Tournaments are a great way to build camaraderie and test your skills against others, not to mention the memories made and the retelling of the one that got away.
SSWA has two types of tournament; a monthly SSWA Angler of the Month contest in which all members are automatically entered and is completely free; and a series of more formalized tournaments during the year, with the emphasis on FUN. See below for more details.
SSWA Angler of the Month Contest:
- No charge
- All members automatically registered
- Prizes provided by the club
- Four target species
- Biggest fish for each species wins a prize
- Submissions also accrue competition points, so even if you don’t have the biggest fish, submit your catch for points!
- Most points at the end of the year determines SSWA Monthly Contest Angler of the Year and SSWA Monthly Contest Youth Angler of the Year
- All entries must be posted on the SSWA Forums

Our Angler of the Year Final Standings!
Congratulations to Shane Shields and Andrew Pelto, our Adult and Youth Anglers of the Year! I’d like to acknowledge Iain Pelto who had a commanding lead throughout most of the year, and if it weren’t for my doubling points in the last 2 months, would probably have easily won. Thanks to all who participated! In 2017, we distributed $1,450 in prizes to our participants. All you have to do is participate! We will start up again in 2018… – Tournament Director, Dave Fladd
