BECTT Information

All registered fisherman may also elect to participate in the Big Trout Contest. To be eligible, each participant must contribute an additional $10.00 prior to the start of the tournament. The qualified participant catching the largest tagged trout (2016 BECTT Tags) will not only receive the sponsored amount for the trout caught, but will also receive a Trophy and a large percentage of the funds collected for the Big Trout Contest.

Additional place winners in the contest will receive cash awards as well. The trout must be checked-in to the Headquarters in live condition as determined by Tournament Judges. The winners will be determined by the length of tagged trout. Total Big Trout payout will be 50% of what is brought in. The total Big Trout payout in 2015 was $1,435.00 Multiple Winners!
