2024 PAYBACK UPDATE: IMPORTANT CHANGE

Our focus at NCL is always on catering to our fishermen, and we share the same passion for the sport of competitive crappie fishing as you do. As you know, we have guaranteed payouts of 10k for DIV 1 and 20k for OPEN DIV. However, after speaking to our anglers, we understand that the economy has been tough for many of you, and it’s harder for some of you to travel and enjoy your favorite sport as much as you have in the past. As a result, our numbers are down a little from the projections we had last year, making it harder for us to guarantee paybacks.

In order to keep bringing you great tournaments, we have decided to restructure our payouts. From now on, paybacks will be changed to 100% PLUS.

🔴 NCL will pay back 100% at each event.
🔴 NCL will contribute $25.00 to the big fish prize for each boat/team in Division I.
🔴 NCL will contribute $50.00 to the big fish prize for each boat/team in Open Division.
