Win $1,000 Cash in May Fishing Tournament
For the first time ever, the Pelican Lake Resort Association(PLRA) will be having a lake wide walleye fishing tournament! All the resorts and motels on Pelican Lake have joined together to host this tournament and award the winner $1,000. Here are details…
Tournament dates are from May 13-May 31. We are using the app Fish Donkey to record and track all entries. In order to enter the tournament you have to do 2 things. One is download the app “Fish Donkey”. It is free. You also have to stay at a PLRA member lodging establishment. (All resorts, motels, hotels and bed and breakfasts on Pelican Lake are members.)
Any walleye caught on Pelican Lake between May 13 and May 31 can be entered. You must upload 2 photos of the fish and one 15 second video. One photo is of you holding the fish and the other is of the fish against a bump board. The video is of the fish being released. We are using the videos to verify that the fish was caught that day and by releasing it can verify it was live when caught.
Only measurements taken on bump boards will be accepted. Birch Forest Lodge will have a bump board at the resort for anyone to use if needed. Walleye need to have their mouths closed and pressed against the 90 degree fold on the bump board to be measured. The fishermen who enters the longest walleye caught from May 13-31 will be awarded $1,000! Second place will win $300.
In addition to the 2 cash prizes, anyone who enters a walleye over 20 inches in length will be entered in a drawing to win one of 3 $100 gift cards. That’s right, 3 lucky winners will be randomly drawn from all entries of 20 inches or more to win a $100 gift card.
The Fish Donkey app is free, but there is a $4 fee for entering the tournament. All participants who stay at Birch Forest Lodge will have their entry fee paid by Birch Forest Lodge. Stay with us, have everyone enter and someone can win big money! If you have any questions please let us know. You can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org anytime.
