HULAH TO HOST FISHING TOURNEY

The Hulah Lake Association will host a crappie fishing tournament Saturday.

Entry fees of $25 are due by 5 p.m. Friday in order to avoid a $5 late fee. The final deadline for signups will be at noon Saturday at the Wah-Sha-She campgrounds.

There is a five-fish limit and the biggest stringer will win. (Note: All fish must be alive when they are weighed in.) A 70-percent payout will include 50 percent for first place, 30 percent for second and 20 percent for third. A $10 “big fish pot” will be winner-takes-all.

A Kids Tournament for ages 15 and under also is scheduled. Entry fee is $10 for the youth event, which will have prizes awarded to the first- through third-place finishers.
