Have you ever wanted to compete in fishing tournaments, but your life just doesn’t line up with the typical events? Maybe you don’t have a boat and are stuck fishing from the bank. Maybe you work weekends or have family obligations. Maybe your health doesn’t let you fish in that nasty weather. Let’s face it. We all have busy and unique lives.
JML Outdoors Satellite Series. You fish where you want and when you want to compete against other anglers from around your state and/or the country. Our month long tournaments will run January 1 to December 31. With a low $40 per week entry fee you pick when you fish and where you fish as long as you are within the rules of the event.
Membership: $45 per year runs date of purchase to date of purchase. Why the membership? Most tournament circuits keep a portion per entry to cover expenses such as weigh bags, insurance, supplies, etc. This series doesn’t do that. Our judges and administrative costs are paid out of the membership fees. Memberships are good for one year from date of purchase.
Entry Fee: $40 per month per event and pays back a guaranteed top 2 places no matter number of entries. Once we hit 21 entries per weekly event the payback goes to a 1 place paid per 7 entries. 100% of the entry fee’s collected minus the square/paypal fee’s get paid back. Your membership lets you fish any event nationwide.
How it works: You go fish any PUBLICLY ACCESSIBLE body of water (river, lake, park, etc.) during the week of the event(s) you entered. You catch your fish and measure them on an acceptable board (see rules), photograph (see rules) and release the fish. You then email the picture to email@example.com. The fish is then judged and accepted or denied by one of our judges. The longest combined length for a five fish limit is the winner. Ties will be broken by big fish (see rules). We will post weekly standing updates to our jmloutdoors facebook site so you know how you are doing.
Prize Money: Prize money will be paid back through either PayPal or a check mailed no later than two days after the event is over.
We are excited to see where this new series leads and invite you to submit any questions you may have to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will compile a FAQ section out of those questions and add them to the website.
