About the Tournament

Anglers will compete in a nationwide competition for a cash prize during our multi-species fishing tournament to help fund research for children battling cancer. The six-month-long tournament utilizes a mobile app (iANGLER Tournament) to keep track of results. The tournament kicks off at 6 a.m. on April 15th, 2020 and runs until 12 p.m. Sept. 30th, 2020.

Anglers will be able to submit photographs showing the measurements of their longest fish of each species throughout the tournament and the top three finishers in each species category will earn a cash prize.

Those wishing to register for the tournament can do so for just $25.
