The contest includes two age groups (age 16 and up and 15 and under) and prizes will be awarded for the two longest catches for walleye, northern, crappie, perch, bass and bluegill.

Registration forms to take part in the tournament and for a chance to win door prizes are available at the Sportsman’s Club shack on Willow Lake at Boyle’s Resort.Fish registration begins at 9 a.m. and any ties will go to the first fish registered. 

Food and refreshments will be available during the event. Even those who don’t want to fish in the contest are encouraged to stop by for a shot at winning a number of door prizes donated by local businesses. 

Winners of the Willow Region Sportsman’s Club annual Gun Raffle will also be drawn at 3 p.m. Five premium guns and cash prizes will be given away.  Tickets can be purchased at Boyle’s Resort up until the time of the drawing.
