Freshwater Tournament Fishing


Freshwater fishing tournaments

Anybody looking to test their freshwater fishing skills against others can choose to enter a freshwater fishing tournament. Prizes are generally awarded based on the weight or length of the fish caught, which means having true expertise can reap real rewards.
Both catch and release and weigh-in type tournaments are held, with competitors using particular techniques and equipment to target specific types of fish that are likely to secure them success.
Many tournaments have specific rules and regulations to ensure fair play, as well as assuring that local fish populations are protected and maintained.
