Calcasieu Lake (Big Lake)

All proceeds will be donated to Big Brothers Big Sisters of SWLA.

There are 3 seperate divisions & each division has 2 brackets.

The brackets are a 3 fish stringer for both speckled trout & redfish. There is also a Big Speck Jackpot for the largest speckled trout caught overall.

In addition to cash money, 1st place winners in the ladies only trout, Good Ole Boys trout & overall biggest trout divisions will win a custom built fishing rod donated by BillyStix Custom Rods.

We will be giving out door prizes donated by our sponsors as well. We are working to get fliers printed as soon as possible.

If anyone is interested in becoming a sponsor, donate door prizes, offer special services, sell raffle tickets & tournament registrations, ect. please don't hesitate to contact us.

I am very pleased to announce that we have secured Weigh-In services from the Coastal Bend Weigh Team out of Galveston Texas. We want to make this tournament run as smooth as possible & we also want it to be fair for everyone involved. I felt like hiring a 3rd party weigh master with over 10 years of experience running weigh stations was the best way to take all the guess work out of the weigh-in.
