We’ve got a buffet of news today. Let’s start by getting a little bit racy. Starting with this weekend’s Battle on the Bonne boat races, there are three big events planned plus all the usual lake activities.
The Battle on the Bone sponsored by 2High Trampoline Park, Halley Timber, Eagle Point Boat & RV Storage and Ludwig Marine.
Then comes the annual Fourth of July Fireworks shows and other activities on the lake, followed by the biggest of them all, the annual Watermelon Festival at the end of July. Mark your calendars. Strap up your life vest and get ready to party.
And how about those high school anglers?

And, the big boys have been doing some fishing, too. Check this out!
The new Major League Fishing Pro Bass Tour held it’s 2019 General Tire World Championship on a group of Louisiana lakes out of Vidalia and the six-week series of TV shows that reveal the winner begins this weekend. In a unique twist, the tournament is in the books, but you’ll have to wait for the made-for-television event to be aired to find out who won.
The six, hour-long competitions were filmed on Lake St. John, Lake Bruin and Black River Lake late this spring.
Starting Saturday, June 22, the CBS Sports Network will televise the first of six rounds, and will continue on subsequent Saturdays until the last round which will show the champion. The winner will be kept secret until the final show airs. Each show is set to air at 1 p.m. CDT.
The top dozen qualifiers on the tour this year are in the Championship — Aaron Martens, Brent Ehrler, Skeet Reese, Brent Chapman, Mike Iaconelli, Ish Monroe, Gary Klein, Takahiro Omori, Bobby Lane, Andy Montgomery, Jacob Wheeler and Edwin Evers.
Three Louisiana anglers fish the MLF circuit — Greg Hackney and Gerald Spohrer of Gonzales and Cliff Crochet of Pierre Part. None of the three successful pro anglers qualified for this year’s championship, however, the 2018 MLF Championship was won by Hackney.
