If catching bass and winning prizes isn’t enough, throw this big bonus in the landing net: participating in the Scott Bullitt Bass Tournament Saturday, Sept. 26, on Lake D’Arbonne is for a great cause: helping aid wounded LDWF enforcement agent Scott Bullitt and his family.
“I can’t think of a nicer guy, more dedicated and more deserving guy to help than Scott,” says his partner Josh Harris. Harris was with Bullitt the night he was attacked. Harris was fortunate to not be injured, but he isn’t about to leave his partner behind. Harris and other local volunteers are heading up the effort to raise funds in this event, sponsored by title sponsors Marion State Bank and and Batteries+Bulbs plus numerous other local and area businesses.
It’s a big bass tournament with a $100 entry fee. Entry blanks are available 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, and 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:
