2019 NYS Winter Classic Fishing Tournament

The 2019 NYS Classic Fishing Tournament is once again poised to be a
monumental event across the state of NY this winter. This statewide
fishing event allows anglers of all skill levels to compete over a
two-month long period during January and February anywhere in NY State
on the ice or open water for a multitude of species. This will be the
5th year for the event and it is expected to draw over 1,000 anglers
into the competition. The sponsor backing remains strong including the
following companies: Batavia Downs Casino, Frabill, Plano, Clam
Outdoors, HT Enterprises, Aqua-Vu, Fillet Away Fish Mats, Ice Well Live
Well, Koyote Ugly Spoons, Soco Baits, Makiplastic, Ice Strong, FishUSA,
Sullivan Tip Downs, Hirsch Taxidermy, Deep Freeze, Nautic Start, Rose
Creek Anglers, Green Mt. Sporting Supplies, BHammer Tackle, Field &
Stream, Bass Pro Shops, Celox, Vital Signs and more! In all, over
$20,000 in merchandise will be given away to a multitude of
participants. The event will conclude with a sportsman show at Batavia
Downs followed by a banquet and formal awards ceremony where all Top-3
placing anglers will be housed overnight as part of their awards prize

Last year some very impressive catches were weighed in, including the
15.90 lb walleye caught by Josh Allein from Redwood, NY while fishing on
Chaumont Bay January 24th. Josh also took home the $1,000 Grand Prize
Cash Award when his name was drawn from all the 1st place anglers at the
awards ceremony that was held at the Bonnie Castle Resort in Alexandria
Bay, NY in March. In total, Josh walked away with over $1,800 in cash
and prizes.

The event not only features the main prize structure (cash payout for up
to 25 places per category based on angler participation), but anglers
can also go after Weekly Prize Packages (largest fish weighed in for
every fish category every week), overall prizes (largest overall fish
for a particular species), and door prizes that include underwater
cameras, fishing kits, shanties, augers, and much more! Registration is
only $25/angler (with the option to enter the Lunker Pool for $10
additional) and can be completed online or at most weigh-in locations.
Those who enter before December 1st will be entered into an early bird
drawing for a Frabill shanty. Weigh-ins are located all over the state,
65 in total, with additional sites added each year (full map located on
the tournament website). From now through the month of December any
angler who spots the tournament trailer as it tours the state, takes a
picture and posts it to the tournament Facebook page with the hashtag
#2019WinterClassic, will be entered into a drawing for the choice
between a shanty, auger, underwater camera, and/or other equivalent
prizes TBD at the time of the drawing once all prizes have been secured.
