Tom Behrens has over 50 years experience in fishing and hunting across the United States. Much of this time was spent in Oklahoma and Texas where he became very familiar with the outdoor opportunities in these states. You may contact him by email at: tomdoglover29@aol.com




The Bayou State squad, which is composed of 10 boaters and 10 nonboaters, caught 135 bass over two days for a cumulative weight of 379 pounds, 2 ounces. Second place Team Arkansas finished second overall with 135 bass for 367-13.

Louisiana B.A.S.S. Nation Pesident, Kevin Gaubert was reported as saying when you get to this level, it’s all the top anglers in your state. You come here and do your best, put your time in and hope everything works out in your favor.


Next up is the individual competition in the Central Regional. Nine Louisiana anglers will move to the next round, which includes the top three boaters and nonboaters from each state, as well as the leading 38 anglers on the money line.


In all, 62 boats with 124 anglers will fish Friday for individual state honors, cash prizes and a chance to represent their team in the B.A.S.S. Nation Championship to be held later this year on an undisclosed date and fishery.
