Remember Saturday (April 2) is the second annual King of King’s tournament on Lake D’Arbonne. The fisherman (or fisherwoman) who catches the largest bass and the largest crappie will be crowned King for the year. You can get your tickets at the Chamber, TaterBugs or other local businesses Friday! Weigh-in will be at D’Arbonne Pointe.
It’s a single pole tournament, which means you can’t spider rig or even hold a pole in each hand. One line in the water at a time.
Besides the crown, the winners will get $750 dollars each (up from $500 last year) with a total of $2,000 in prizes. The second place winners this year also get $250. Weigh-in will be at D’Arbonne Pointe. Hurry up and win before all the new taxes in Louisiana go into effect!
What’s unique about this event is you can fish from the boat, the dock, the bank or wade out in the lake if you want. You can find out more information from sponsor Union Parish Chamber of Commerce or the host Bayou State Crappie Association.
There’s another unique thing about this tournament as well. Local fishermen are being asked to volunteer to take wounded veterans out for the day as part of the Louisiana Hunters for Heroes event. Its simple host a Veteran, visit, fish and have fun! For more information about this part of the tournament, contact Brandon Jennings @ 318-533-9259 or Donnie Vocker @ 318-278-2909. We’ll be fixing jambalaya for the group on Friday night, with groceries donated by Terry Morris and Big Star of Farmerville.
