    It's about time that we get a great river circut like this. This is the one you don't want to miss. Thanks Matt and the others involved for making this happen. I'm looking forward to fishing the river in 2006.

    Hey Matt,
    Does the $200 entry fee include big bass ?

    No, were doing a big bass at the ramp. But I'm working on a sponsorship with a company that would put everyone in a big bass pot regardless if they participate. I'm hoping to get $1,000 per event to go into a roll over big bass pot that does not payout unless the fish is 3lb's or bigger for example. This would be over and above the regular big fish, but would also be free to all anglers. I'm hoping to wrap it up by March.

    Matt
