2017 Family Fishing Tournament

Title: Prior Lake Association Family Fishing Tournament
Location: Charlie’s on Prior
Description: The 17th Annual Prior Lake Association Family Fishing Tournament will be held Sunday August 6th from 11:00 – 2:00 in conjunction with Prior Lake’s Lakefront Days community celebration. Once again it will be held at Charlie’s on Prior. The tournament is family oriented and designed to get the entire family out on the lake and give young anglers the opportunity to participate in a relaxed and fun tournament event. We award trophies and nominal cash prizes to the 3 largest fish in each of 5 species and an Open class. We also have a drawing for 3 main door prizes and as many small prizes as we can get. Our goal is to make sure each young angler goes away with at least some small token of their participation. Sign-up starts at 10:30 at Charlie’s
