2017 Scotty® King of Kings Tournaments
Welcome to the official site of the King of Kings! We are pleased to announce the dates for the 2016 Scotty King of Kings Tournament Series - mark your calenders!! The 2016 Spring Tournament will be held on Saturday June 17, 2017 at Bluffer's Park Marina in Toronto, Ontario, and the original Summer Tournament will be held on Saturday August 5, 2017 at Bluffer's Park Marina as well. We appreciate the continued support we have received from our sponsors and tournament anglers in the past and are confident the 2017 tournaments will once again be a great success and even more exciting.
The 2017 Scotty King of Kings Tournaments will again be operated as Invitiational Tournaments, and we are now accepting registrations/payments for the 2017 Tournaments. Those teams that fished the 2016 Tournament Series will be given the first opportunity to register and hold their spot in the 2017 Tournaments, and in order to do so entry fees must be by received no later than April 1, 2017 for the Spring 2017 Tournament, and by June 1, 2017 for the Summer Tournament. Registration forms (available under the Tournament Info Page) must be completed in full, with cheques payable to The King of Kings Tournament and mailed/dropped off to Scotty King of Kings Tournament, 4-1550 Kingston Road, Suite 1071, Pickering, Ontario, Canada, L1V 6W9. After the above dates, there will be no reserved spots for returning teams, and any spots will be open to other tournament teams registered on the waiting list. We are continuing to welcome registrations accompanied by a $200 deposits for any new teams looking to fish the tournament, and such teams will be placed on waiting list based on the date the application is received. Spots will be available to teams on the waiting list begining April 2, 2017 for the Spring Tournament and on June 2, 2017 for the Summer Tournament.
Many of the top salmon sport-fishing teams from all over the great lakes will assemble for the one day shoot-out format and compete for over $60,000 in Cash and Prizes! In addition to the many sponsors that have supported the tournament over the years, we are very pleased to have Scotty Outdoor Products as the Title Sponsor for the event.
The Scotty King of Kings is a limited field, observer mandatory, one day tournament that is by invitation only. This unique tournament format welcomes teams from around the great lakes and provides for a very competitive and exiting one-day fishing tournament on Lake Ontario with the winner being crowned as the "King of Kings" and rewarded with a huge cash payout! In addition, to a great day of fishing and the opportunity to fish for the large cash prize, the tournament is also recognized for donating money, on behalf of tournament participants, to enhancing the Lake Ontario Sportfishery and supporting local charities including the Canadian Cancer Society. Its no wonder the tournament has been sold out over for the past six years with a waiting list of teams to get in!!
With 2017 marking the 14th year anniversary of the King of Kings Tournament, we continued to operate the Spring Tournament as a $1,000 entry/team, and offering the Summer Tournament as a $2,000 entry/team with a $40,000 1st Place Payout!!! And we continue to pay down to 10th Place. Based on feedback from tournament anglers, we are pleased to announce that the 2017 Tournaments will operate under the same format and registration fees. Therefore, the team registrations for the Scotty 2017 Spring Tournament will be $1,000, and the Scotty 2017 Summer Tournament will be $2,000. Payouts will continue to be for the top 10 teams. We also can’t forget about the Ross Patrick Memorial Big Fish Award which is worth $1,000, or the exciting 3 fish Calcutta that is organized each year - which in previous years has added over $5,000 is cash to the prize pool! Assuming a full field (again), at a minimum payouts will be to the top 10 teams, including a 1st place payout of $25,000 cash for the Spring Tournament and $40,000 for the Summer Tournament - not bad for one days fishing!
For the past fourteen (14) years the event has been a huge success and is talked about as the “Premier Great Lakes one-day Salmon Fishing Tournament. Our wait list is a testament to this statement. We would like to thank all of the tournament participants and the many sponsors who have supported the tournament over the years. We encourage you to put our sponsors products to the "test", and where possible support them in your upcoming purchases as without them we would not have a tournament. We are always looking to add key sponsors and if you would like to participate please let us know.
As always we welcome your questions and comments, and please do not hesitate to contact us.
Have a great fishing season and tight lines to everyone!

A Special Thanks to Our Sponsors!
