How will the fish be scored(C&R allowed)? I might have to look into this, my family has a cottage close to there and I fish French a little bit whenever I'm up there. I hope they raise some cash, but on the other hand if it's a catch and kill tournament then a big event like this may do some hurting to the fishery.

You can catch and release. Just about everyone does. A lot of the fishermen do keep some walleye. At the registration you will be issued a ruler with a number at attached to it, once you catch a fish you take a picture of it with said ruler and your cell phone. You can then release your fish and bring your picture to the judges at the Utica firehall.
This bass tourney has gotten bigger each year it has been in place, it generates enough cash to fund the crimewatch for that small community all year as well as other community events. Check it out, it is always a good time. Plus Straub Beer is a sponsor!
