We had another fantastic draw for the upcoming Hodges Tournament on March 16, 2013. As of now we have eleven (11) boats and ten (10) non boaters. If you did not sign up and are thinking about attending this event please notify Tournament Director Big Ed asap. Our founding Father Gabby Hayes will be cooking a barbecue during the 3:00pm weigh.
We have a DFG variance for 5 fish / 12″ minimum length. We will be conducting a “Mandatory” morning meeting for all contestants at the park entrance to Hodges. The meeting will take place at Big Ed’s boat at 5:45am sharp. We will hand out weigh slips to all contest participants at the morning meeting. You MUST be present to be in compliance for eligibility to this event so don’t be late. If you are stuck on the freeway and can not make the morning meeting call Big Ed on his cell to make arrangements.
Hodges angler pairings are as follows:
John Savko and Joe Nava
Gregg Springman and Alfred Vasquez
Mark Bowman and Eddie Obrien
Bill Layne and Charlie Gabaldon (guest)
Big Ed Cazares and Adam Day
Mike Martin and Joe Vermilyer
Kenny Isago and Mike Rupp
Gabby Hayes and Paul Herber
Randy Estrada and Tom Creasy
Dave Pisarski and Adrian Mesa (guest)
Ted Romero (solo)
According to Bass Contender policy all non boaters are required to contact their boaters no later than Wed March 13 at 8:00pm. This is not a local lake so non boater fees are $55.00 paid to the boater. Please notify your partners of the MANDATORY morning meeting to make sure everybody is on time.
UPDATE: April 13 & 14 Top Ten Tournament and kick off to the new Bass Contender season. We were unsuccessful in obtaining DFG permits and Perris SRA permits. The April two day tournament will be held at Lake Irvine. The combined total weight for both days will determine the winner for this event.
If you have any questions regarding the Hodges Tournament contact Big Ed.
