State Tournament Format

This is an open tournament with entry available only, but to all, TBF of Nebraska members. There are two competition divisions, boater and co-angler, with separate prize pools for each division. Boaters compete against boaters, and co-anglers compete against co-anglers. If you enter as a boater, you are guaranteed to fish out of your boat. Co-anglers are assigned to a boater by draw each of the two days of competition. Co-angler entries are limited to the number of boater entries received.

NEW for 2019 – 3 different tournaments to fish to qualify for the 2019 District 08 Semi-finals to be held at Big Stone Lake located on the South Dakota /Minnesota border in September.

New for this year the normal 2-day State Tournament is changing to two 1-day qualifiers and also adding a third qualifier at Lake McConaughy. This should be an unique change that should add something for everyone’s fun.

Additionally there are also the Open Team and Cystic Fibrosis tournaments at Mozingo as normal.
