50% of proceeds collected will be paid out in prize money the rest of the money raised is put into the Charlie Best Memorial Fund. Funds are then donated to local area youth clubs. In 2018 we donated $250 to Drummond Area Ice fishing Team and $1000 to Drummond Area School athletes continuing on to college. Previous years we have used money for a skate board park, baseball score board, pitching machine, and a basketball shooting machine. The Best family has been hosting this tournament in conjunction with an annual golf tournament for over 25 years. The family with your support has donated over $30,000.00 to local community schools and clubs. Please come support this event.

All Wisconsin fishing regulations apply.
Everyone gets a cow tag and you must return your cow tag. Cow tag raffle will be drawn after dinner. Everyone will also have a flag to mount to your boat.

This is a fund raiser tournament and it is meant to be fun. There is money that can be won but it is not setup to be a cut throat competition fishing tournament. The start and end of the tournament along with the measuring of big fish is all on the honor system. It is to raise money for youth programs so we would hope that everyone competing is honest and at the end of the day understands it is all in fun. Mike and Charlie Best will be the final judge in any discrepancies. Decisions will be made based on how they feel fit to handle the situation. There will be no rule book used based on how the pro’s would have done it -- the decisions will be made based on what they feel is fair.

May 17 - May 18
