EverStart fishing series to host event
CALLIHAM -- The EverStart Series is headed to Choke Canyon Jan. 20-22 for the first of four stops in the Texas Division. Pros and co-anglers will be competing for top awards. Pros will fish for a top award of $35,000 plus a 198VX Ranger boat with 200-horsepower outboard. Co-anglers will cast for a top award consisting of a Ranger 177TR with 90-horsepower outboard and $5,000 if Ranger Cup guidelines are met.
While Choke Canyon is known for large bass, many top pros struggle when asked for more specifics about the body of water.
“I’ve never been to Choke Canyon,” said Rice Krispies Treats pro Jim Tutt of Longview. “I can’t find any fishing reports on the Internet and I don’t know anybody who has fished it.”
If Tutt’s answer is any indication, local knowledge may play a large role in the Choke Canyon event.
Anglers will take off from Choke Canyon State Park in Calliham at 7:30 a.m. each morning. Weigh-ins will be held at the marina beginning at 3 p.m. daily. Takeoffs and weigh-ins are free and open to the public.
The EverStart Series tournament on Choke Canyon is being hosted by the Three Rivers Chamber of Commerce.
