Here it is Wednesday morning already. The lake was coming up a little at a time, until yesterday after 2 (+)" of rain. Now it's rising really well, up to 829.33 from 827.73 this time yesterday. Maybe the park manager will have both ramps open this weekend! (I will call and ask). The weather is going to be warmer with a high around 64, but it's looking like we might have rain, that could change by the time Sunday gets here. No matter, we'll be there anyway 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

Yes it rained on us and it never got out of the 40s (I'm pretty sure!), and yes the wind blew (a lot at times!! This falls into the "I'm glad it's over " category!.
We had ten paid entries today and paid two places and big bass, and the side pot. There were 16 anglers weighing 13 fish for 21.74lbs. Big Bass was a 3.51lb spotted bass.
Ken and I edged Rick and Danny, we had 5.06 and they had 5.01. HK and Matt had Big Bass with a 3.51LB spot for $50. Ken and I won $90 for first and $100 on the side pot. Rick and Danny got $60 for second place
We'll be back out there next weekend and pray that we get a weather break!!
Have a safe week!!
