What is the entry fee?

The entry fee is $240 for a three day entry or $160 for a two day entry or $110 for a one day entry (per angler) and you may fish with the co-angler of your choice.

We will continue the Junior Division for 2022. Participants 12 and under will compete for a separate single event payout. The entry fee for the entire event is $75 (regardless of the number of days fished) and we will pay $500 to the largest overall junior fish of the event. Anglers 13 and over will compete for full payouts and pay full entry fees.

Is the tournament entry fee per angler or per boat?

The entry fee is per angler.

Can a co-angler fish with me in my boat?

Yes, this is an individual event for scoring purposes but anglers can have a co-angler of their choice fish with them and you do NOT have to sign up at the same time to fish together.

How many anglers can I have in my boat?

You may have up to three (3) anglers per boat assuming the boat has the required rating capacity. Each angler must be a paid participant.

Can I have someone in my boat that isn’t competing in the tournament?

No, each person in the boat (during tournament hours) must be a paid participant.
