This Saturday, June 18, all eyes, or rods as it were, will head to this 2,500 acre, lunker factory of a lake, to possibly catch the fish of a lifetime and be able to cash in on it!  And that big fish is a definite possibility as Bassmaster Magazine declared Grand Bayou to be the 24th Best Bass Lake in the entire Central zone of the United States.

This will be a "one fish" or "Big Bass" style tournament as opposed to a "stringer" tournament and one hook set could net that angler a grand total of $850.

They'll have a total of seven hourly weigh in's:

  • 6:00 am to 8:00 am
  • 8:01 am to 9:00 am
  • 9:01 am to 10:00 am
  • 10:01 am to 11:00 am
  • 11:01 am to 12:00 pm
  • 12:01 pm to 1:00 pm
  • 1:01 pm to 2:00 pm.

First place finishers with the biggest bass of each hour will receive $350. 2nd will get $250. 3rd will get $150 and 4th place each hour will get $75.

Plus, the biggest bass overall in the tournament will receive another $500.

All the prize money is guaranteed regardless of the number of anglers competing.

Entry fee is only $60 per contestant.

Below is the official set of rules and a copy of the official entry form.
