    That sounds like a great time Russ, I hope to be able to make it down for that one. How are the river conditions doing down that way?

    I'm off and planning on attending the Cabelas New Madrid Event. Russ is correct, the entire town shows up for this event. Its Crazyyyyyyy. They have a fish fry the night before. Its a great time. I hope the River stays its course. Alot of water coming that way over the course of the remainder of this week. Hope to see you all soon down there.

    Guys, if theres one tournament you need to make this year, its this one. Some of the things planned are a skeet shoot, archery shoot, kids fishing derby, bbq, car and bike show, and a big fish fry on friday night to start it all off. Like's been said already, the whole town comes out and its a ton of fun, definetely something good to bring the whole family to see.

    I won't be fishing the tournament due to "budgeting issues":embarassed:, but I'm taking my little boy to the levee on saturday to watch the weigh-in. Hope to see a lot of you there. If anybody needs directions, has trouble finding lodging, or has any other issues, feel free to pm me and I'll do what I can to help you. I know a lot of people locally and in surrounding towns who are more than willing to work with those fishing in the tournament.

    Good Luck.
