Like Stephen said, "Looks like we're fishing again!!" That includes Porko's Midnight Madness tournaments out of Gatewood. Our next event will be on Saturday night, June 13, 2020, 7PM till 2AM. I will be there around 6:30PM (beginning Jun 27, 2020) to start taking entry fees. The tournament will run from 8PM till 3AM. To keep the Rangers happy please respect the social distancing spread and try to keep at least 6' between you and the others for signing in and for the weigh in. I will have some hand sanitizer available for those who feel the need to use it.
The fees are $50 ($10 to Big Bass and $40 to a 1-5 payback, more than 25 entries will pay 6 places no matter what) and an optional $10 Side Pot, heaviest sack wins all.
5 fish limit, 12" minimum, one dead fish allowed, Big Bass must be alive. I will be watching fish mortality this summer, if we start seeing a lot of dead fish we will reduce the limit to 3 fish instead of 5.
No live bait
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. Please remember the launch fee is a Bartow County fee and not a CoE launch fee, there is a booth at the park entrance now with an attendant, you pay for the day or buy an annual pass.
Schedule for this summer is as follows:
Jun 13th and Jun 27th
Jul 11th and Jul 25th
Aug 8th and Aug 22nd
Sep 12th and Sep 24th
Looking forward to seeing you guys!!!!
