To begin with, we want to thank our family, friends, sponsors and anglers who
made the last two tournament such a wonderful success. The outpouring of
support has exceeded any of our expectations!

We will have food and beverages at the Roe House located on Cove Road following
weigh-in, along with presentation of winners and door prizes.

In the last two years we have collected almost $1200.00 for the SD Army National
Guard. We are hoping to beat that amount this year!

There will be an on-shore briefing at Shelter 3 (location of last year’s weigh in)
beginning at 7:00 AM. The tournament will officially begin at 7:30 with weigh-in at 3:30 PM at Shelter 3. Shelter 3 is located right next to the walk-out fishing pier.

  1.  The tournament is limited to 60 boats​. Each team is limited to 3 fishermen per boat. Any applications received after the 60 boat limit will be returned.
  2. Entry fee is $50.00 per boat​. Please make any checks payable to ‘Julie Roe’.
  3. Each walleye must be a MINIMUM length of 15 inches and maximum length of 20 inches. According to SDGFP regulations, each person may possess 1 walleye exceeding 20 inches. The daily limit is 4 walleye per person.

Only fisherman will be given tickets. You MUST get your ticket in person. Fellow team members CANNOT get a ticket for you and switching tickets for better/grand prizes is not allowed.
  7. ALL rules and regulations by SDGFP must be followed pertaining to vehicles, boats and fishing. Which means each boat must be licensed and all vehicles entering the park must have a valid park sticker/day pass. Team members 16 years and older must have a valid fishing license.

Reminders from Game and Fish we were asked to pass on:

  • Anglers may not import live bait from outside the state, and any bait species used
    should not be released live but instead should be dumped into the trash.
  • A person may not possess, transport, sell, purchase or propagate a State-listed
    Aquatic Nuisance Species.
  • Fishing tournament participants who have had their boat in waters outside of
    South Dakota or in any water bodies known to contain ANS should disinfect their
    boat and trailer before launching in South Dakota waters. You must also drain
    any water out of your boat immediately upon placing the boat on a trailer.
