(You will also find a complete list of rules on this site.) Identifiers may be picked up at Blue Mountain Outfitters as early as 5:15 am Sunday, September 24th. (Not available online, or ahead of time.)
The tournament encompasses all waters of the Susquehanna River and its tributaries; all casts must be made between 6:45 am and 3:00 pm. All anglers MUST be checked in to the tournament director or designee by 4:00 pm at Blue Mountain Outfitters in order to be eligible for any prizes or cash awards.
One angler will win a 2017 Wilderness Systems Radar 115 Kayak with Helix Pedal Drive, courtesy of Wilderness Systems and Blue Mountain Outfitters. All anglers who register a limit of fish by a certain undisclosed time will be eligible for this prize, through a random drawing which will be held at the end of the ceremony. THE PRIZE WINNER MUST BE PRESENT TO WIN! If not present, the drawing will continue until someone wins this prize.
Entry fee is $40. Payouts for placings 1 through 5 will be as follows from the pool of $30 from each angler’s entry fee: 1st: 45%, 2nd: 25%, 3rd: 15%, 4th: 10% & 5th: 5%. Five dollars from each angler’s entry fee will go to pay for the TourneyX administration fee. The remaining $5 will be divided between PayPal fees for running the tournament, and the Lunker pot, which will receive the balance.
Prizes donated by various businesses will be featured in the Tournament Facebook Group “2017 Blue Mountain Outfitters Fall Smallmouth Kayak Fishing Tournament”. (Keep up with the donations on this Facebook page as the event approaches, as more will be added ongoing.) The prize trove will be awarded to participants in the order of their placing in the tournament at the awards ceremony. In addition, other special prizes will be awarded to allow anglers multiple chances. (Categories will include first to hit a random length of individual fish, first to hit a random combined length, random entry times, and others at the Tournament Director’s discretion.)
Hope to see you there, and Good Luck!
