In 2006 Midwest Sportsman will host a (3-day) classic -- this is necessary because of the number of teams that we’re expecting to qualify for the 2006 National Classic.

The only other option is to cut the percentage of teams advancing to the classic, and from what we hear from the fishermen, they want the chance to go to the classic and maybe get eliminated there, or possibly advance to a final top 100.


We will use multiple launch and weigh-in sites for the first two days of the classic tournament. All scales will be certified before these tournaments. The teams will fish on days 1 and 2 (Wednesday, October 4 and Thursday, October 5). The field will be broken up into 100-150 teams per launch site (final figures will depend on actual qualifiers for the 2006 classic.

The top 100 teams from all the weigh-in sites (total weight for the two days) will advance to day 3 (October 6, 2006) for the finals. All the teams on day 3 will start with zero (0) weight for the final day.

With an increase of the Classic entry fee from $120.00 to $150.00 per team, (this is only $15.00 per man), this will provide enough extra money so that all 100 teams in the “Top 100” will get paid.

New pay-back schedules will be on the web site showing how much each team will receive (1 through 100), based on a field of 400 plus teams.
