Quality Ford in Coushatta is under new ownership and in an effort to promote the ties of the dealership to the community in Red River Parish, they are set to hold their inaugural "Big Bass Bonanza" on Grand Bayou just outside of Coushatta.

Next Saturday, July 10, all eyes, or rods as it were, will head to this 2,500 acre, lunker factory of a lake, to possibly catch the fish of a lifetime and be able to cash in on it!  And that big fish is a definite possibility as Bassmaster Magazine just declared Grand Bayou to be the 24th Best Bass Lake in the entire Central zone of the United States.

This will be a "one fish" or "Big Bass" style tournament as opposed to a "stringer" tournament and one hook set could net that angler a grand total of $750.

They'll have a total of seven hourly weigh in's from 7:00 am all the way through 1:00 pm with the first place finishers in those hours receiving $250, second $150 and third $100.  PLUS, the biggest bass overall in the tournament will receive another $500.

All the prize money is guaranteed regardless of the number of anglers competing.

Entry fee is only $60 per contestant.

To register just go by Quality Ford in Coushatta during regular business hours OR click on THIS LINK to sign up.

And I hope you'll join me on July 10th as Kiss Country will broadcast live for the final two hours of the tournament from 11:00 am until 1:00 pm and will crown the winner of the first ever Quality Ford Grand Bayou Big Bass Bonanza.
