I have never been to an Elite series event. I’m really looking forward to the one on St.Clair, but I have a few questions about attending. My first is, were is it going to launch & were is the weigh in? How early should I get there, & if I wanted to take my boat out were would I launch it? Is anyone else going to check it out?

i went my first year really really early and it was a mess. I waited like three hours for them to launch.( sitting at the entrance of the lake). the next year I went to the docks right after they took off and it was a ghost town. then all I did was drive around the lake ( lake Okeechobee) until I found who I was looking for and followed them the rest of the day. it was hard watching them all day without fishing. the 2nd day I fished ( a way from any of them) and just went to the weigh in. Be ready to watch from a distance and be bored. you could watch all day and not see them catch a fish. lol the weigh in is fun but chasing them around not so much. Bring binoculars. lol BH

Here you go. You’ll love it! Show up early with your life jacket and drinks, see if they need any extra Marshalls.

I would get there at least an hour early. A guy named Chuck Harbin runs the show. He’s usually there really early. He’ll be the one to talk to about getting in a boat.

Thanks for the suggestion to talk to Chuck Twitch!I had the chance to Marshall yesterday. It was incredible!!! I went out with Kurt Dove, and we tore up lake St. Clair with four foot waves in his Skeeter. He didn’t have a great first day, which put him behind the eight ball day two when I rode with him. He had a much better day two but it wasn’t enough to make the cut. That guy is a grinder, I learn some cool stuff from him.
