2019 Otter Street/BOB Tourney APPLICATIONS ARE HERE!!

Its still winter, but we’re looking towards summer already! Our Walleye Tournament will be held over Father’s Day weekend, like years past – June 15th & 16th.

A couple of notable details for this year:

  • NEW: There’s a questionnaire included in the application – you and your partner need to fill this out and include it when you send your application back in!

  • We’ll accept 335 teams this year. This tournament fills up (and quickly) so, you’ll want to get your application in as soon as the entry window allows!
  • Speaking of entry time-frames..no applications post-marked prior to March 15th 2019 will be accepted.
  • Confirmation letters will be e-mailed out to teams entered to confirm entry and team number
