The third annual Louisiana Saltwater Series, hosted by the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries and the Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Foundation, continues to its next scheduled tournament site on April 28, 2012, in Lake Charles, La. at Calcasieu Point Landing.
Over $10,000 in cash and prizes has already been awarded, and there are lots of new promotions and prizes up for grabs this year.
Teams may consist of one, two, three or four members. For teams consisting of three or more members, only two of the members may be 16 or older. There is a $200 entry fee per team for each event. There is a 90 percent payout for the first six events with 10 percent retained for the championship. Payout is determined separately for each event based upon the total number of boats entered.
A youth division is also available for no additional cost to introduce our young anglers to the sport of fishing and to teach the catch-and-release approach to conservation. Youth division participants compete against one another for trophy catch. All anglers in this division will be recognized.
