curious as to where weigh in stations will be recognized? Have a few good ice honey holes around the state, would love to be able to get into this

Their website has the weigh stations noted. If you know of any locations - bait shops, etc. - that might be interested, I believe there is still time to join in.

We have added several new weigh-in sites, making 34 total at this time. We have plans to add up to 6 more this year if available. We are open to suggestions for locations (tackle/bait shops and retail stores only for now). We will also be announcing many new additions to the prize structure for this year's event next month when registration opens at most of the weigh-in locations. Online registration is available now.
