Michigan Fishing Tournament Information System

Michigan Department of Natural Resources

The Michigan Department of Natural Resources (MDNR) welcomes you to the Fishing Tournament Information System (MFTIS) web site where you can schedule a tournament or view scheduled fishing tournaments for a water body, ramp and date you select. This system is designed to help both tournament organizers and recreational anglers and boaters avoid ramp conflicts. In addition, tournament organizers can electronically report their catch data and help Fisheries Division effectively manage our valuable fisheries resources.

By policy, Fisheries Division will not assist nor become involved in promoting fishing tournaments. However, Fisheries Division recognizes that bass tournament catch and effort data can provide important information about bass populations across the State of Michigan.

Tournament Directors
Access MFTIS

Fisheries Division encourages bass tournament directors to enter their scheduled tournaments into this system as well as voluntarily contribute their tournament catch results to help us manage Michigan’s bass fisheries. The scientific value of tournament catch and effort data will be greater if more tournament directors participate in reporting their bass tournament results. This information will be used by state fisheries biologists, in combination with data from other sources, as a basis for informed fisheries management decisions.

Your group/club results will NOT be shared publicly. Only general statewide results summaries will be reported publicly. For more information about the MFTIS, regulations and additional information, see the MDNR MFTIS Welcome page.
