4. CONSERVATION: All bass to be weighed in must be presented to the director in a weigh-in bag filled with
enough water to sustain the health of the fish through the weigh-in. No individual shall possess more than 5
legal bass at any time (Legal culling is permitted). Possession of more than 5 legal bass will be grounds for
expulsion from the Tournament in question. At no time shall a competitor attempt to weigh bass caught
during Get5bass competition with another tournament organization or entity, and doing so will be grounds
for disqualification from the tournament in question and the Solo Series Points race.
5. ETHICS: Contestants may not “seed” or direct others to “seed” brushpiles, bays, weed edges, bridges,
rockpiles, rip-rap etc. “Seeding” will be defined as the releasing of legal bass in specific areas of the lake
with the intent of catching those fish again during the tournament competition hours. Contestants/Teams
may not “bait” or direct others to “bait” brushpiles, bays, weed edges, bridges, rockpiles, rip-rap etc. Baiting
will be defined as “The application of light, food, dog food, fish food, corn, baitfish, crayfish, frogs, toads,
insects, etc. to a specific area of the lake in order to attract baitfish or legal bass to that area. Normal culling
practices are allowed (releasing of smaller fish to increase weight of bag). Legally fishing in areas known to
be tournament release sites is permitted (Except in the State Park Cove on Lake Dardanelle as defined in
rule #7) “Seeding” and “Baiting” will be grounds for expulsion from all Get5bass Solo Series events.
6. TACKLE AND EQUIPMENT: Only artificial lures may be used. All fish must be caught in a legal sporting
manner. No "live bait" or "prepared bait" will be permitted, with the exception of pork strips, rinds, etc. Only
ONE casting, spin-casting or spinning rod and reel may be used at any one time. Alabama Rigs or Umbrella
Rigs are not allowed. Alabama Rigs or Umbrella Rigs are defined as An apparatus consisting of wire
strands, rigging, harness, or other device which allows a fanned out presentation, allowing the attachment
of multiple lures with or without hooks to a single line. This apparatus is not approved for use in any Solo
Series event. Solo Series officials have sole authority to determine whether a lure is considered a single
lure as defined. Each cast must be completed before another rod and reel may be used. All bass must be
caught live and in a conventional sporting manner. No trolling or strolling. Gaffs may not be used nor be
permitted in the boat at any time. Landing nets may be used. Contestants may not use electronic "bugging"
devices, or chemicals during official competition days on the tournament waters.
