Annual Fish-Off

Thursday Tournaments

Weekend Tournaments

Fish-Off Qualification . . .

A Fish-Off is held at the end of the season for those who qualify through the Thursday night circuit or the Weekend circuit. A point system is kept based on pounds of fish caught. Those in the top 50% of the point standings at the end of the year from both circuits will advance to the fish-off. Teams can also automatically qualify by fishing 18 of 20 Thursdays or 6 of the 7 weekend tournaments.   The two day tournament counts as two tournaments in regards to the 6 of 7 tournaments.  The Fish-Off payback comes entirely from entry fees. 

Prepay To Secure A Take-off Number . . .

Pay for 1/2 of the Thursday Night Tournament ($400) or Weekend Tournament to secure a take-off number for the season. The other half is due in full prior to 2nd half of season. We will begin taking entry fees/deposits in March at the store or by mail. A drawing for prepay positions will be held and positions will be assigned as monies are received after the prepay positions are filled.
