Event Details

Two single day, two person team events. Teams can fish both days or just one or the other.  Each day will see the top 20% of the teams automatically qualify for the National Championship.

Saturday Jan 14th each team will be fishing for their best 16 'gills on Emerson Bay (West Okoboji).

Sunday Jan 15th each team will be fishing for their best bag of 8 Crappie and 8 Bluegills, on East Okoboji.

There will be ONE combined rules meeting on Friday the 13th.  Team check in will begin at 5:00PM and the rules meeting will start at 6:30 PM at Snappers Restaraunt, Located at Parks Marina |  24457 178th St. Okoboji, IA.

One member of each team MUST attend this meeting. 

Starting positions for both days will be determined by random draw at the rules meeting.  Daily big fish pots (cash only) will be available before the rules meeting.   

If for some reason a team fishing Sunday ONLY can't make the meeting Friday night, they will need to certify on Sunday morning that they have watched the meeting video that will be posted on our Facebook page.

Both awards ceremonies will be held back at Snappers Restaurant after weigh-ins

Other details will be discussed/updated at the rules meeting.
