As time goes by and we get a little older, we try to evolve with the changes that go one with our industry and the little part that we have in it. Over the years the The King Of The Lake has changed and implemented many things and raised the standards of many tournaments around the Lake. Like fishing techniques we have tweaked and played with certain tactics to make a good product even better. You never really hit a home run but you hope to chip away and get a step closer year to year.
The one thing that we are very proud of is that we paid more money than we took in with entry fees. We paid out 105% of entries again in 2010! Thank you to our sponsors for helping us out with this.
2012 - THE YEAR OF DIVERSITY
Last year was outstanding with the introduction of the one day Wilson Harbor Invitational. We decided to again turn it up a notch and grown again for the 2012 season. We have partnered with BigJon Tightline shootout. The BigJon Team have had a successful ten year run and this year our fleet of pro tournamnet anglers can compete and test their skills in this (these) one day events. There will be a total of two shootouts, one in June and one in August.
In order to win the overall title and take it away from the 2011 Champs, Royal Flush. You must fish four events, two of whic mst be the two-day events in St. Catherines. The other two scores will be the best two of three one day events. No extra or penalties will be given if you fish all events or only the mandatory events as some may not be able to get into all events due to them being full.
