Tournament Rules and Descriptions

Unless Tournament specifies that it is open to ALL members, only members that joined the Tournaments will be allowed to participate. However, any member can weigh in a fish. If it’s the heaviest specie that year, it would qualify to have the member’s name placed on the yearly plaque.

There are 2 divisions.  All new members start in the Tale Chasers (beginner division).  After you win one of the following tournaments you will be moved into the Champions Division.
