Last week some TOADS were weighed in as well as some solid sacks.  With the recent stretch of warm weather, the bed fishing bonanza should continue. We had 29 the last 2 weeks let see if we can bust the 30 boat mark. 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!
