Think you know where you can catch a weighty stringer of three bass on Caney Lake? This Thursday evening, May 14th, you and a partner get a chance to show your confidence by entering in the “3 Bass Blast” Team Fishing Tournament sponsored by Hook’s Marina.
The tournament is open to everyone and will take place from the hours of 6:30 – 9:00 PM. All contestants will launch from Hook’s Marina. Contestants 16 years or younger must be accompanied by a parent or guardian with written permission. You can weigh-in your stringer at any time but you must have your catch on the weight keepers tables by no later than 9:45 PM. A fish must be alive to be counted and all fish will immediately be released back into the lake after being weighed.
Entry fee is $30.00 per boat with an 80% payout to the winner. You can also enter the “Big Bass” competition for $10.00 which has a 100% payback. If you are fortunate to catch a “tag fish” you will be awarded $10.00. There will also be a drawing for a free fishing rod held at the final weight-in time.
Additional rules are that no contestant is allowed to fish on the lake the day of the tourney and all fish weighed must be at least 12 inches long. No contestant can leave a boat to obtain a fish and you must fish with a rod and reel using artificial lures. Also there is also no trolling allowed.
No alcoholic consumption is permitted prior to weigh-in and all contestants are responsible for understanding and abiding by local, state and federal laws. For any questions please contact Tournament Director Benson Bagwell at 318-249-2347.
