Yes it is this weekend. You can sign up the morning of the tournament if you need to. They are having a meeting the night before the tournament that they encourage you to attend but isn't totally necessary. What do you think of the two day tourney concept?

Can anyone tell me more about this tornament? Who's putting it on and what does it cost?

Also what's the water level like? Last time I was there I couldn't get my tri-hull off the trialer.

The tournament is put on by the SW Mn Fishing Club which spends all of it's dollars in SW MN lakes for landing replacement, docks, areation systems, and learning programs for children.

The tournament is Saturday June 2nd on Round Lake for leg 1 and Sunday June 3rd on Lake Okabena in Worthington for leg 2. Both days from 7:30 to 3pm. Registration starts at 6am at East Side Acres campground in Round Lake and 6am Sunday at Sunset Park in Worthington. Entry Fee is 50 per boat, two fisher-persons per boat (note my political correctness)

1st Prize Payout 1000.00 GUARANTEED

2nd through 10th based on number of paid entries

Limit of 6 Fish per boat

Minimum size of 15 inches

1 fish over 20 per BOAT

you can pre register by calling 507-360-8565 or 507-360-3973

shotgun start both days, weigh in both days at 3pm

There will be a meeting on Friday June 1st for those who would like to attend at 7pm at Cole's (Formerly the Longbranch Saloon in Worthington) They would like at least 1 member present for each team.

Food and Prize money to be given out Sunday following the Weigh in at Centenial Beach, On Saturday Eastside acres will be open early for coffee, donuts, ect

The money raised on this tourney all stays local to improve lake access, lake shoreline, oxygen levels and youth education!!!!!

Happy fishing!

Boiler, I know this is not the place for tournament listings, this is also in the tournament section, just figured I would put the info here based on the questions. So it is in both locations.
