Junior "Babe-ette" Division Guidelines
Every year the tournament has girls 16 years of age and under that fish. The tournament has never
recognized these girls for their team effort and what each one of them brings to the tournament as a whole.
That is going to stop right now.
Babes on the Bay recognizes these young girls that go out and fish just like the more mature girls.
There are two divisions: Guided and Non-Guided
There will be four trophies: 1st and 2nd in the Guided and 1st and 2nd in the Non-Guided
They will not be split by artificial or any bait.
This will not be a separate tournament, but it will simply include the Babe-ettes in the current program. So,
if you have a girl that qualifies for this division on your team and she lands a large trout or redfish that you
want as part of your team stringer then you can include it. At weigh in mention that the red was caught by a
Babe-ette and give the name. This process makes it possible for her to place with the team as a whole
and to qualify in the Junior Division. Make sure that if you team is fishing the artificial only divisions that the
Junior also only uses artificial.
Another scenario would be if 1 to 4 Babe-ettes got together as a team. They would still have to register in
the Non-Guided/Guided – Artificial or Any Bait divisions. That team would be eligible to win the tournament
competing against every contestant, but also would qualify for the Junior Division. Remember, there are
only 4 trophies for the entire Junior Division, 1st and 2nd in Guided and 1st and 2nd in Non-Guided.
Determination of the winner. The winners of this division are based on the heaviest fish, trout or redfish.
Future changes: There may be changes for the Babe-ette group depending on the participation this year.
Any comments/suggestions are more than welcome.
