NSDAF will be there both days looking for tagged and marked fish as a part of their ongoing study.

We will be running a new and very high tech live weigh-in display system, created by LunkerTrunk. This is really going to improve our weigh-in show and keep the anglers informed as well as maximize sponsor/angler exposure.

We will be giving away approximately $20,000 in prizes this weekend, of which $8000.00 will be awarded by draw. You really have a great chance of winning big with the ABO no matter where you finish.

We will be having a breakfast for purchase at the campground canteen, this takes place on Saturday morning from 5:30 until 6:30 AM. This is a great way to start your day and help support the campground.
