The Charlevoix Area Trout Tournament kicks off with a captains’ meeting on Thursday, June 9, before a weekend of fishing fun. The fun comes with more than bragging rights—each of the tournament’s five divisions offers a $1,000 prize and trophy for first place, as well as monetary prizes for the other top 20 finishers. Though it’s called the Trout Tournament, entrants will face off lake trout, salmon, steelhead, brown trout, and walleye. The competition begins at 5am Friday morning and ends at noon on Sunday. All fish must be a minimum of 20 inches, and your catch will need a verified witness. In-person registration ($35 for adults; $10 for ages 6-14; free for 5 and under) is available Thursday and Friday in East Park in downtown Charlevoix, or you can register online and read up on the rules and event details at fishcharlevoix.com.
