Our next event is schedule for Black Bayou Hosston, on Feb. 1st. Registration is from 5:45am - 6:30am, with take-off scheduled for 6:45am. Currently the ramp/dock area is choked up with Giant Salvinia, mainly from the westerly winds, but boats have been launching there. Benton Bass Club is supposed to have a tourney out there next weekend, so hopefully their traffic will clear some of it out of the way. If the ramp is unusable on our tournament morning, we will use our alternate lake selection and all drive to Caddo and launch together at Shady Acres ramp.
Black Bayou Hosston is officially OFF-LIMITS for those fishing our event on Saturday, Feb. 1st.
Thanks for all the input on the Hosston ramp conditions, I plan on going down to BBH on Thursday and cleaning off the ramp. We'll be doing a take-off similar to what we did on Cross, so get there early. Registration will be from 5:00am - 6:00am, with a first cast at 6:45am. With the dock situation the way it is, we may need some guys to shuttle the previously launched tow vehicle driver's out to their partner's boats...to prevent congestion. We should be able to work out the logistics that morning, everyone's good about helping each other out.

Our next event will be on Grand Bayou, Coushatta on Feb. 15th. The 7 Pound Pot rolls over to GB at $240 and the Total Weight Pot is at $180. Please take the time to try and get the Giant Salvinia off your boat trailers prior to launching at Grand Bayou, the public ramps on the river are a great place to do it...call me if you need help and I will help you.
