The water is slow to cool down this year and it is finally start to drop (draw down) noticeably. The fish are transitioning as well, a few are still up shallow, but more of them are moving out with the drawdown. That's my guess anyway! We are having the third event of the season this coming Sunday and we would love to see you out there with us!! I get there around noon and collect entry fees up at the top of the hill near the restrooms. Entry fee has not changed, still $20 for the tournament ($15 to the creel and $5 to Big Bass) and an optional side pot of $10 (winner take all, based on heaviest total). Three fish limit, 12" min, 1 dead fish allowed, no live bait allowed.
All tournaments are held out of Bartow County Gatewood Park: Exit GA-20 exit on I-75 and turn east, Turn south at the light (right from I-75, left from Canton) next to Wendy's onto Spur 20. Go about 2 miles and turn left on Jim Knight Rd., Turn left when it dead ends at the Bartow Beach Rd. (right in front of the COE maintenance yard). Stay on the Beach road and stay to the left past the park Manager's house and follow the signs to the left to the boat ramp
If the lot is full or the pay-box has no envelopes, just let me know and I will give you directions
