    Thanks Paul, I am looking forward to the event and promoting catfishing here in Georgia. I am getting some decent response from this site and from flyers that have been posted. Should be a good event and a learning experience for me

    One of my last tournaments (Bass) I fished was on Uchee Creek. We lost a couple Soldiers that day. It was two Rangers and the owner of Ranger Joe's Barber Shop.

    Two boats at excessive speed colliding. Happened on River Bend.


    Thats when I was sporting my 40 HP Bass Tracker! :smile2:

    I can see that happening. Those bass boats are crazy and the best fishing hole for that stretch is in the chokepoint between the sand bars. I cuss those bass boats everytime I fish that spot!

    Its getting closer to the tournament! I know that water is going to be nice and warm by then. Hope the catfish don't leave the couple of holes I have found or I will up the creek without a paddle!!:smile2:

    Jared, come on now brother. You going to give me away? I know that you are trying to keep those holes to yourself and all, but you don't have to make me look like the pro!!

    Due to the request of several potential participants there has been a slight rules change to our event.

    Teams can now consist of 3 persons regardless of age. 6 rod limit is still in affect
