One daily $100 prize and one weekly $500 prize will be given for the biggest fish of each species: Bass, Crappie, Catfish, and Striper. At the end of the tournament, the overall big fish of each species will win $5,000. If the big fish (daily, weekly, overall) has more than one winner the prize money will be divided evenly. The 4 Grand Prize winners will receive $5,000 - but they are all potentially subject to a polygraph test.
