Okay.....the Championship is just a couple of weeks away and I think we will have a great event. To see the final standings go to the BOSS section...click on "learn more"...then click on "over standings"......that will show final points after all 4 events. The cut off of teams that made the Championship goes thru 476 points, excluding on team above that who did not fish all 4 tournaments. A total of 90 teams made it and We need you to sign up as soon as possible. We cannot divide the field until everyone enters. PLEASE PAY UP AND ENTER BY WEDNESDAY MAY 31 SO WE CAN FINALIZED EVERYTHING.
REMEMBER...THERE IS A 5 DAYS OFF LIMIT PERIOD, MONDAY THRU FRIDAY, BEFORE THE TOURNAMENT. Yes, I know Monday is a holiday but it is still off limits. ALSO...NO FISHING OR LAUNCHING ABOVE THE HWY 43 BRIDGE.
THURSDAY, MAY 11, 2017: The OVERALL STANDINGS for the BOSS Tournament Trail have been pulled. We have been having some technical issues getting the correct information calculated. Please be patient with us while we work to get this corrected. We hope to have it the correct information ready to post on Friday. Thank you.
THE FIRST ROSTER HAS BEEN POSTED. IT WILL BE UPDATED AS MORE TEAMS ENTER.
The roster will be posted here later today, still have teams entering so its not complete yet. Please look your team number up this evening so you know it...CORRECTLY...when you ck in. Start fishing time is 5:55 a.m. Stop at 3:00 and be cked in at Red River South by 4:00 p.m.. The trailer may be by the pavilion, not sure yet. If you fish the River remember that Cowleys, Barge Turn Around and Stephens Lake in Pool 4 are off limits. These areas have been off limits for years in every thing we do, and no...its not posted in and rules. It is the anglers responsibility to check on the area they wish to fish to see if its fishable waters. Good Luck , be safe and see you tomorrow.
Some questions about this weekends event and weigh in..........Nothing will change. I realize that the vast majority of teams will go to Cross lake and it would be more convenient if the weigh in was there. However, once we put something in print, we try to never change it unless its a safety issue. The Red River waterway Commission said today that they expected Red River South and the Launches in Pool 4 to remain open so that does not constitute a change. Also, it would only take one team not getting the message to cause a BIG PROBLEM. Thank you for your support and understanding, good luck and be safe.
The All City Championship is this coming Saturday April 22. Plenty of space left if you want to enter but.......
THERE IS A 5 DAY OFF LIMITS PERIOD, MONDAY APRIL 17 THRU FRIDAY APRIL 21.....THIS IS PRINTED IN THE RULES THAT YOU SIGNED. If you go in the lake this week you will be D Qed at Fridays Rules Meeting.

The BOSS Tournament is this weekend and there are a couple of things you need to know. The 2017 Tournament portion of the new website is still under construction so the roster and results aren't available on the website. So you will not be able to get your team number before this tournament. When you come to the check-in point Saturday, give Greg both last names and he will give you your team number. Please remember this number when you get up to the scales.
You do not have to select your lake when you enter the event. However once you select the lake to fish you cannot swap lakes during the day. THIS IS NOT THE BOAT SHOW TOURNAMENT.
Start fishing time Saturday is 6:39 a.m. Stop at 3:00 p.m., and be checked in at Red River South by 4:00 p.m.
The 2017 Sate Fair Boat SHow Tournament was a huge success. 93 teams entered and 38 teams got a check. Congrats to Kevin Guice and Jamey Myers for 1st place with 2 fish weighing 14.30 lbs to win $3,000.00. Second place and Big Bass went to Mike Craig and Jerry Lutterman, their big fish was 9.65 lbs and got $500 on top of the $2,000.00
Entry forms for B.O.S.S. are out now at Bayou, please go by and pick one up. The new format will be explained and if you have any questions just call me at 318 465-6453.
PLEASE NOTE: Recent TOURNAMENT NEWS posted here includes information about 3 events, so please scroll down to see all the different stories.
Don't forget to come by Bayou in the morning to sign up for the All City Championship. 8:30 $200 per team
BOSS TOURNAMENT FORMAT AND SCHEDULE (posted 1/11/17)
Bottom line -- The Sportsman's Paradise sucks right now. Many of the lakes that we use on our schedule each year are in bad shape due to the salvania and or draw downs. While individual anglers may not agree, from the logistical stand point for a 100 plus boat tournament we are in a bind. Also, the success B.O.S.S. has had over the last 5 years has created some issues. We have just about out grown the capacity of some of our favorite lakes. As a Tournament Director, dealing with complaints about overcrowding and discourteous competitors has increased each year. All this has prompted us to make a change in the 2017 Landers/Ram B.O.S.S. trail format. With 110 teams participating, we have about 220 different opinions and nothing suits everyone I realize. However, I did poll 14 different anglers and 13 were in favor of this new format and understood the reason behind the change, So here it is.
2017 B.O.S.S. Schedule
Feb 4: Scramble Choice of Black Lake, Bistineau, Caddo, Cross, Red River or Toledo Bend.
March 4: Choice of Bistineau or Black Lake.
April 1: Choice of Caddo Lake or Toledo Bend.
May 6: Choice of Cross Lake or Red River.
June 3 & 4: Championship. To be drawn at February Weigh In
Start fishing times will be 30 minutes before legal sunrise. Stop fishing will be at 3:00 p.m. and check in time at weigh site will be 4:00 p.m. ALL WEIGH INS WILL BE AT RED RIVER SOUTH MARINA OR TEAGUE PARKWAY DEPENDING ON AVAILABLITY.
This is a BIG CHANGE I know, but it will drastically reduce the number of boats on a given lake each month. The lakes were PAIRED for each month in accordance with the weights they are capable of producing. I sincerely hope that most teams that have and plan to participate understand these changes. If not, I respect your opinion and understand. But remember this change has been made with one intent -- to make the circuit better for the majority. Entry forms will be out by the Boat Show.
