They opened the dam back up and it would appear that they will go hard until the next torrential rain!! Yup,since yesterday morning they have dropped the lake a foot. Let's hope they leave enough water to launch boats this weekend because that would be about the only thing to keep us from having a tournament on Sunday. Keep track of this thread and we'll monitor it closely right up until the last minute. Just trust me when I tell you it takes a phenomenal event for me to cancel a tournament!
I put out a donation tub Sunday afternoon and it worked really well. So my plan is to leave it out for a month or so and we'll see how well it works? If it goes well we'll have some new scales early in 2019! Don't feel like you have to chip in, but it does help. Right now I am looking at a set that weighs up to 60 pounds with weight lock feature for about $549 to $600. Any help is always appreciated.
The tournament runs from 1PM till 5PM. I will be there around noon to start collecting entry fees. You can usually find me down in the handicap area by the ramp
$20 entry fee ($15 to a 1-5 payback,and $5 to Big Bass), and $10 optional side pot - Winner take all (total weight).
3 fish limit, one dead fish allowed. Big Bass must be alive to count. Team (no number restriction) or individual, you decide what works best for your boat. No live bait. Good sportsmanship and no alcohol during tournament. Pretty simple rules, huh?
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
