Two-night tourney set for August 5-6 at DH Marina

CELINA-Friday night tournament director Luke Sherrell announced Monday he will host a two-night tournament the weekend of August 5-6 here at Dale Hollow Marina and he said he was excited about the event.

“There haven’t been many two-nighters held on this lake and we are looking forward to it,” he said.  “We’ve talked about it for awhile and now we’re going to give it a shot.

“We hope everybody will come out and make it a good one.”

Sherrell said the event will blast off at 8 p.m. and end at 1 a.m. on both Friday and Saturday nights with the winners being determined by their combined total weight from both weigh-ins.

He also explained there would be a big-fish award given out each night.

The purse will be made up of an $100-per-boat entry fee and an additional $20 will be used to pay out the big fish awards.

“The total entry fee is $120 per boat and $10 will go towards the big fish pot each night with the rest going to the top finishers,” Sherrell said.

The tournament will feature a four-fish limit each night with any species of bass (KY spot, Largemouth, or smallmouth) being eligible to weigh in, creating a possible eight-fish total for the two-night event.
