    I wanted to invite all you guys that are coming down for the tournament to the annual Lone Oak FFA fish fry and auction. The food is donation only, you could put a dollar in the bucket, or whatever you want, some people don't put anything in. We start the feeding at 6pm but will be there feeding til around 10:30. There will be an auction going on also, but you are not obligated to that at all. It is only about 6 miles or so from the tournament headquarters at the Lone Oak High cafeteria. Just thought you would like a good catfish dinner after a long day of fishing. There will be catfish, chicken, hushpuppies, beans, slaw, and desserts. Plus all the tea you want to drink. Hope to see some of yall there.

    I'm thinking about driving up from houston to check out this tournament. I've never been to one before, is there anything to do while you wait for the fish to come in? Is there going to be vendors or sponsors selling stuff? Just wondering thanks for any help.

    Last year they had a slide for kids,a pet show,and they were serving all you can eat fish for like 6 bucks .I went last year and watched the weigh in and it is a great way to see big fish and meet some of the fisherman and pick up tips.I plan to be their this year as well.Their will be some BIG stringers in this one....I think it will take 220 lbs to win this year.

    the festival will not be going on this year- we moved the event to february to increase the weigh in weights- we hope to be bidding on the national championship in the next few years it is a canton weekend (35 minutes away) but there will be little to do at the park
