NextFish 3-Day Melee: Kayak Challenge (2/15-2/17)

February 14th 11:00 pm - February 17th 11:00 pm Central, 2019 • XLF (unlimited)
Welcome to the NextFish 3-Day Melee! This tournament is a weekend tournament, focusing on 72 hours of open battle between the anglers and the fish. It's a match of total inches, with a minimum length submission of 10".  Yes, 10". Load up the leaderboard, and submit your heart out!

Keeping it as real as possible, we're focused on leveling the playing field so that FL, CA and TX don't have an advantage over the rest of the participating Country. 

Total Inches is the Grand Prize. 

There is an additional Side Pot for Big Bass, separate from the main entry fee, if you should feel froggy enough to enter! 

Additionally, there will be other random prizes available, to be named VERY soon!

Angler with the most inches, after 72 hours, wins. There's no cap on submissions. Remember to make your catches count. 

NextFish Judges will run a minimum of two sets of eyes over each submission, cataloging each image to make sure there's no dual submissions and that each point in our submission articles are covered.

To be as fair as possible, our timezone of choice is Central, however, with our 72-hour approach, you'll have plenty of time to lock up the morning and evening bites in your respective timezones.
