Adult Big Bass Tournament

**Venue Change:  this event will be held in the village of Wellington Point on Wellington Pond. The pond is located at the corner of Stonebridge Drive and Glen Oaks Drive.**


On Saturday, Nov. 18, residents (age 18+) are invited to compete in the Adult Big Bass Tournament at Wellington Pond.  The entry fee is $10 per person and must be paid in cash on the day of the tournament. Only residents of Stonebridge Ranch (ages 18+) will be allowed to enter; a valid Stonebridge Ranch ID or driver’s license is required. First place will win 100% of the entry fees. In the case of a tie, prize money will be equally split.

Fish caught from any other body of water other than Wellington Pond will not be considered. Only paying contestants are allowed to fish in the pond during this event.  (Spectators, including children, are not allowed to do so.) Registration is from 8:30 to 9 a.m. at tournament check-in. After check-in, fishermen can proceed to any part of Wellington Pond to fish but may not cross onto private property. The tournament will be held from 9 a.m. to noon, with no casting permitted before 9 a.m.

The rules are as follows. You may fish from the bank only; wading, tubes and boats are NOT permitted. Fisherman may carry several rods but fish with only one at a time. Only artificial bait is allowed; no live bait permitted. The big bass will be determined by length, not weight. The fish will be measured with the jaw closed and the tail pinched to obtain maximum overall length. Final weigh-in will be held at noon, though fish may be brought to the judges’ table to be measured at any time during tournament hours. Fish must be brought in alive and breathing at weigh-in. They will be returned to the lake after weigh-in. Participants will be given a stringer, weigh-in bag and should bring their ONE biggest fish to the weigh-in. All contestants who are not in line by noon to weigh their entries will be disqualified. The Tournament Judge will give all participants the official time the morning of the event.
