A film crew from The Angler Show in North Carolina will be on board shooting a piece on the trotline for ladies she has invented. Also a patent agent will be on board. Instead of throwing a trotline “way out there” her trotline will drop straight down and be anchored at the bottom. There is a five-gallon jug at the top.

There will be a silent auction at the check-in which is open to the public. Concession stands will also be open.

Those interested may register for the tournament online at or by calling Rick Lesley at 901-412-7683.
