        The Tug is the Drug.

Getting Started is easy.

Simply show up and be ready to fish. We start fishing at the listed time so it is best to be there at least 30 minutes early the first time, to sign in and get familiar with everything. We like everyone on the water 10 minutes early. We finish 6 hours later and weigh in.

Annual Club dues are $15 which can be paid at your first tournament. Club Dues cover Awards and Tournament Permits where required. It is $15 to compete for 6 hours. 80% is paid back that day and 20% is put aside for the Classic at year's end. All tournament money is paid out by year end.

The club does not pay launch fees. Anglers cover their own expenses. All lakes with Praireview Township launches (Gull, Pine, Crooked)
along with Gun Lake have launch fees.

There is an optional Big Bass pot you can enter for $5, if there are 2 anglers in the boat both would have to enter, one angler cannot enter alone.

Remember: Have a current fishing license and an annual DNR window sticker or passport license plate sticker for future lakes.
Have a BumpStick to measure your fish. Must be 14"! When in doubt bring it in and ask for Ed, Justin or Don to confirm before weigh-in.
Test your boat out before showing up. Bring a watch, some water and maybe a rainsuit.

Please take time to read  Club Rules.  It took us 30 years to write them, it will take less than 15 minutes to read them and will answer most questions you may have.

Any other questions our phone numbers are at the top of this page. Thank you for your interest.
