The tournament is June 6-9, 2019, with thousands of Skeeter owners expected to enjoy a weekend of fishing, fellowship and the chance to win up to $200,000 in cash and prizes. The Skeeter Lake Fork Guide Team, the hunt for the famous “Rubber Ducks” on the lake for prizes, and delicious Texas barbecue are all part of the fun. Headquarters will be Lake Fork Marina in Alba, Texas.

Topping the list of prizes is a fully rigged Skeeter FX20 bass boat powered by a Yamaha SHO® 250 outboard, with Skeeter Built® trailer, T-H Marine hydraulic jack-plate , Humminbird® electronics and a Minn-Kota® trolling motor, and dual Power-Pole® Blades.. The package will be awarded to the contestant weighing the biggest bass of the tournament.

Overall biggest bass below the slot limit wins a Yamaha Wolverine® X4 Side-By-Side. Hourly big bass prizes will be awarded too, with 130 chances to win from first to 10th place each hour of the Saturday and Sunday competition.

Participants can support underprivileged children by bringing a toy for the chance to win a Yamaha Kodiak® 450 EPS Utility ATV.

The tournament includes a Junior Division and Top Lady Division. The Junior Angler Division (13 & Under) will be awarded to the top 4 overall biggest fishing weighed in by Junior Anglers. Note: Junior Entrance is $30. Keep in mind, this division does not qualify for the overall big bass over and under the slot, or any hourly cash prizes. In the Top Lady Division, not only are the ladies eligible for the Overall and hourly Big Bass awards, the 1st thru 3rd places will be awarded to the highest finishing Lady Anglers.

Bass fishing on one of the nation’s premier bass fisheries is the top draw. Lake Fork has more Toyota® ShareLunker Program entries than any other lake in the state. Lake Fork leads the list with 260 largemouth caught weighing 13 or more pounds, and the East Texas impoundment continues to uphold its reputation as a big bass factory.

By tournament time the summertime bass patterns will be in full swing. Anglers can expect the better of two worlds with an early morning topwater bite, followed up by prime fishing for big bass in deeper water during the midday and afternoon.

Lake Fork was impounded in 1980 and encompasses 27,690 acres and 315 miles of shoreline. Although it serves as a water supply reservoir for Dallas, it is most known for the fishing. Lake Fork has produced 15 of the top 20 heaviest largemouth bass ever caught in the state of Texas. 

Entry fee is $120 per angler for the two days of competition; this also includes an Official Skeeter Owner’s Tournament t-shirt.
