Indy League Fishing LLC was formed in 2015 by Bob Speers and Mike Schwomeyer to host the highest quality and exciting Major League Fishing format tournaments in the Midwest for amateur or Pro Anglers. We started in Indiana and now we are hosting MLF Format Tournaments in the Midwest, including: Indiana, Ohio, Illinois, Michigan and now Kentucky in 2019. Our goal and mission is to maintain the format as close as possible to the Major League Fishing format and rules. Check ILF by the numbers for information about our growth, payouts and held records.
A unique benefit to the ILF / MLF Style format is the care given to the fish. There are ILF / MLF rules with enforced penalties for improper fish care. For example, the fish are released in the same area they are caught, no fish goes in the livewell and there are no culling devices use. The fish must be released below the gunwale of the boat rather than tossed back in the water and fish cannot touch the Anglers body or anything in the boat including the floor of the boat.
Just want to thank Bob and Mike and say what a great job they do running Indy League Fishing. These guys put on a great event and have every detail covered. This format truly is the most exciting format I have ever experienced in fishing.
Our 2019 season now offers Angers several types of events in which to experience the Major League Fishing Style format.
