Registration for the event begins now and will end at 4:00 pm CST May 8, 2015. The tournament begins at 12:01 am CST May 9, and ends at midnight CST May 17. A PDF image will be emailed to all registered participants at 4:00 pm CST May 8, which must be printed out and included with any photos of fish. Your photo must include a fish measuring device such as a Hawg Trough or similar, along with the image printout clearly displayed. You can catch a 19” pike one day, and then replace it with a larger 23” fish a day later.
Participation is open to anyone eighteen years of age or older, as well as minors with parent or guardian signed release form. Fish must be caught from human-powered boats in the waters of Minnesota, Wisconsin, North Dakota, South Dakota, Iowa, or Nebraska. Prizes for this event include a laser-etched trophy plaque, a Backwater Assault hand paddle, bragging rights, and a big old picture of your fish on our website and Facebook page. Last year we had over fifty two entrants, so let’s get double that this year.
