The Great River Golden Reel Fishing Rodeo

Tournament Organizers Announce Two Additional Fishing Categories To Be Added To The Great River Golden Reel Fishing Rodeo, Biggest Bluegill & Biggest Crappie!!
Tournament organizers have decided to add Biggest Bluegill & Biggest Crappie to the optional fishing categories to increase the chances for anglers to take home some cash. That makes over a dozen different fishing categories and prize levels that angler’s will have the opportunity to compete in!
In addition, the tournament’s activities have grown to include a Fisherman’s (Goes Without Saying) Liars Contest and a Catfish Nugget Recipe Cook-Off. Both events will present awards for the best tasting catfish nugget recipe and the most outlandish fisherman’s tale! Additional activities throughout the day will include a Fishing Tackle/Nautical Swap Meet, a kids casting contest, face painting and a Mystery Fish Contest where spectators will be given the opportunity to guess the weight and what species of fish will be weighed in last at the close of the tournament to win a prize. All of the tournaments events are open to the public with everyone invited to participate in the festivities.
If there is only one tournament you fish all year, this has to be the one!
Early bird anglers are already registering for this summer’s Great River Golden Reel Fishing Rodeo on the Mississippi River in Burlington Iowa. The tournament will bring anglers and their families together for great food, fun and fishing.
Scheduled for Saturday, August 11th, 2012, this one day, family-oriented, fishing tournament will offer both the competitive and casual fisherman a crack at an estimated $10,000 in cash & prizes. Reasonable entry fees, great cash prizes, top notch hospitality and fun activities for anglers of all ages will set this event apart from other area tournaments. With a variety of eligible species such as channel & flathead catfish, large & smallmouth bass, bluegill, and crappie and more than a dozen ways to win, The Great River Golden Reel Fishing Rodeo has plenty to offer anglers of all skill levels. Everything about this event is aimed towards being fishermen friendly so tournament anglers can enjoy the incredible fishing resources on the Mississippi River while competing against fellow anglers. If catching a big catfish, bass, bluegill, or crappie is a thrill for you there is no better time or place to make it happen. If you are planning on fishing this event, spread the word!
