Run tournaments by length, weight or length translated to weight. Run Multi-Day tournaments (Day 1 + Day 2 + Day 3).
Keep participants honest with anti-cheating technology and boat video check-ins while allowing participants to start from the boat launch of their choice.
Leagues & Clubs
Set up a weekly or monthly tournament for your team practices or club event. When you want to run the same event again, just use the "re-host" feature and pick your new dates.
Fishing clubs can track their entire league and the app will automatically track the overall leaders.
Tournaments are easier to manage and cover larger geographical areas. This enables businesses to run and manage promotional tournaments that last all summer, all winter, or all year.
Coupon and promotional codes are available. Tie the tournament into your retail channel.
Fish when and where you want to fish!
Set up a tournament that lasts an hour or a month or pick specific fishing times during a month: weekly leaders, daily leaders, random winners, so many options
Run Any Style Tournament
Our bracket-style fishing where participants face off head to head are a huge hit with anglers. Run it with a stinger of 2 fish and the tournament is very easy to run while participants are always just one fish away from taking the lead.
Grand slam tournaments where the anglers fish for the largest fish of any three species. These are very exciting as an angler.
Mixed bag tournaments where the angler fish for a total of many different species.
Team tournaments, points tournament, we can run almost any type of tournament with live leaderboards and our patented anti-cheating technology (TM).
Catch and record any size fish. Immediate release allows you to ignore the slot limits.
Anger's don't have to be back (and race across the lake) at a certain time. The ability to enter fish automatically starts and stops at a defined time.
Use video to record the immediate release of live healthy fish. This eliminate the delayed mortality that exists when fish are kept in a livewell and then released after a live weigh-in.
Our app is a proven and accepted in the fishing industry
