     It's almost time again. The 5th Annual 5 Bridges Tournament will be held on May 20th, 2017. YES 110%  payout at the least

So we don't have a repeat of last year ( heavy current, weed mats, and downpours) this years will be held at the Lincoln Park Lagoon rowing canal instead of Joliet.

Yet again, this is a BIG 5 EVENT, only your biggest 5 Carp count as your total

I'm not going to make this complicated, $50.00 entry fee, $10.00 optional big fish pot.

1st Place 60% of entries, & 2017 Silver Eagle Silver Coin 1oz. pure silver

2nd Place 30% of entries.

3rd Place 20% of entries.

Biggest single carp, 100% of optional Big fish pot

1st fish prize to be announced ( 75.00 value)

Last fish prize to be announced (75.00 value)

I believe I will cap this event at 16 anglers, so sign up early!

More to come, keep checking back.

Peg draw at 6am sharp, fishing 7am - 5pm. Depending on # of anglers I might bring some food and the BBQ grill.

With a look at the long term weather forecast, my calculations for water temps, air temps, and proper attitudes of 16 anglers we are going to have a amazing bite on the 20th.

Also the menu for May 20th will depend on the weather. Menu will be announced on the 17th of May. Sunny and mild= hamburgers and hotdogs, Chilly and or rain= soup or chili and sandwiches. All menu items are free of charge to all anglers and their wife's , kids or whoever they may bring. Please no alcohol (at least don't let anyone see it).

May 20th cant come soon enough for me.
