Each year the organization hosts a tournament trail for the membership. There are two divisions in which the members can choose to fish. A Division is a little more expensive ($40 per tournament) and is generally fished by people who are comfortable at fishing tournaments and have a little more knowledge of the waters. B Division is quite cheap to fish ($20 per tournament) and is generally considered to be a place for learners and people who are not familiar with the waters to fish against other people who are competing at the same level.

If you wish to try and qualify for the National Semi Final Division 15 tournament through the tournament trail, you need to fill out the "NSF Trail Qualifier" Application and attach the $75.00 fee. The deadline for this application is before you fish your first 2018 trail event.
