Tournament Registration

We are excited to announce that this year we are going to increase our field of competition to 60 boats. Along with this change we are also making this a two fish aggregate tournament with a first place payout of $150,000!!! The biggest fish will pay $10,000.

Registration will be open for the 50 boats that participated in 2020 through April 30th. Then the remaining spots will be opened up on Monday, May 10th. We look forward to teaming up with the Troopers KMT again this year as we payout one of the largest purses in king mackerel fishing!

The original 50 boats are guaranteed their spot with a deposit of $2,000 by April 30th. We will open to fill the remaining spots up to 60 boats on Monday May 10th.
