WON 2023 Big Fish Challenge Tournament
WHEN: the WON Big Fish Challenge runs for 10 weeks – Friday, June 30th, 2023 through Thursday, September 7th, 2023, so it starts the Friday before 4th of July weekend and ends on the Thursday after Labor Day weekend.
HOW: Bring your catch to one of the Official Weigh Stations below and take a photo with the official weigh-board filled out fully.
- All fish entries must be submitted within 72 hours, except for the final week of the tournament where all fish must be submitted by midnight on September 7th, 2023.
- A fish can therefore be caught in a preceding week, but entered into the following week, as long as it meets the 72 hour deadline and is submitted before the contest’s final day.
- Winners of weekly prize are determined by the date a fish is submitted, and not the date caught.
- There are 5 Eligible Categories to win cash and prizes for 2022:
- There will be weekly winners in each of the fish species for 10 weeks straight, and also an overall winner in each species for the entire derby (Prizes are subject to change, for a current list of prizes, refer to the sign-up page).
- Cost of entry is $50, and makes you eligible for all five species.
- Anglers must sign up one calendar day prior to submitting a fish entry. There is no hour limitation, as long as you sign up before midnight the day before you catch your fish for submission.
- These rules are subject to revision and/or clarification by our tournament committee.
- Entries should be weighed at the official weigh stations as listed below:
