Rules and Regulations:
All North Carolina state fishing regulations apply

Teams can fish any tournaments they wish but must participate in at least three of the four events to qualify for the series awards
If you fish all four events, your top three scores will be taken
Each team will consist of 1-4 anglers
Only those listed as part of that team can participate in the events and be eligible for the series payouts. Example: Joe, Bill, Fred, and Sue are listed as the team. Any or all of them can fish together at the events that make up this series. However, if Bill, Fred, and Sue all have a conflict and can’t fish one weekend, Joe can’t go recruit Alan to fish with him. Joe would have to fish alone for that event.
Those making up this team can’t fish on any other boat in the series or that boat will not be eligible for the year-end payouts. However, they could fish on another boat and be eligible for that individual tournament, but not the series.
