Benzie Fishing FrenzyName: Benzie Fishing FrenzyDate: July 26, 2019 - July 28, 2019Website: http://www.frankfort-elberta.comEvent Description:The Benzie Fishing Frenzy Tournament, one of the largest and most popular salmon fishing events on the Tournament Trail is just around the corner. The tournament starts July 26 with the Ladies Classic, then proceeds through the weekend 27 and 28 with the Pro and Amateur Divisions.
This is a new weekend for the Frenzy since inception more than 15 years ago. There are typically high winds in August and several times over the years, the tournament, or a portion of the tournament had to be cancelled. So, we thought we would give a new weekend a try!
Mineral Springs Park, downtown Frankfort - One of the only places in Northern Michigan where you will see potentially over 1,200 salmon and trout being weighed as these competitors try to win the Biggest and Heaviest Fish! Weigh-ins begin just after noon each day under the pavilion.
Sponsors of this event are: Frankfort-Elberta Chamber of Commerce, Make it Benzie, Curtis Insurance Agency, Dinghy's Restaurant & Bar, Graceland Fruit, State Savings Bank, West Shore Bank, MacDonald Marine, Blarney Castle Oil & Propane, Art's Tavern, The Cabbage Shed, Family Fare, BigJon Sports, Dreamweaver & Warrior Lures.
Anyone can register to be part of this tournament - You do not have to be a professional fisherman. It is SUPER fun and you could win thousands of dollars! You will not want to miss all of the excitement!
