The Michigan Fishing Tournament Information System is where you can schedule a tournament or view scheduled fishing tournaments for a particular waterbody, ramp and date.
- Helps both tournament organizers and recreational anglers and boaters avoid ramp conflicts
- Allows tournament organizers to report their catch data
Most fishing tournaments and other competitive events are private club events that require preregistration and are not open to the general public. Please do not show up at a registered tournament or event and expect to enter. If a registered tournament/event has contact information, contact them about membership or registration prior to the date of the tournament.
On January 1, 2019, by law, all bass and walleye fishing tournaments and competitive fishing events targeting muskellunge are required to be registered in the Michigan Fishing Tournament Information System (FTIS). Any suspicion of an unregistered bass, walleye or muskellunge event being held in Michigan should be promptly reported to the Report All Poaching Hotline: 1-800-292-7800.

In addition to registering a tournament on the Michigan Fishing Tournament Information System, some tournaments may also require an event use permit. Please contact the facility where the event will occur for questions about whether or not a permit is needed.
