The Original Redneck Fishin Tournament


Original Redneck Fishin Tournament



Due to flooding the 2019 event has been cancelled.


Since 2005, the small village of Bath, IL has hosted an annual event bringing people from across the country to "fish" and help to eradicate the "flying" asian carp from the Illinois River.


Truly a one of a kind of event, it is one of the only fishing tournaments in the world where a fishing pole is strictly prohibited.
