2020 Skipper of the Year (SOTY) Boat Trolling Tournament Schedule


The Boat Trolling Tournament Committee has set the schedule for the upcoming 2020 Season. There will be 7 tournaments this year, of which a Skipper's best 4 will count towards the Skipper of the Year Award.


Tournament entry fees remain at $20 per boat per tournament. The Big Fish Pool also continues at $20 and is divided into 3 separate pools - Big Salmon for $10 per boat, Big Steelhead for $5 per boat & Big Lake Trout for $5 per boat. All 3 pools must be entered to participate. It should also be noted that to match the tournament weigh-in rules a Big Fish entry will be disqualified if the Skipper is 15 minutes or more late to the weigh-in.  We look forward to seeing you on the water!
