    • Fishing 4 of the 5 available events for a single lake series, not only qualifies you for the lake championship, it also gives you 1 entry into the trailer drawing.  There is no limit on the amount of these entries you can earn.  For example if you fish 4 events at Summit Lake and you fish 4 events at Sullivan Lake you will have 2 entries in to the trailer drawing.  Wait but there's more...

    • Fishing 8 events total from any combination of lake series events also earns you an entry into the trailer drawing.  Combine with the example above, that would give you 3 entries in the trailer drawing.  Limit one entry.

    • You can qualify for our lake championship simply by getting out and fishing our events.  Even if you finish where Jim normally does, towards the bottom.

    • Fish 4 of the 5 events in a single lake series and you qualify to attend the championship.

      • No limit on entries towards the trailer drawing mentioned above​

    • Would you rather travel and see as many lakes as you can in Indiana?  You can fish 8 total events from any lake series event to qualify for the lake championship as well.  Limit 1 qualification towards the trailer drawing mentioned above.

    • This event will be our largest event of the year with the most prize money up for grabs and a Hobie PA 14 360 on the line.

Lake Championship

This is a 2 Day event that will be held on Monroe Lake this year

Why should I qualify for the Lake Championship?

  • This is what all of us look forward to at the end of the season.  Our fishing format means we do not get to see each other as much through the season.  This is a great chance to hang out and meet some of the anglers you've been competing against through the year.

  • On Saturday for the regular season awards we will have a fully catered hot meal that is free to everyone qualified.

  • With close to 100 anglers participating this will be the biggest payout of the year!

  • We will also be doing the random  3 man team tournament on day 1 again this year.  This was a big hit last year!

  • Someone will be taking home the $2500 credit towards a custom kayak trailer from FINCO!

  • We will also be drawing for the Hobie Passport as part of our Hobie Hammer competition!

  • Last but not least the winner will be taking home a brand new Hobie PA 14 360 from Sun Valley Sport and Hobie!
