ABOUT THE TOURNAMENT

The 2020 Bernie Parent Virtual Fishing Challenge continues the annual tradition of the Bernie Parent In-Shore Fishing Challenge with considerations to the health and safety of our supporters during Covid-19. This new virtual tournament allows participants to enjoy a month-long tournament rather than one day and also expands angler options beyond in-shore fishing. Anglers can now compete in freshwater, saltwater, in-shore, and off-shore options. Adults and children are encouraged to participate. Anglers will register for the tournament and then submit a fish on the website. One fish equals one entry. Each submission must include a picture of the fish next to their official registration card and ruler. A weekly leaderboard will be posted in each category and final tournament prizes will be announced at the close of the tournament.
