Tournaments

Club Tournaments

Tournaments are a draw format.The draw will occur at the club meeting prior to the event. Each boater's and non-boater's name is put in separate hats and drawn as "partners". If a boater or non-boater is drawn out for a tournament, they are given priority for the next tournament. All efforts will be made to minimize draw outs.

For regular scheduled tournaments, your individual fish weight counts. The fish is weighed on a club provided hand scale at the time of catch and verified by the co-angler. The weight is recorded on a card with the 5 heaviest fish counting as your score. Some special events, like Opens or State Team events, may be held as live weigh and will be announced in advance.

For all tournaments, you will travel to and from with the person drawn.  Travel costs are split between partners. This includes truck gas, boat gas, lodging (if required), park fees, etc. and is generally discussed prior to leaving. In addition, there is a $20 per day fee paid by the non-boater to the boater to cover boat cost, maintenance, and insurance.For 2 day tournaments, you will be paired up with a different boater on the second day but all costs will be reconciled with your travel partner.

During tournament day, the non-boater is given the opportunity to choose the water fished during one half of the day (Boater chooses which half of the day they want control). If the non-boater is operating the tow vehicle or boat at any time, and damage occurs by the non-boater, it  is the financial responsibility of the non-boater to resolve.

Entry Fee 1 Day Tournament: $40. 
A $2 service charge will be added to credit card payments

Entry Fee 2 Day Tournament: $60. 
A $3 service charge will be added to credit card payments

As part of the entry fee, the following is paid to the qualifying entrants at the conclusion of the tournament.
     - Top finishers. Minimum top 3 with amount contingent on # of entrants.
     - Boat weight. Highest total collective weight by boat.
     - Big Bass. Highest single fish weight caught during the tournament.

The goal is to have fun and learn something while competing against fellow anglers!
