The first July 2020 event is in sight now. We'll see you guys Saturday Night!
The tournament from 8 PM (instead of 7 PM) till 3 AM (instead of 2 AM). I will be there around 6:30 PM, it is our hope that you will arrive 6:30 or later to allow the parking lot to clear out a little bit and not add to the chaos that was there already!
Please monitor us here and on the Facebook page for Allatoona Tournament group.

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.

Well, we've moved the hours to 8-3 and the parking lot was still crowded! I guess the sun worshipers just wanted to make yesterday last as long as they could. I know there were a bunch of boats, yachts, jet skies going all over the place at tournament start!! The weather was actually really nice last night and the water temps are finally in the mid 80s (summer is here!)
We had 47 paid entries last night, 2 entries shy of our cut-off. 28 entries did not weigh fish (I suspect that they caught some fish and just decided not to weigh them). Regardless, there were some good fish brought to the scales by those who did stick it out. There were 98 fish weighed for 166.5 lbs (average 1.70 lb per fish). While we had some nice large-mouth bass weighed, Big Bass honors was given to a spotted bass. Here are the money spots:
6th place went to Nick Tunney, fishing by himself. Nick had 5 fish for 8.48 lbs and $94
5th place was Chris and Jeff S. with 5 fish for 8.67 lbs and $188
4th place went to Gray F. and mark M with 5 fish for 12.25 lbs and $320
3rd place was Chris and Jamey with 5 fish for 12.74 lbs and $376
2nd place was Brian B. and Greg with 5 fish for 12.79 lbs and $432
1st place was Bill P. Carson and Josh with 5 fish for 13.12 lbs and Big Bass with a spot that weighed 4.61 lbs (they also had a nice LMB almost as big as the spot!). Bill introduced this young couple to tournament fishing tonight and the tasted victory! How much did they win? $470 for first, $470 for Big Bass and $470 for the side pot, $1410! I believe that they are going to like tournament fishing, don't you? Congrats to Team CCW and Bill Payne!!!
Our next event will be on July 25, 2020, same place same time! Come on out!!
