About Us

Our history

Tournafin.com was launched in January 2020. With over 15 years providing cutting edge software solutions for fishing tournaments across the globe, Tournafin is the fishing event management service you can trust!

Traditionally, fishing tournaments require a lot of work! Countless hours go into sourcing sponsorship, selling tickets, registering participants, and preparing the venue - all before fishing begins! When waves of successful anglers flood in, certifying entries, tabulating results, and updating leaderboards can become a daunting routine. Let Tournafin do the work, so you don't have to!

Our mission

Tournafin's mission is to be the premier event management service trusted by fishing tournaments around the world. No event is too big and none too small! Tournafin takes pride in being able to make events run more efficiently by automatically calculating results, updating leaderboards, and keeping participants informed of where they rank among their fellow competitors. Furthermore, Tournafin values the relationships that we have with our customers! We strive to provide an unparalleled, highly customizable event service paired with exceptional customer support.

Powering the world's largest fishing events.

Our philosophy on fishing events

Tournafin believes that fishing events need to understand and recognize the impacts on local fish stocks and the environment before event planning begins. If Tournafin believes that an event is targeting fragile or at-risk stocks or does not have the appropriate permit or permission from the governing bodies, we will refuse to offer our tournament services.

Tournafin values conservation initiatives to maintain balance in ecoystsems and sustain fish stocks. Our service is designed to accommodate both catch & keep events and events that practice catch & release.

We've also found that over 90% of the events we host give proceeds back to charity and over 75% of those events give back to a charity or initiative that helps local fish populations. While fishing tournaments often increase fishing pressure over a short time period, the benefits of raising funds for a conservation effort such as fish hatcheries, habitat restoration, and scientific analysis typically far outweigh the former.

Fishing tournaments are also a great way to introduce children to fishing and connect with other like-minded anglers. They also help support local economies. Businesses such as tackle shops, hotels, fuel stations and restaurants often receive a nice boost in revenue during a fishing event.

Finally, fishing should be fun! What better way to have fun than to share a day on the water with close family and friends, waiting for that next big bite and a chance to win a big prize!

Running an event just became easy.

"Thanks again guys! We had another great derby and are very happy with the service. The participants love to keep track of the live results and I love the easy compilation of results at the end."

Technology to get excited about!

"The future has arrived! Everything from weighing fish to placing them on the fish-board worked to perfection! Anglers who had their picture taken with their catch thought it was great. I think every event should use this!"
