Tomorrows Anglers Fish Quest tournament is designed to allow kids the opportunity to experience tournament style fishing utilizing tournament anglers, fishing club members, and experienced anglers as volunteer captains. You do not have to be a guide, just an angler with patience and understanding.
The tournament is set-up for kids ages 9-17. Each child must be accompanied by a legal parent/guardian acting as a bystander only. We allow a maximum of 4-5 people per boat: captain, legal guardian and young angler(s). Time on the water will be approximately 5-6 hours. If you are a captain who wants to mentor a certain child(friend/relative) you will need to fill out both forms. Their parent/legal guardian will need to be present at launch to sign off and approve the event.
Each child will be allowed to bring in 3 fish to take up on stage at time of weigh-in. Any other fish caught will be CPR (Catch, Picture and Release). You will be using two sources to track all fish, the Fish Donkey App and a score card. All fish will be scored with the length to weight conversion system and the captains and anglers will be interviewed on stage. Prizes for all, everyone’s a winner!
All captain applications will be assigned on a first come first serve basis. All anglers will be picked by drawing unless they are attached to a captain at registration. You will be notified prior to the event of the name and age of the angler(s) fishing with you. Every person within the boat during the tournament will be required to wear a U.S. Coast Guard approved PFD when under power. It will be the responsibility of the “captain” to supply a PFD for everyone onboard their vessel. Kids have been asked to bring a lifejacket if they own one.
