Every Tuesday night starting May 4th with End of the Year Classic on September 14th.
Launch Point: Foolery’s N52W35090 W Lake Drive, Okauchee Lake, WI 53069
Because of the new DNR rule which states that a tournament with over 20 boats participating can not fish on the same lake closer than two weeks. The following changes have been implemented in order to stay within the rules.
We have registered the tournament for over 20 boats participating every other week. The following week the tournament will be limited to the first 20 boats.
May 4th, 18th
June 1st, 15th, 29th

Each boat shall be given a number and we will have the boats stay at the buoyed line until their number is next for the Live-well-check.
