Putting together a Manchac tournament out of the North pass public launch on Saturday, March 21! The hours will be safelight to weigh-in at 3:00. This is a team tournament, although you may fish alone. Payout and entry fee will be on a per boat basis, not individual. You can have no more than 2 people in a boat. We are keeping it cheap at just $25 (cash only) per boat (includes big bass) and everything is 100% paid back. We will be paying out the top 3 places and big bass. only your best 5 bass will count towards your tournament weight with a 12 inch minimum on bass to be weighed in. Dead fish will not be weighed in. (if the gills are even barely moving the fish will be considered alive). The payout will be 1st- 40%, 2nd- 25%, 3rd- 15%, and big bass- 20%. Note: *We will round the percentages to numbers that will work with the money we have, so don't expect exact change. The percentages are just a guide* If anyone has any questions just let me know!

Looks like the weather is calling for 90% chance of rain with maybe a t-storm or 2. I will keep an eye on it throughout the rest of the week. If I cancel the tourney i'll post it here sometime Friday. So please check back here sometime Friday afternoon to make sure it's still on. If it looks like it'll just be rain showers all day (with little chance of lightning) then we'll go.

We had 14 boats come out on Saturday to fish out of North Pass in Manchac. The weather stayed good all the way through weigh in, and no one ended up getting wet. We paid out top 3 places and big bass. Topping the leaderboard in 1st place was Darren Welch / Ryan Soto with 9 lbs - 5 oz anchored by a 4 lb - 9.8 oz lunker. Coming in 2nd was Paul Paille with 7 lbs - 5.4 oz. And rounding out the top 3 was Chris Galloway with 6 lbs - 14.6 oz. The team of Lewis Laurent & Fuzzy Kemp had the big bass of the tournament with a 5 lb - 8 oz beast. Others who weighed fish are:

Drake Sullivan/Ray Clemens w/ 5 lbs - 6.8 oz
Landon Schexnayder/Brent Harrel w/ 4 lbs-10.8oz
Brent Mcmillan/Jason Mcmillan w/ 4 lbs - 3.4 oz

I'm going to try to do about 4 per year. (spring, summer, fall, winter). So I plan on doing another one sometime in late spring / early summer.
