Where should you start tournament fishing?
Updated: Feb 18
Tournament fishing is a great way to interact with anglers of the same mindset. In my case, I started with club opens (20-30 boats with 50$ entry fees). You can usually find a huge list of clubs you can join if you like online in your area. In Michigan, the DNR posts all public and private tournaments on their website, you can get the name of directors/contact info there too. Then, you can usually make a presence in the local community and just expand from local tournaments, to 70+ boat tournaments on the bigger waters.
