2018/2019 Striper Mafia Tournament Series on Smith Mountain Lake, VA
The Striper Mafia is hosting our third season of a "CPR" (Catch-Photo-Release) tournament series on Smith Mountain Lake, VA. Events will be held in October, December, March & April during which the "slot" is in place to protect our larger fish, and be conducted in a "Catch-Photo-Release" style. The format will feature a Captain's meeting on the evening before at a location to be defined to review the rules and hand out approved measuring devices & photo token cards and "lines in water" will follow at safe-light as designated for each tournament, with the "check-in" at a time to be determined later that day. Tournament fees are to be paid at the Captain's Meeting (in cash). Pre-registration is encouraged due to the limited number of slots, but we ask that you have full intention of fishing the event before registering.
