Family Fishing Tournament

Written by: on Wednesday, June 5th, 2024

Mark your calendars for June 15 and join us for a beloved family tradition—the annual fishing contest! Whether you’re a seasoned angler or just looking for a fun family outing, this event promises excitement, camaraderie, and the chance to reel in some impressive catches. With medallions awarded in multiple categories, there’s a chance for everyone to shine.

Event Highlights:

  • Categories for Medallions:
    • Largest Perch
    • Largest Bluegill
    • Largest Bass
    • Largest Crappie
    • Largest Stringer of Game Fish by Weight (for one angler’s legal limit of gamefish for the day)
  • Bonus for Catch and Release:
    A 1 oz. bonus will be added for game fish that are caught and released, encouraging sustainable fishing practices.
  • Legal Fishing Only:
    All fish must be caught by legal means, ensuring a fair and enjoyable competition for everyone.
  • No Cull Contest:
    This is a no cull contest, meaning you cannot replace a smaller fish with a heavier fish on the stringer. The first fish you catch counts, so every catch matters!
  • Tiebreaker:
    In the event of a tie, the earliest-weighed fish will win, adding an extra layer of excitement to the competition.
  • Weigh-In Times and Location:
    Weigh-in at the beach area near the lake shore will take place from 12 – 1 PM and from 7 – 8 PM. Awards will be given immediately following the final weigh-in.
