2006 Fishing Tournaments

Rend Lake Sporting Goods' Wednesday Night Tournament on Rend Lake

Sponsored by Rend Lake Sporting Goods, these tournaments were started in 1999 by a local angler as a result of hearing many local fishermen say that they work weekends, cannot fish weekend tournaments and do not or cannot afford to pay a high entry fee to fish a tournament. We are pleased to report that the tournaments have produced a tremendous response.

These tournaments are open to anyone. You do not have to be a member of a club to fish the tournament. There are no dues to become a member in order to fish. They are always held on Rend Lake at Sailboat Harbor.

Registration and pre-tournament meetings are held every Wednesday night at 6:00 p.m. at the Sailboat Harbor. It is a buddy tournament, but you do not have to have a partner. You can fish by yourself if you wish. Entry fee is 20 USD per boat and big bass pot is 5 USD per boat. Payback is 60/40 up to 14 boats. Payback is 50/30/20 for 15 boats or more. Fish allowed are largemouth bass only.

You do not have to fish every Wednesday night. Anytime you want to fish the tournament, just come on down. For more information, contact Alan at Rend Lake Sporting Goods, 618-242-2191.
