The 4th Annual Lake Sharpe / Lake Oahe Bowfishing Tournament was held on Saturday, August 14th beginning at 8:00 PM and ended on Sunday, August 15th at 7:00 AM.
There were 14 teams registered to attend the tournament. Team members came from all over South Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, North Dakota and Nebraska. All 14 competed and all returned safe and sound for weigh in. Weather was less than cooperative as a storm developed and delayed some teams from getting on the water due to lightning in the area. Wind was brisk, but nowhere near what teams endured earlier in the year at the BAA WORLD’S Tournament held in Brookings. A few teams had some mechanical issues that hindered their overall ability to participat with one team having to get off the water early due to mechanical failure, but still did very well considering.
A total of 530 rough fish were taken during the tournament. Here are the results:
