This tournament is for Togue (Lake Trout) caught in West Grand and Pocumcus Lakes only. No other fish can be entered. All fish entered in the tournament must be caught between 4:00 am Saturday, June 1 and the close of the Tournament at 3:00 p.m. Sunday, June 2.

You must have a valid ticket to have your fish weighed.
Fish will be weighed at the GLS dam in Grand Lake Stream, Maine and an alternate site will be at the Town Building. The weigh in station will be open Saturday 3:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. and Sunday 1:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. All fish entered will be clipped by the officiating biologist to make sure that each fish will only be entered in the tournament once. The entered fish will then be returned to the fisherman. We will have coolers in place to donate the fish to anyone requesting them. Also recipes will be available.
Any fish which might be a contender for one of the five prizes can be retained for a closer examination to ensure that the fish was caught within the tournament time frame and also cut open for stomach contents to be examined to verify its natural weight. The top five winners will be required to sign an affidavit that their winning entries were caught in West Grand and Pocumcus Lakes on June 1 or 2, 2013 and may be subject to interviews by the Judges. Culling or replacing one fish with another will not be allowed. All winning fish may be retained and examined by the Judges and Inland Fish and Wildlife. The decision of the Tournament Judges will be final.
Note: the combined possession limit for togue on West Grand Lake and Pocumcus Lakes is 6 fish and the minimum length limit is 14 inches but only 1 fish can be over 23 inches.
Prizes will be awarded for the first, second & third largest togue. Winners will be ranked by weight. First tiebreaker will be the longest length; second tie breaker will be the earlier time weight. Prizes for the three largest togue are $1000 grand prize for first place, cash prizes for second place and for third place. A fourth prize cash prize will be awarded to the greatest total weight of fish. There will be a special fifth prize. For each fish caught between 14-18 inches there will be an entry ticket in a special drawing. Prize for that drawing will be cash.
