There’s an important event coming to Lake D’Arbonne on Saturday, Sept. 26. It’s the LDWF Agent Scott Bullitt Benefit Big Bass tournament. Agent Bullitt was seriously injured when he was shot in the line of duty in May. Not only is he a veteran enforcement agent who protects and serves, he is also an avid outdoorsman and conservationist.
I know there are a lot of benefit events and they are all important. If you are a fisherman or do anything in the outdoors, this one should be special. Expect people from all over Louisiana and surrounding states to come to this one — which will be great for him and for Lake D’Arbonne.
This tournament, sponsored by the Louisiana Wildlife Agents Association on being put on by a group of volunteers in our area, is to help raise money to help him and his family with medical and other expenses. If you bass fish, consider entering this event. Plans are still in the early stages, but here’s the deal.
It’s a big bass tournament with a $100 entry fee. Entry blanks will be available in the next few days at area sporting goods stores. There is a FACEBOOK page set up for the event and you can click on photo, then the “Tickets Available” tab, print off an entry blank. Then just fill it out, write out your check and mail it in without even leaving your air conditioned living room! Here’s the site:
There will be six hourly big bass payouts and cash awards for overall big bass. Payout, based on 100 entries, is listed to the left. Hopefully the fishing community will come out in force and double that number. Marion State Bank and Batteries+Bulbs are the title sponsors. You can directly to this site to download a copy of the entry blank and rules as well:
Mark the date on your calendar. Even if you don’t bass fish, you can make a donation. Any checks should be made out to the Louisiana Wildlife Agents Association with a note “Scott Bullitt Fund” on the check.
