Saturday February 6th (I've checked as many tournament dates as I could and this seems to be the best date)

Here we go fellas!! I'm really excited to be more involved in this event this year. For those who don't know or haven't attended before, this a truly great event with an awesome purpose, and some wonderful people involved.

All year long the viewers and members of the TFF gain knowledge and information at an unlimited rate from the guides on this site, as well as promotional offers at times and great hospitality whenever we frequently visit the communities around these lakes we visit. This event is a way for us to say thank you and provide some revenue back into the lake fork community at a time when they need it the very most. This will be a competitive event and we will name a winner, and the guides take it pretty seriously. However, the awards or prizes given will come solely from sponsor donations, as all money paid into this event will remain in the lake fork community.

Each team will consist of a guide and 1 or 2 clients per boat. Your entry fee is your guide fee, which goes to your guide of course.

We will go with the same schedule as last year as that worked well to share the love to businesses on both sides of the lake. Sign in will be held at Lake Fork Marina at the rusty nail lodge which is on the right side of the road as you come into lfm. Sign in will begin at 7 p.m. on friday Feb. 5th and we encourage all participants to get there with a little time and empty stomach to enjoy some good food and good fellowship at Tiffany's before sign in starts at the lodge. Sign in will go until we're done, if you will be later, then just give me a call and let me know, and if you can't make it friday than ask your guide to stop by to sign your team in. YOUR TEAM MUST SIGN IN FRIDAY NIGHT TO PARTICIPATE as it will be a bit of an undertaking making sure all teams are registered with our weigh-in official.

While you can launch any where you choose, we encourage everybody to come over to get some breakfast at Oak Ridge Marina Sat. morning before we take off. The suggested launch and official weigh in site will be at Oak Ridge Marina.

First cast will be at 7:30 a.m. and last cast at 3:30 p.m., we want everybody back at ramp at 4:00 p.m.

The weigh-in process will work as such, when a member of your team catches a fish regardless of size (slot does not apply) weigh the fish on a hand held scale, take a picture of fish on the scale with weight readable and send picture to weigh-in official. All fish with the exception of those over 24 inches must be immediately released after pic is taken. Please bring in an over for pics if one is caught. Your heaviest 5 fish will count towards your stringer. Once you have caught 5 fish please only send in pics that will cull a smaller fish in your stringer as the weigh-in official will be getting a lot of pics. Pics must be sent as fish are caught and not all at once at the end of the day. Contact info for the weigh-in official will be given at sign in.

At 4:00 p.m. we will gather at Oak Ridge Marina to give results and will have some giveaways at that point.

Thanks to all who participate and those who give a helping hand!

Any questions or if your interested in participating as a sponsor or in any other supporting capacity, please reach me via pm on here or call anytime.

Heads up everyone hangs out a little around registration Friday, but it gets REALLY social back at LFM Rusty Nail after weigh-in Saturday.

We'll offer $40/night rooms at Lake Fork Resort for the tournament. We have already finished remodeling half of our rooms and should have the rest done by the end of this month. We've added flat screen TV's, mini fridges, coffee makers, microwaves, and new beds!
