The Western PA Hardwater Tournament Series will return to Erie, PA for a two-day ice fishing tournament February 16-17, 2019! In its third season, the WPA Hardwater Tournament Series has expanded to two new areas. The series provides the region's only competitive ice fishing events for both amateur and professional anglers. Both days, anglers will launch from locations on Presque Isle State Park. 

Day 1 (February 16) will be held on Misery Bay. Official launch will be at the main access on the east side of Misery Bay. 
Day 2 (February 17) will be held on Marina Bay, with the tournament launching from the West Pier Boat Ramp. 

The tournament winner will be determined based on the combined weight of the two days of competition. Cost is $80 (for two days). Gates to Presque Isle State Park open at 5 a.m.

Registration forms will be provided at each event. Online registration is not available.
