Okay thank -- has -- Brian Lambert cajun fish and it mentions that you inject you modeled my web page. Where you calling on his cellphone when he's in country -- Bible 45595111. Get ready to wrap up our network edition of the outdoor show more -- will be coming up the bills that you listening to a song three WL a mile away at the -- it done in the outdoors guide dot com. We do have some. Local contestants who made the final cut today and it doesn't change in this HT -- V series no one at the punishment official loan. It's a single -- -- and I'll -- bass masters now. They also have increased the limit of five page which is the statement on relatives so that's too big changes in this year's tournament. Five this it gets a little bit sticky because if you remember now you got to have between sixteen and 27 inches. If you bring a 27 inch red Fijian. It's disqualified if that's over 27. The problem being if you bring in two marginal. And you -- possession of to finish measuring over 27 inches. That's of fisheries violation which disqualifies you totally from the tournament you don't just get -- -- -- so will be added trickery into that. Anyway -- they're all got to deal with a opposition in his -- Charlie Thomas and he's a local guy here from saint and Mardy Fish is not a whole dale area. Also captain Britain or as qualified and captain chain passing game that's -- it was in competition between. Cheney Charlie because those two guys have worked together for a long time and saying it was only just a few minutes ago he says well it's. Been friendly competition until that day and it's -- it's not -- little bit ugly gloves coming off so. I will hopefully be kept it up with them after they get to this spot in fuel efficient.

That's not the Torres park music and art. Judge for resident while you -- itself some great -- is there's going to be some live music in in the payment. A big goings on in his -- series is one of the highlights. I look and at the calendar as we move into the month of April. We got a lot of CCA banquets coming -- one for the North -- chapter will be Thursday April the tenth. 6 o'clock it's going to be casting senate. That's on pelican boulevard in man to build doors will open at six. And you know the drill at the dinner to follow in the auction is sixty dolls per person that does include -- membership does not include. -- star rodeo tickets and I'm given remind you you can beat it beat duke does for the next couple months. Make sure you get that ticket it's an insurance policy if nothing else every year somebody catches -- fears that a tank. In the -- -- miss out on the truck horrible gruesome other prizes and nobody thinks there haven't really catch one in news -- windows so anyway it's a good.
