An interesting conversation about fishing tournaments/events broke out at the shop today. The recent VS Surf Shootout turned out really nicely, thinking along those lines, any good "outside the box" ideas for a fishing tournament or event?
The emphasis we're interested in is more about getting people to fish and have fun so good ideas would ideally:
1) encourage people to get out and fish
2) encourage people to fish together
3) encourage people to have fun
4) avoid all the negative stuff that sometimes is associated with fishing tournaments
So kind of the "anti" tournament fishing event if you will.
We have ideas for prizes/rewards, but what I'm interested in is what sort of events would anglers be interested in participating in. Maybe that's a better question, what motivates (or would motivate) you to fish an event? Great prizes, promise of a good time, etc. etc.? Any and all input is greatly appreciated.
