    i am still ironing out some final details on the PAYOUTS, rules and regs. But the date and location is set in concrete. im also workin on the host hotels speacial anglers prices.

    Its all coming together nicely are we are getting lots of support from local and national sponsors. This event promises to be a milestone in catfishing tournament history.


    the folks at Welcome to Clear Creek Harbor - Clear Creek Harborare sparing no expense on the southern hospitality. providing many amenities on location for the anglers and crowd. There is parking for up to 700 vehicles and there are supplying the anglers with shuttles if needed.

    the folks at SYLACAUGA MARINE & ATV SYLACAUGA, AL (866) 354-2628 will have a mechanic on duty for the anglers

    i have personally fished the waters and from what i see, the lake is loaded with big solid flateads and blues. forage base is gizzard shad, threadfin shad, bream, red horse suckers ans a variety of huge shinners. As far as i know skip jack is not available in the Coosa chain of lakes.


    I WILL KEEP EVERYONE UPDATED ON ANY AND ALL NEWS IN FUTURE POST.

    Looks like another Beautiful southern lake!! Google map has it 13 hrs.. and/or 775 miles from my house.... unless I win the lottery between now and June its just gonna be a pipe dream for this ol Boy...
    Sorry Steve
     
  10. I think Im in a point in my life that thinking of tournament fishing needs to become reality!! Anyone who has fished tournaments please IM me. I have tons of questions, but as of now...I plan to be in this one!!
     
  11. I'm assuming that the payouts will go pretty deep too ??? So the poor boys like me in the little humble cattin machines not the big fancy seaarks and such with $10,000 worth of electronics, lol might have a chance to at least win some gas money back ????
     
  12. the whole idea behind this tourny was to create higher payouts for the top finishers, we cant do that if were deviding monies down 20 places. so will not be going to deep in 2012 possibly 10 but no more, still hashin out all the details, its gonna depend on the number of boats entered. if we pull off a successful event in 2012 then we will look at improvements for 2013, the cold hard facts is; everybody cant win money.
    however we will have some kick ass parting gifts provided by top sponsors for everyone that will be distrubuted at the end of day two.
