AIS Boat Inspections

Tournament regulations require that each boat participating in the Frank Schneider tournament be inspected for aquatic invasive species at a DNR-certified inspection location before it is put into any tournament waters for fishing or pre-fishing. The ONLY exception is if the boat has been in the same body of water you will be fishing and nowhere else for a minimum of 30 days prior to the tournament or any pre-fishing. 

Included in the confirmation information mailed to each participant is a Boat Inspection Card. Every contestant must check one of the choices on the left-hand side of the card and complete the box on the bottom of the card. If you checked choice number 3, please complete the upper portion on the right-hand side of the card when your boat is inspected. If the inspector indicates that your boat must be decontaminated, please fill out that portion of the card also.  

You will need to turn in the completed Boat Inspection Card on Thursday, September 9, or Friday, September 10 before you start fishing in the Tournament.
