Triple fish challenge coming April 22 and 23


It might sound a little fishy — that’s because it is.

Here’s your opportunity to win an Achilles four-person inflatable boat and Yamaha outboard motor.

All you have to do is place first in the 5th Annual Triple Fish Challenge tournament, April 22 and 23.

The place: Banks Lake, boating from Coulee Playland.

Entry fee is $20 for those up to 14 years old, $60 for those 15 years and older.

You can submit your entry form online until midnight April 20, or in person from 5-7 p.m. on Friday, April 21, and registration will continue during boat inspection from 6-8 p.m. on Saturday.

The “triple fish” are smallmouth bass, walleye and rainbow trout.

The boat is the grand prize, but the event offers plenty of lesser prizes. And many, if not most, of the anglers entering in the last four years have taken in far more in prizes than they spent in entry fees.

Prizes will be awarded for the big fish in each species, each day; for total string weight, each day; and for total combined heaviest six fish for the two-day period.

The kickoff is 9 a.m. each day and the weigh-in will be at 3 p.m. each day.

The tournament is put on by the Grand Coulee Dam Area Chamber of Commerce.
