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

Fish can be immediately released back to their natural environment.
Set your tournament up online in minutes. We help invite participants from our database, your website, and via email.

Your participants will join and pay online. Participant lists are managed automatically by the app, making it easy to see who has joined.
Fisherman use the app to document 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
Sustain the fishery, bring the excitement of live leaderboards, and make your tournaments easier to run. 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.
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.
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.
We are changing the world of tournament fishing.
