Inaugural GFA Bass for Cash Fishing Tournament is an instant success!!

Shown above are Tre` Gautreau and Austin Abadie, the winners of the 2010 Gonzales Firefighter's Association Bass for Cash fishing tournament, along with Tournament Chairman Corey Gautreaux and Fire Chief Tracey Normand.  Tre` and Austin also managed to bring in the largest fish of the day, giving them the big bass award and adding to their winnings.  Most of the fishermen interviewed told us that there were plenty of fish to be caught, just not many keepers.  In all, 18 boats entered the tournament, making it a tremendous success for the first year.  The GFA plans to host the tournament again next year, and we encourage all who participated this year to please spread the word and come join us again.  We would like to thank Canal Bank Club for allowing us to host the tournament at their facility, as well as Cabela's and Wal-Mart for their tremendous contributions, and all our sponsors for helping to make this tournament successful.  We hope to see you all at Bass for Cash 2011!
