We are excited to announce that thanks to an anonymous benefactor, this season the team which catches the biggest fish (by length) of the overall series will win a $1000 cash prize named in honor of a soon to be announced individual which has had a large positive impact on the striped bass fishery on Smith Mountain Lake - who's efforts have helped to ensure that we have this great resource to enjoy today.
More details to come but if the Humminbird Team of the Year prize package wasn't enough to entice you to fish the full series to best your chances then perhaps this will help you clear your calendar

A few notes to add....
- you do NOT have to have been entered in the optional Big Fish Pot in a given tournament to be eligible for the overall Big Fish prize
- however.... at least one member of the team must be present at the April Tournament Awards Ceremony - you don't have to have fished in April but you have to have a team member present at the awards - else the award goes to the team that caught the next largest fish.
Wanted to pop this to the top again to remind everyone that there is a $1000 striper swimming around out there. The team that catches the longest striper of the overall series will win the Doug Hill Preservation Award and a $1000 cash prize.
Big Fish is currently with Team Lawrence and Matthew's 38" striper. Great fish but I have a feeling it can be beat. Two more shots at it - one this weekend.
Still some slots for those that have been hedging - sign up today!

We had 4 citations checked-in during the March event, but it's going to take more thanks citation to take Big Fish. But we do have a new leader for the Doug Hill Preservation Award for big fish of the series - Team Wahooligans with a 38.25" striper
