HAWG FIGHT - sinitiere

Another great turnout at yesterday evening’s Hawg Fight!   Thirty, that’s right, thirty boats participated in the tournament which resulted in a total purse of $1,800.   With the days getting longer, we were able to move the weigh in back to 8:15 and that allowed boats to run a little further in search of the green monsters.  Fishing was tough but, as always, someone tends to find a decent bag.  First Place was won by Bucky Crowson and Billy Billeaud with 3 fish for 7.27 pounds and they collected $600 for under three hours fishing.   Second Place went to Andre Cazelot and Neil Robin with 3 fish for 7.17 pounds and it paid $360.  Third place went to Don and Jacob Shoopman with 3 fish for 6.97 pounds and they won $240.   The Big Bass was a 5.34 pound monster and it was captured by Drew Rivet and that fish was worth $300.   $300 was taken out of the pot and retained for the classic tournament bringing that total after 5 tournaments to $1,350 so we are expecting the classic to have a considerable payout.  Remember, you must fish five tournaments to qualify to fish the classic.  The next Hawg Fight tournament will be on June 6th at Bayou Benoit landing.  The basin is coming down and we think everyone is ready to test their skills in that unique water body.  Hope to see everyone there!

The young guns ruled by swamping the field at the Louisiana Bass Cats tournament held Sunday, May 21st out of Franklin. The team of Zach Suit and TJ Norris brought in a massive stringer of 16 pounds 11 ounces, including the tournament big bass of 4 pounds 4 ounces. Their efforts resulted in winning $220 for first place plus $110 for Big Bass. Just shy of 17 pounds at this time of the year in south Louisiana is a very impressive bag. Zach has been on fish as evidenced by his being on the winning team in the last two Wednesday evening Hawg Fight Tournaments and his co-lead in that tournament series. While Zach and TJ were hammering them, most of the rest of the field were being eaten alive by biting gnats. While catching that quality of fish, Zach and TJ probably didn’t even feel the gnats that left many of us with red bumps and swollen on all areas of exposed skin.

In second place was father and son team of Phil and Derick Ransonet with 11 pounds 10 ounces winning $132 and third place was Randal Savoy and Bucky Crowson with 10 pounds 12 ounces winning $88. The club standings will be posted as soon as Mr. Lynn compiles everything.

We have a lot of new members in the club this year so I have attached a copy of the club rules.  I encourage everyone, including our older members, to read them in order to avoid any unintentional rule violations which could result in a DQ.

The Louisiana Bass Cats do not have a tournament in June so our next meeting will be July 9th and the next tournament will be July 22nd. We hope everyone enjoys the start of summer and remember to stay safe and apply sun screen every time you go in the sun.
