Sunday Open Tournaments

I am posting this to see if there is any interest in getting Sunday Electric Only pot tournaments going.

I work 3rd shift and into Saturday mornings and am unable to fish any of the club events without having to stay up for 24+ straight hours.

I am shooting to do maybe 4 tournaments, once a month, March-June. No membership fees, open to anyone, 100% pay back, team events.

I will avoid all of the major Holiday weekends for the schedule (Easter, Mothers Day, Memorial Weekend, Fathers Day) to make it easier.

I'm not 100% sure of the lakes, but it would be something like, Hickory Log Creek, Rocky Mountain, Carters ReReg, Acworth..... Or it could be a couple of these lakes twice.

If you have interest in something like this please let me know. I will try to have official dates within the next week or so.

Thank you!
Based on the amount of feedback I have received regarding the Sunday Open Tournaments, I am hoping we have a pretty good turn out for these events.

I will try to get rules posted in another week or so, but they are basically going to mirror the rules for any club event.

This is not a league, these are open events. Entry Fees will be $40-$50 boat, that will include the Big Fish Pot as well. There will be trophies for 1st place.

I have made the schedule below to avoid any Holiday/Special days(Easter, Mothers Day, Fathers Day, Memorial Weekend), and have made sure we are not fishing a lake that was fished in a club event the day before.

Here is the schedule:

Sunday, March 26: Hickory Log Creek Reservoir
Sunday, April 23: Rocky Mountain
Sunday, May 21: Lathem Reservoir
Sunday, June 11: TBA (We will probably take a vote)

If you have any questions or would like to confirm an event that you plan on attending, please call or text me at 404-295-8828. I would like to get an accurate head count 2-3 days prior to each event if possible.

Thank you,


1st Tournament will be on Hickory Log Creek Reservoir this weekend, Sunday, March 26th.

Next event will be on Sunday, July 9th at Lathem Reservoir. This is the rescheduled event from back in May. This will be from Safelight-3:00 pm, or will be adjusted from whenever the gates are open. Due to increasing temps this will be a 3 Fish limit. If you are interested, plan on going, or need more info, please feel free to reach out to me.
