I am posting the advertisement for the tournament. I am just doing it as a favor and to get the word out there. It is the first time that i know of that there is a tournament of this type for the time of year. The fishing gets really good in the late summer and fall in the area and should make for a great catch. Looking forward to it! Hope to see many of you there. If this is a success than i know they want to do it every year.
