The BLT Striper Challenge is excited to announce our 2016 schedule. There will be a "boat captain" AOY bonus provided by the Pottsboro Chamber of Commerce and awarded at the end of the year. The boat captain with the most points at the end of the 2016 season will be awarded the bonus. The boat captain may keep the bonus or split it with his teammates. The points will be awarded based on weight and ranking in each Texoma tournament. We will have additional information posted on our website at www.usafishingtrails.com
