While Rex was reigning over Carnival, Marsh Man Masson was raking in the fish.
You don’t need a lot of bites to win a bass tournament. You just need the right five fish.
After locating some fatties last week, my son Joel and I set out to win a South Louisiana tournament on Mardi Gras Day.
While most of the rest of the nation worked, we threw Zoom Speed Craws (watermelon red candy), Zoom Speed Worms (junebug red), Rage Tail Menaces (watermelon red), H2O crankbaits (sexy shad) and Doomsday Tackle Reapers (watermelon red) to spawning fish in the marshes of the Bayou State. We came back with more weight than we thought we had, but was it enough to win?
The tournament was centered at the public launch on Highway 90 on the East Pearl River and organized by Paul Paille, head basketball coach at Mandeville High School. A dozen boats, most with two-angler teams, participated.
