Here’s how it works:
Register online at AnglingMasters.com/DesMoines. Set up a “cabin” on the website, and get your special contest measuring tape. You can order online or pick it up at Scheel’s in Des Moines (at the Customer Service Desk).
Registration is just $25 per person for the whole year, and a portion of proceeds benefit Recycled Fish.
You can fish every day, once a week, or just one time from April 16 – Sept. 2. Fish caught in another contest (such as a bass tournament) are eligible in this event also, so it’s a great way to ‘up the ante’ if you’re already fishing competitively.
If traditional tournaments aren’t your thing but you’ll be out fishing with family, friends, or by yourself – here’s a way to add a chance to not only catch fish, but win prizes at the same time!
Fish any public waters in Iowa for your choice of species:
Largemouth Bass, Smallmouth Bass, Walleye, Channel Catfish, Crappie or Northern Pike
When you catch a fish, you take a few photographs of it on the measuring tape with a digital camera.
(This brook trout caught in a previous AMI event set a world record!)
When you get home, you log onto your “cabin” on the Angling Masters website, upload your photos with details on your catch, and your fish are awarded a score.
Is it tougher to catch a 16” bass or a 16” walleye? The website has it all worked out!
The “catch of the day” each day is good for a September fish-off for the $500 Scheels Shopping Spree, the angler with the best three fish each week wins a Berkley Tackle Pack and a chance to fish off for the title of Des Moines Grandmasters Cup Champion and a Canadian fishing trip for two.
