  • a popular weekend ritual performed by devotees of competitive action at local pay-to-fish catch and release ponds; a locally accepted form of gambling

    The ponds are typically stocked commercially with catfish, carp, and/or crappie. Each tournament fisherman pays an entry fee to fish and compete for prizes. Tournaments vary in duration, and may be arranged as eight-hour, overnight, or full weekend contests. The pooled entry fees are awarded to hourly and overall winners of "most fish" and "biggest fish" caught. A $25 entry fee could net a lucky fisherman hundreds of dollars in prizes.
