Those competing in the Biggest Catch category must submit a photo of their fish, along with the length of the fish, their name, age and contact information. Those competing for the overall Most Caught award must submit a photo of their one-day total catch, along with their name, age and contact information.

Director of Parks and Recreation, Elizabeth Harrell, said, “Doing this fishing tournament in a virtual format is a little unorthodox, but it will provide a safe environment for everyone to participate. Plus, we have extended it from the traditional one-day event to an entire week of opportunities to fish. We could not hold this event without the support of our corporate partners, Celebration Station, Dallas Regional Medical Center and Bass Pro Shops.”
