A guide is NOT required, but if you hire a guide, your will be entered into the GUIDED division. Each team is responsible for providing its own boat, fuel, fishing tackle, bait, and refreshments and lunch for Saturday while fishing. Teams are also responsible for securing a guide, if they choose to use one.AWARDS

These will be available at the Friday night Check-In party. If you have any questions, address them Friday night with Mason or Jill. This is a fundraising event.
