Multi-Species Fishing Tournament
The Shell Knob Chamber of Commerce is sponsoring a multi-species fishing tournament on Table Rock Lake, Saturday May 20, 2017. This is a fun tournament designed for all fishing abilities and ages. Entrants are encouraged to fish with family members or friends. A multi-species tournament is a different type of event intended to attract anglers with interest in the many different species of game fish available on Table Rock Lake.
The take-off and “measure-in” will be held at Kings River Marina south of Shell Knob. Take-off is at 8:00 am and the measure-in will be at the marina at 2:00 pm. Once registered, two-member teams can fish from boats anywhere on Table Rock. There is an entry fee per team as well as an optional 100% payback longest fish pot. Cash prizes will be awarded for the first and second place teams. There will be a drawing after the measure-in for several valuable prizes donated by area businesses.
Species included in the tournament are black bass, white bass, walleye, catfish, crappie and panfish. There is a limited number of fish that can be measured for each species. Winners will be determined by the total length of fish presented at the measure-in. There will be a special award for any team presenting a legal fish from each of the six specie categories.
Registration forms are available at the Shell Knob Chamber office, at area businesses and www.shellknob.com. All tournament rules are included on the registration form.
What might win this tournament- one big catfish, some nice bass, or several panfish? The only way to know is to enter and fish for everything Table Rock has to offer. Spectators are welcome to enjoy the “measure-in” at Kings River Marina on Saturday May 20 at 2:00 pm.

I understand that this is coming up quickly. We had a great opportunity to get this together and completed before Memorial Weekend and our summer season. It will benefit us all. Read the flyer to get specific descriptions for each topic. You must pre-register and pre-pay to be included. Because our instructor is coming from Kansas City, we must have a count by Monday the 17th. This will allow her time to make enough packets for each attendee.
To register just go to sbtsdc.missouristate.edu and click on register on line. There are 6 classes for Shell Knob- choose the ones you will attend and complete the process. There is no special code to use this time, simply select chamber member for the correct price.
Call me if you have any problems or questions. Twila, at the Chamber Office
