2022 Big Bite Baits Fishathlon

What is the Fishathlon?

The Fishathlon (pronouced fish-ath-lon) is an analogy to a Decathlon (pronounced dih-kath-lon), an athletic contest composed of 10 different events. Only in this event, you have to catch 10 different fish on 10 different baits! This is a great excuse to get outside and fish, and it just might introduce you to some baits and techniques you haven't tried. Plus, you could earn an exclusive hat only available to Fishathlon finishers! We encourage friendly competition for this event, get your fishing buddies to participate and track your scores on the leaderboard to see how you stack up.
