This year we are celebrating our 30th Bass Fishing Tournament for the Physically Challenged. This was the first tournament of its kind in the country. It has been held at Caddo Lake, the only natural lake in Texas, and will continue to be there. Caddo has a magic about it: swamps, cypress trees with Spanish moss, herons, eqrets, osbrey, alligators.... It is a one day tournament on May 9 but you must attend the captains meeting on Friday night starting at 5pm. There is also an All Species Tournament on May 9. For more information, contact Shorty at 972-524-4231.
Maybe you or someone you know would like to get involved with us - we welcome members, volunteers, sponsors and donors.
