For 30 years, honesty, camaraderie, and conservation have underpinned the tournament. Recognizing concerns over catch-and-release mortality, we have modified the rules and changed the focus from high fish tallies to a fish quota — the first team to fill its quota wins.
The fish quota is four fish per angler for teams of three members or less. Three fish per angler for teams of four or more fishermen. The twist is that each member of a team must catch his or her own quota for the team to qualify. Plaques will be awarded based on each qualifying team’s team finish time.
The biggest fish category is a combination of length and girth. Fishing in that category may continue even after a member of a team meets his or her quota. Hooks must be barbless or the barbs must be crushed down.
One of the unique aspects of this event is that every participant who is present at the awards ceremony has an opportunity to win one of the many great prizes our generous supporters contribute each year in an open lottery.
The entry fee is $45. The money raised helps to support club youth activities. Check the Rod and Gun Club website (mvrodandgun.org) for updates or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
