2019 Naucratius Big Lake Charity Fishing Tournament (Holland)
Hosted by The Order Of Naucratius – West Michigan and Community Action House
Cost: $50 (non-refundable)
Shotgun Start at 6:00 am at the Holland Pier-head.
Pull lines at Noon.
Weigh in at 1pm.
This tournament has been set up to address hunger in the Holland area. All funds will go to ONWM. All fish donated will go to Community Action House Kitchen (Holland).
Our sponsors have made their donations with the understanding that the anglers are donating their fish and then get to participate in a great raffle. Our hope is that all fish will be donated to The Order of Naucratius so that we can process and distribute to Community Action House.
If you are not in line by 1:00 pm your team will not qualify for any prizes.
We will fish predicted seas of 1-2′ or less. (or game day call). In the event that the tournament is cut short due to weather, the weigh-in will be held 45 min after the cancellation and points will be awarded. If small craft advisories are in effect we will not fish. Sunday, August 26, will be the makeup date if weather prohibits us from fishing Saturday. If both dates are cancelled due to weather, we will still hold the raffle and there will be no refunds for the registration (but we promise we will put the funds to good use. This is our only fundraiser for the year).
There will be TWO raffles at the weigh-in:::::
