Catch & Release Fishing Tournament at Bay Flats Lodge

March 21, 2023, marked another Bay Flats Lodge corporate customer Catch & Release fishing tournament, and it was a big success. The Ontivity telecommunications equipment company hosted 40 of their guests for a visit to the lodge for some much needed fun and recreation. 


Part of the festivities included ten 4-man fishing teams competing for bragging rights in their Catch & Release fishing tournament held at the lodge. This tournament serves as yet another step for us down the path toward future environmental and ecological sustainability – another way for us to exhibit our commitment toward conservation.


Bay Flats Lodge was able to facilitate Ontivity’s Catch & Release tournament by utilizing a popular fishing tournament management app known as Fishing Chaos. It’s a fishing app that allows anglers to catch, photograph, and then release their catch, while all the time culling the longest fish (by species) for accumulation of the largest (winning) stringer. It’s a very flexible app that enables tournament directors the ability to structure their tournament formats any way they wish. 

We’ve been so pleased with it that we’ve continued using it for many other large corporate Catch & Release tournaments held here at the lodge. To learn more about our Catch & Release program and Sustainability initiatives visit
