Because Life is Better at the Lake

Outlaw Outdoors Average Joe Tournament


Umphrey Pavilion
Brookeland, Texas

More Info

$160 Entry Fee (includes big bass)
This is a team event but you can fish solo
No membership fee
Trailering is allowed
5 fish limit

This event is not open to everyone. If you have won MORE than $1,500 in 2019, then you CANNOT enter (BassCashBash winnings do not count). This tournament is for the true Average Joe. We pay 1 place for every 3 entries. Every team that gets a check will at least win their entry fees back.

We look forward to the two Average Joe Tournaments we produce every year for the simple fact that it is a whole new group of winners. It's an exciting tournament where you never know who is going to win because the "big dogs" are not allowed to enter!
