Location move - Oct. 15, 2016 "Autumn Colors" Tournament, Kewanee, IL

Recommended Posts

Don't forget the bucket prize for the 15th, going to be the best one ever! 

Undetermined at this time to what this prize will be awarded for. That's why it's called a surprise bucket prize.

We are nine days out, and the Kewanee forecast says a high of 72° and cloudy for Saturday, October 15.  I would guess, with the cooler nights, the carp will be more evenly spread throughout the lake, giving opportunities to both northside and southside participants.  

Peg choice is at 6:30 a.m.  Sunrise is at 7:15. so it might be a little dark at peg choice.  Fishing is from 7:30 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.  We will meet back at the SW parking lot (Shabbona/Keokuk) for awards.

Don't forget larry's surprise bucket.  I will also have more than one specialty event with medals and prizes.  Those will be posted in the next couple of days.

Openings are still available.

In addition to Larry's Surprise Bucket prizes, the October 15 "Autumn Colors" Tournament will feature two, rather than one, specialty events.  These events will be announced at peg draw and will include medals for the winners and a small bait/tackle prize.  Good luck.
