Goat rock tournament results

Thread starter #1

On Saturday the Chattahoochee Hilljacks tackled Goat Rock Lake for our second Catfishing Tournament of the season. What a day it would turn out to be! We started the day with cool temperatures and a refreshing rain shower which quickly turned into blistering heat and then right back to severe Thunderstorms back to blistering heat! Outside temperatures would range from 75-85 (or higher) while the water temp ranged from 73-76 degrees.

We nearly doubled the size of our fishing tournament with 11 teams showing up to compete! A great group of catfisher men/women for this event! I had a great time talking with everyone. Word seems to be getting out about our events and I believe it will continue to grow at a rapid pace.

Special Thanks go out to the Magic Bait Company and to Leonard Worthy Jr for sponsoring the event!

Finishing in 1st Place was Team Flannel Blue (Eddie Frith/Joe Fields). They would weigh in with an impressive 16.65 pounds of fish. Joe would be the youngest catfisherman fishing today. Congrats to Team Flannel Blue for your victory. Unfortunately we did not get a photo of the winning fish! 1st place would pay $165.00

2nd Place would go to Team Big Cat (Ken Lewis/Billy Dale) with 14.55 pounds of catfish. Congrats to Team Big Cat for a great finish! 2nd place paid $99.00

3rd Place would go to Team Bait Fish (Kenneth and Dustin Blalock) with 14.00 pounds of catfish. Congrats to Team Bait Fish for their great effort! 3rd place paid $66.00
