On Saturday, March 3, More than 400 fishermen in 202 boats participated in the 2nd annual Children’s Hospital Bass Classic at Doiron’s Landing in Stephensville, La., which raised nearly $70,000 to help fund ongoing operations of the hospital’s emergency transport helicopter.
Anglers Cliff Crochet and Tyson Mire won the tournament with five bass weighing in at more than 21 pounds and took home the $12,500 first prize in this catch-and-release tourney, while Tracy and Josh Son won the big bass contest’s $1,250 first prize for their 7.3 pound lunker.
On Thursday, March 1, fishermen enjoyed Cabela’s, the tournament’s presenting sponsor, pre-party, which featured great food, beer, soft drinks, and a terrific array of prizes. Children’s Hospital would like to thank tourney host and Cabela’s Marketing Manager Christine Pocorello and Classic Chair Gary Cross, Cabela’s, the Baton Rouge Airport, Ralow Services, ORGS, Jefferson Auto Service, Mockler Beverage Company and Buquet Distributing Company for their
generous support of the event.
