Yes they are pulling the lake again and as of 10:15AM on this fine Tuesday morning is has crossed the 826.22 MSL level and headed down quickly. It looks like Wednesday and Wednesday night we could see another 1 1/2" or more of rain again. With that forecast I feel confident that we can go back to Gatewood this coming Sunday with no real fear of ramp issues. The long range forecast for Sunday looks pretty decent with a high of 49 degrees, partly cloudy and low wind (keep your fingers crossed!!). It's definitely winter time, but the fish are still cooperating remarkably well for a lot of people. I would expect the same thing going into this event, so come on out and join us!
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
