New for the 2023 season - Stars and Stripes has added a Regional Event. How this will work - Same requirements as the Tournament of Champions but this event will be held in the spring of the following year, so if you qualified to fish in the 2023 Championship at Lake Saint Clair, then you qualify to fish the Regional held in 2024. Only other thing is you must be a current member of Stars and Stripes, meaning you must pay your 2024 membership. For next year Spring of 2025 Our goal is to have 2 Regional Events, 1 in Illinois and 1 in Indiana.

***Rule Change***
Since Tackle Shack has a tournament on Wawasee Saturday April 13, 2024, the off limits have changed and will allow anyone fishing the Regional to either fish in the Tackle Shack Tournament or practice fish that Saturday April 13th.
