TTN-Tournament Trail North
« on: March 11, 2016, 10:38:26 AM »

Hi all!

As the topic explains there will be a tournament trail for Lake Superior this year. Being the first year we kept it relatively small but hopefully with sponsors etc... it will grow and possibly include 1 or more northern lake Michigan ports for 2017.

-Trail will begin in with SSFAs Spring Shoot out and then will move to Munising and then the kings of the lake will be crowned after SSFAs Fall Classic in Marquette. Being that Munising is 2 days we decided to split the days JUST FOR TTN purposes. Meaning that points will be awarded after the standings after day 1 and also after day 2 top finishers (not the totals after the 2 days of the main tournament).

-King of the lake will be awarded to each team that finishes highest in points in both salmon and trout. Points will be awarded from 1st-10th with first being 1000 points and down to 100 points for 10th. Not all tournaments pay to 10th place but we will track the results for TTN purposes.  ***Teams may choose to fish either live release or dead in the Fall classic and if you choose to fish both only one can be used towards your TTN total. Points are also awarded and stay with the BOAT. So, if you plan on fishing with other people in each event plan accordingly.

-The cost will be $120 per class ($20 per event) with 100% pay out and MUST be paid before SSFAs spring shootout. As of now it will be winner take all for each class with the a guaranteed check of a minimum of $1,000 for king of the lake in salmon and also for trout assuming enough boats enter the trout. First place will also receive a big trophy. The rest of the top 5 will receive a trophy/prizes as well.

Checks can be mailed to me direct or I will be at SSFAs spring meeting.

See you on the water!

I think this is a great idea with opportunity to grow both of these events while still keeping it attractive to the average weekend warrior. Keep in mind the $1000 for first prize is based roughly on 12 boats entering each salmon and trout so there is a chance there might be a handful up for grabs at the fall classic. If the MFD sees a big increase due to this we will be infusing some additional cash from our side alone. Pretty small entry fee with opportunity to win some big money and most of you guys fish all 3 events anyway.

2 great organizations like the SSFA & the MFD working together along with Fish-906 is sure to be a win win. Looking forward to your feedback.

I would assume there will be more boats for salmon than trout so I will guarantee the 1k for the salmon class. If it is short the remainder will be donated through Fish-906. With the good lake trout fishing both in mqt and near shore in Munising its not out of the realm to win the lake trout without finishing in the top in any of the events especially if some of the top finishers aren't entered in the TTN. Same goes for salmon.

Like Bromley said with 3 groups working together is should be a lot of fun. If anyone is interested in donating ill be putting a list together so let me know.


Thanks

Also, another important detail is the top 10 will be awarded to the top 10 entered in the TTN. If the winner in each event isn't entered in the TTN the highest finisher in the TTN will receive the 1000 points and so on.


Good or bad feedback is welcome please.
