Smaller items will be mailed out, larger items can be picked up or will be delivered to your nearest weigh-in location for pick-up - timing will depend upon my travels around the state.

This year's event is going to be nothing short of amazing! The prize structure is unreal and packed with hubs and shanties, electronics, new gear, etc. Be the first angler to sign-up at any shop and score a free ice combo, anglers 2-? will also receive a bonus gear item! With shelters (or other large ticket item) raffles at every weigh-in location (60+ locations), anglers can score entries from the following:

1) enter at the shop

2) stop in during the event (gain an entry every day you stop in)

3) Fulfill the in-store promotions (inquire at the shops)

**General rule: one entry per angler per location per day, plus additional entrees per day based on store promotions.

 

Anglers that register online will be entered into two drawings:

1) The first 100 anglers go into a drawing for a shelter.

2) All online entrants go into a drawing for a power auger.

 

The full prize structure will be released around December 1st as we introduce a sponsor per day and their sponsorship! Stay tuned!!

There are currently 740 anglers in the 2018 Winter Classic event, just shy of the next bump in the payout. There are still 2 weeks left in the event including another round of door prizes to be drawn this Friday, and additional prizes to be won at the Dinner Awards Ceremony and Season Celebration Party on March 24th at the Bonnie Castle Resort in Alexandria Bay, NY. If you are planning to attend the event (where there will be all Top 3 fish on display, raffles, door prize drawings, prime rib dinner, vendors/dealers, entertainment, and more), you must register by March 4th at:

Any questions, feel free to ask! I'll be posting all the door prizes to be won on the website soon! Anglers can still register and get in on the action - just make sure to register before 7am on the first day you wish to start entering fish.

Yeah, unfortunately next week looks like we may need to start getting the bullhead gear ready! But this tourney accounts for warm-ups and mild winters in that you can fish via any legal means: ice, open water, shore & stream, etc.
