USA Bassin' Team Tournament Trail on Cane River
Louisianas Red River Division kicked off its season on a challenging note. Anglers had obstacles to overcome just to make it to the launch site. Temperatures were 27 degrees and the State Patrol had closed numerous bridges and stretches of highway making it difficult to navigate to the Shell Beach Landing on the Cane River.
4 teams braved the conditions. Preparing to launch, these Louisiana anglers showed that a little bit of snow and ice wasn't going to deter them from attempting to fill their livewells. The official launch was at 6:45 am as anglers took to the water in search of a limit of fish. Weigh in set for 3pm.
The day was as "tough as I had ever fished" stated one of the anglers. Starting out with overcast skies and ending with mostly sunny skies and temperatures finally making it to the high 40s at weigh in. One team stood out above the fray and weighed the only limit of the day. The Team of Jeremy Hart and Ricky Stevens took the first place honors as well as big bass. Congratulations!
1 Jeremy Hart / Ricky Stevens

3 Garry Mccollum / Truitt Roberts
4 Jason Bordelon / Mike Briggs
