Entry Fees: $20 for an individual; $30 for a family*
Registration: All participants must register online. There will be no in-person registration or walk up registration.
COVID-19: In order to secure our permits with Curecanti and Gunnison County, we must abide by all Federal, State, and Gunnison County Covid-19 regulations. We greatly appreciate your help and understanding as we must adjust a few things this year.  Please wear a mask at weigh-in and observe the social distancing designations at the weigh-in area.
Weigh-in Waves: We have been granted permission to have up to 200 participants, but we must break everyone up into four separate groups of 50 per county regulations. Consequently, we will have four separate waves for weigh-in. Final results will be emailed to all the contestants so that the winners can claim their prizes. 
Door Prizes: We will pass out door prizes for each group of 50 at their respective weigh-in time. After you have completed weigh-in and collected any door prizes, please clear the weigh-in area so that we can properly sanitize and prepare for the next wave of weigh-ins.
Rules: All contestants must have a valid CO fishing license. All local and state fishing regulations apply. Ice fishing only. You may fish anywhere on Blue Mesa Reservoir with safe ice.
You may begin fishing on your honor at the time you are assigned. Please only weigh-in with your group and at your assigned time. Fish will be weighed by tournament officials only.
Prizes: will be awarded in three categories 
  • Top winner in most weight (any two fish per individual or family unit but no lake trout, total length will determine winner in case of a tie).
  • Top winner in most species caught (all species of fish are eligible – except lake trout over 22 inches. At least three different species required to win category. Total length will determine winner in case of a tie.)
  • Top winner in heaviest lake trout under 22 inches.
Tournament officials will have the final decision regarding all rules and winners. First Baptist Church or Sport Fish Colorado will not be held liable for any incidents or injuries occurring during the tournament.
All registrations fees will be awarded in cash prizes.
Cash prize amounts will be determined by the number of contestants.
