We've had 79 teams fish the last three Wed Nighters and have paid out $2765.00!  With an average field of 26 boats we look forward to another solid turnout this week.  Registration and livewell checks will start around 6:00 pm on the City Park beach…just look for the row of bass boats!  

See everyone Wed!

- Each team must register in person at the designated registration area. Cash only, no checks.
- All boats are subject to a livewell check.
- Tournament hours will be 6:30 pm to 10:00 pm.
- Boats will launch simultaneously for tournaments drawing 20 teams or less. For tournaments with over 20 teams, boat numbers will be assigned chronologically at registration and staged flights of five boats will be released 30 seconds apart.
- Boats must be beached at the weigh-in area by the end of the tournament.
- It is the angler’s responsibility to get the official time from the Tournament Director.

TPWD is on the way to Ivie to pick up SAL 498, it was caught today and weighed in at 13.04 lbs.

One more tomorrow and it will set up perfectly for someone to catch #500 at this week's Wed Nighter!

Can you imagine if someone does catch SAL #500 during the tourney?  haha.  That would be a pretty good little pay day for someone!  Of course, the big cash would be from the TPWD but then getting the tournament win would be a sweet bonus.  I think I'm going to have to put the SAL phone number in my cell phone right now.   :cool:

Looks like there will be a bit of a storm passing through during the day on Wednesday, but it should be fairly nice during the tournament.

Sorry to bust your bubble Ander, but #500 is in the tank already. #499 was caught this morning at Falcon and a buddy of mine caught #500 today on Ivie. I'd still be happy with #501 or 502.

Talk about frustrating. I spent entirely way too long on a big bed fish last night. There were beds everywhere though. We only spent about 45 minutes before the tournament looking around and must've seen around 20 fish locked on beds. I apparently need to get out sometime in the next couple of days and hone my bed fishing skills again. It's been a few years since I've been able to do any sight fishing on beds.
