The Jim Hall May Trout Classic
 The Jim Hall Memorial May Trout Classic is an annual two-day big trout tournament. Entries are limited to the first 500 applicants.

Each day of the event, anglers weigh and record their largest fish in order to verify if their catch made the “leader” board.

Based on 500 entrants, the largest fish weighed for the weekend will indulge its angler to a whopping $2,500 cash prize. There is more than one winner at this all inspiring event as there are a total of $8,000 in cash prizes to be distributed among the first through ninth places.

The sponsors of this event, Pautzke, Big Bear Marina, Holloway’s Marina and Big Bear Sporting Goods have teamed up to sponsor a tagged fish worth $10,000.

Wow, this cash prize is for “reel” (pun intended) and will go to the lucky angler if it the fish is caught using Pautzke bait. If the tagged fish is caught using any other bait, the prize is $5,000.

The entry fee goes to prizes and a fish plant for the tournament. Children under the age of 16 can fish free as long as they are fishing with a paid entrant related to them. For the wee anglers (under 16) prizes include trophies, rods, and reels.

The last weigh-in is at 6 p.m. Saturday. The final awards ceremony is at the Big Bear Lake Convention Center May 20. Make sure you are on time as all winners must be present at the time of the ceremony otherwise the winnings will be forfeited to the fish plant.
