just want to let you know what we got going on for prizes so far Sunday may 17th

tournament prizes are 80% payback

for example if we have 100 anglers in the tournament the cash prize for each category would be $800 if you win two category's then you win $1600

then on top of that sponsors are throwing in over $4000 in raffle prizes that will be raffled off after weigh in plus goodie bags of cool stuff from our sponsors will be handed out at registration while supplies last

Then the band starts playing and we eat/drink/have fun hope to see you there
