"Saturday in the Park" All Species Fishing Tournaments - Sat., July 27 at Allen Park, Ottawa, IL
The Illinois Carp Fishing News’ Annual "Saturday in the Park" Allen Park Tournament will be held on Saturday, July 27, 2013 on the Illinois River at Allen Park in Ottawa, Illinois.
There will be two five-hour tournaments. Tournament 1 will be from 7:00 a.m. until noon (6:30 a.m. peg draw).
Tournament 2 will be from 1:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m.
You may use two rods. Three rods will be allowed if there are eight or fewer participants. Fishing locations will be pegged from the bank starting near the totem pole at the park.
Tournament 1 will feature a random peg draw. Tournament 2 will feature a walk-off peg choice in reverse order of your standing in tournament 1. If there are tournament 1 ties, you will draw for order of choice in tournament 2.
Entry is $20 for each tournament. Each tournament is based on total weight captured during the time frame.
The tournament is limited to 17 anglers.
This is a catch and release, all species, total weight event, but you better catch a few carp (common or grass) to win. ??Please post here by Friday, July 26, 2013 to participate.? ??
The awards ceremony for the two tournaments will be at the park's shelter near the flagpole at approximately 6:30 p.m. You must be present to collect any winnings. Tournament pay-out is 50%, 30%, 20% for 1st, 2nd, 3rd. Trophies will also be awarded to the top three finishers in each tournament and to the angler catching the biggest common in each tournament.
There will be a 100% payout of the entry fees. In addition, there will be a $5 big fish pot for each tournament.
I will also include some bait and tackle prizes for a variety of categories (biggest grass carp, smallest fish, etc.):
