etc.).  This rule, unfortunately, does sometimes exclude participation by teams who don’t meet those requirements.

With all that being said, THERE ARE NUMEROUS LOTS FOR SALE at Lake Santee!  These lots can be purchased for very reasonable prices and, in doing so, allows the owner(s) full access to the lake and all included privileges.  Interested parties may contact the Lake Santee Property Owners Association office six days a week to learn more about the community and obtain lists of lots for sale and local real estate agents contact information.

If you are interested in becoming a part of one of the Midwest’s best bass fishing lakes, take a few minutes and research Lake Santee.  As tournament directors, our goal is to include as many anglers in our events, not exclude them.  However, we must abide by the association’s bylaws to do so. 

Thank you to everyone for their understanding in this matter.

God Bless,

Chip & Lisa Ayers
