Scott Bullitt Bass Tournament nearing

bullittBass fishermen needed!

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:

    If you are looking for an article in the coming weeks—here is something that may intrique you.

    The D’Arbonne Kayak Club is hosting a GO GREEN kayak paddle on Saturday, October 10 from 2:00-4:00. We will be participating with the American Canoe Association Stream to Sea Intiative to equip paddlers with a destination designed for trash clean-up. We will document the amount of trash collected and submit to ACA to share with NOAA and EPA. We have targeted Bayou DeLoutre as our cleanup destination and students from D’Arbonne Woods Charter School BETA program along with other adults will be participating in an 8 mile cleanup of Bayou DeLoutre. The DeLoutre was named by early French explorers because as they traveled up the DeLoutre from the Ouachita they stated that “the banks were teaming with otters spilling into the water”. The river is no longer teaming, but there is still evidence today of otters along our waterways. Keeping the habitat clean of debris and toxins is a critical part of their survival. The GO GREEN paddle is not only helping clean up a local waterway, but also part of a much larger world view of marine debris. Of the estimated 6.14 million tons of debris that enter marine environments each year, 80% of it is land based trash that enters from freshwater rivers and streams. Who better to help prevent the accumulation of marine debris than paddlers? The ACA has been implementing an on-going Stream to Sea Initiative that will equip users with the knowledge and tools necessary to clean navigable waterways and paddling environments while recreating. Utilizing the paddling community, one that already has a vested interest in the health of the nation’s waters, is an effective way to help remediate the growing amounts of debris that affect marine environments. Employing paddlers, a virtually untapped resource, in freshwater streams and rivers provides a sustainable network of stewards dedicated to reducing debris accumulation before it reaches coastal environments.
