How It Works
Use our website to HOST and publicize your tournament.

Download the App
Your participants will join and pay online. Sponsors from our database might become interested in your progress.
Fisherman use the photo app to record catches and submit them for verification. The Leaderboard can be viewed throughout the day.
Specialized technology helps authenticate fish, prevents cheating, and enforces tournament rules. The tournament director verifies leaderboard results.
Protect Your Fishery
Traditional tournaments are a thing of the past.
Our services protect the fish in your lake while making it easier to run a tournament.
Tournaments of the Future
Our Digital Platform Changes the Boundaries of Space & Time
Set up a tournament that lasts an hour or a year. You could even create a month long tournament and ask your participants to fish any one day out of the month, then just use the app to verify the results.
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.
Limit fishing to a specific lake or allow participants to fish any lake in the state, the country, or anywhere in the world.
Teams & 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.
We are changing the world of tournament fishing.

About the Founders
Darren Amundson - Cofounder, Marketing, CEO/CT. BSEE from U of Minnesota and MBA from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology: "I grew up camping and fishing in Northern Minnesota and I have always loved the outdoors. Give me cool, clear water, and a bent rod and I am a happy person. From the start of my career, I knew that I wanted to run my own business. I began by working as an engineer for several years before studying new ventures at M.I.T. Since then, I have started 4 companies. My first three companies have been related opportunities in the medical field, where we used technology to improve old business models. FishDonkey is similar in a lot of ways. We are using mobile technology to change the way fishing tournaments operate. It's easier for our customers and it's better for the environment. Our product is something I believe in, it's something that I have been working toward for a long time, and it is something I truly care about. The future of fishing looks bright and I am happy to be a part of a product that has so much potential to change the world of tournament fishing." (The photo is my friend Abel fishing some saltwater with a fly rod, not me.)

We Make Fishing Tournaments Sustainable
We love the outdoors and we love fishing. We strive to create products and services that make fishing sustainable and allow us to enjoy nature while leaving our natural resources as good or better than they were when we found them.
Catch & Release
Running a "kill" tournament or gathering all the biggest fish and transporting them to one end of the lake for a weigh-in is going to become a thing of the past. We will help you run a competitive fishing event, successfully benefit your brand, your charity or cause, and immediately return all fish to their natural environment.
