ATTN:  Okoboji Team Trail tournament POSTPONED to June 28th. 

At the direction of Iowa DNR, we will be postponing the first Team Trail event until June 28.  The Tournament remains in Okoboji, launching from Emerson Bay. 


Anglers, we have received lots of questions and health concerns about the May State IBN tournament.


We have been in contact with PDC and have agreed that this tourney will be rescheduled to September 16-18. 


Hope this works with everyone’s schedule. Stay healthy.
