I want to personally thank everyone that fished and supported our division this year. Despite the covid-19 issues and having to reschedule and push tournaments back to a less desirable date we still managed to average 55 teams per tournament. We had 88 different teams to fish at least one of our tournaments. It is an honor and a blessing for me to serve as director and I could not do it without our dedicated Staff. Curtis Cox, Shawn Williams, Brent Robertson, Tim Ramey and my wife Jenua, Kenneth Shumate and Michael Norman. We have a great group of anglers fishing and supporting this trail and it’s by you spreading the word and promoting our division that we can continue to grow. Lord willing next year we will get back to an early spring schedule with continuing our morning meetings and also increasing our guaranteed payouts. I look forward to seeing all of you soon. Call or text me anytime if you have any questions, comments or recommendations to help the success of our division and this ministry.
