Last years weigh in, entry fee, pay out, how many boats and any pos/neg feedback. Most tournaments have pretty much the same rules so that dosen't really factor in. I'd say last years weigh in and my experience on that body of water are the top two.

Things I like to see in tournaments are.Reasonable entry fees,a decent field of boats 50 is usually a good start,A body of water that can withstand tournament pressure,A good rules meeting before the event, Boat checks before launch,A random draw for takeoff.These are a few of the things I look for in tourneys.Smaller tournaments are fun and not so serious,but when you start getting pots of a grand or more you want things run fair and smooth.One thing Id like to see in some of these tournament trails is to mix their tournament sites up a little more,It seems they return to the same sites same time every year.

Past History, good body of water, good pay out potential, reasonable entry fee and I like the 2 day events. This is when Im in a serious mode.

When Im just fishing for "Funzies" and not to serious Ill fish just about any contest/tourney that doesnt have a track record of killing fish.

    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
    •   Non-matching carpet and drapes have been known to cause numerous issues, too, with or without beetles, especially in Los Angeles. Keep the hamsters safe by putting in a zip-loc bag during spraying.
    • Yes, I agree with you, but there are some professionals in Queens NY who provides an eco-friendly spray, which is not harmful.
    • I smoked a pork shoulder yesterday that turned out great, but the rack it sat on took a lot of soaking and scrubbing to get clean afterwards. Got any tricks to keep the rack less crusty? Spray it with Pam before the smoke or??
    • I stopped at a small engine shop on my way up north Monday and he confirmed what RebelSS said. I got some yellow tubing and after struggling for almost 1/2 hour, got the lines reconnected and went out and whacked some weeds. Thanks for all the replies.
    • I read somewhere that the chemicals used by Queens NY pest control caused male pattern baldness and birth defects in pet hamsters. 
    • Last Friday, I saw a beetle at my home's carpet. It is very difficult for me to get rid with this beetle and I also saw some eggs were laying on the carpet, which was quite damaging. Then on a recommendation of my neighbor I had called up the Queens NY pest control services, who had used an insect spray and where the experts spray around the floorboards, furniture and on carpets and helped us by preventing the carpet beetles laying their eggs and removing all the food sources.
