Horsetooth Reservoir

This will be the 20th Annual Full Moon Open at Horsetooth. It is a bass tournament fundraiser for our Bass Club. Proceeds fund habitat and conservation projects, local charities, (including all three local Food Banks, ALS Association, ACS, Larimer County Search & Rescue, etc.). We fish from 7:00 p.m. until 7:00 a.m. and start with ceremonies on the water at South Bay. All participants are required to wear Coast Guard approved PFDs anytime big motor is on, and a kill switch attached. 52 boat maximum number (as set by Mark Caughlan). Many EMTs fish this event, and we have our own AED machine. We have contact information for Ranger On Duty, and 6 of our own radios for communication. We plan land volunteers to assist through the night if needed. All State and local laws are enforced, including no alcohol or drugs allowed during tournament hours. Individual insurance requirements are $300,000 limits, while we meet as a Club for this BASS sanctioned event the limite required by Larimer County (addition insured as well). We utilize the South Bay Pavilion for weigh-in process, and will use release boats to take fish away from the Swim Beach area for distribution throughout the Reservoir. We leave the area after weigh-in ceremonies and Award Ceremony Sunday morning. No special staff or restrooms are required, and we have little or no impact on boat traffic during these times.
