We'll back home at Gatewood this weekend and the weather looks like it's going to be overcast and warm. They are still pulling the lake hard. It's Wednesday morning as I write this and the MSL is 846 1/2' and dropping about a foot a day! So we will probably be almost down to 841' MSL by Sunday afternoon and that is still over summer pool! These poor fish won't know what's going on as the water warms and they should be positioning for the spawn (normally the lake rising slowly this time of year), but they are being pulled away from the shallow water. Come on out anyway, you might just be the one who can figure it out! I can assure you that you will be surrounded by folks trying to do just that! Looking forward to seeing all of you!
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
