The Recycled Fish Hardwater Open Tournaments are tournament events to support stewardship through head-to-head combat on the ice.
Funds raised at the tournaments benefit Recycled Fish, but what makes the events special is the camaraderie and fun.
A new tournament we just announced this year is the Angling Masters Hardwater Open. This tournament is different than our other Hardwater Opens. It works through the Angling Masters website and you can Fish When you want, Where you want, for What you want and win! It Is perfect for all the fishermen out there who want to get ‘On Ice’ , have some hot fun, and join our cause.
The schedule of events at the Okojobi Hardwater Open and the Big Creek Hardwater Open tournaments goes something like this.
Saturday at noon a hot lunch is served right on the ice to anglers during who are pre-fishing. While donations are welcome, your tournament registration makes you eligible to join for lunch and telling lies. This is always a good time to see friends and make new ones.
Saturday night an indoor “Ice Bash” event serves as the mandatory rules meeting for the next day’s tournament, but door prizes and a silent auction keep the excitement really high. Stewardship Tips during this gathering help anglers learn the latest on how to be good stewards of our waters.
Sunday’s tournament is the pinnacle event with a blastoff shortly after sunrise, weigh-ins in the early afternoon. Anglers are welcome to retain legal fish although a release pit is provided for anyone who wishes to release their catch alive.
We invite you to register for either tournament or both. Come join us at our On Ice Tour for hot fun and cool prizes.
