Over 20 Years of Tradition

In January 2001, the Mobridge Tourism Committee hosted the first-ever Mobridge Ice Fishing Tournament. With a budget of $800, the committee was committed to making the event a success. In the beginning, the tournament had a cap of 50 individuals and the grand prize was a Mr. Heater. The following year the tournament doubled in size and grew to 50 two-person teams competing for the grand prize of an ice auger. From there the tournament continued to grow every year as the committee allowed more teams to participate.

Now, more than 20 years later the tournament has grown to be the largest Ice Fishing Tournament in South Dakota at 525 teams of two anglers who compete for more than $225,000 in cash and prizes. The Annual Mobridge Ice Fishing Tournament attracts fishermen from all over South Dakota and the entire Midwest each and every year!

How to Fish in the Tournament

To reward the teams of anglers who have fished with us from the beginning the committee allows these teams a guaranteed spot in the tournament. Guaranteed team registration opens every year in mid-July and ends in early August.

There are a handful of opportunities to gain a guaranteed spot each year. Firstly, three guaranteed spots are drawn each year for the anglers who participate in our summer fishing tournament the Annual Denny Palmer Memorial Walleye Classic. Additionally, three guaranteed spots are auctioned off on eBay each year. EBay auctioned teams open in late September. Lastly, we do an annual raffle for a guaranteed spot each year. Tickets for this raffle open in early October and cost $20 per entry, and the team is drawn in December. 

Lottery Drawing

Once guaranteed team registration closes in August all remaining team spots are drawn. The spots drawn are non-guaranteed and allow entry into that year's tournament only.
