Fifty prizes will be awarded in the adult division of this year's tournament. The top prize will be a 2008 Chevy Silverado 4x4 pickup truck, valued at $28,000.

There will also be a youth division, for those ages 15 and under. The top two prizes in the youth division will be Nintendo Wii entertainment systems.

Those who pre-register for the tournament will be entered in a drawing for a $1,000 Outdoor Expeditions guide service package. This is a catch-and-release format tournament.

Gander Mountain will again serve as the main sponsor for the tournament. Last year's tournament winner was James Moe of Roberts, who took home a 2007 Ford F-150 pickup truck as the tournament's top prize. He won the tournament by catching a 2.7-pound northern pike.
