Looking to match your skills against some other anglers? Maybe father/son teaming up to show other how it's done? RLP hosts numerous bass and catfish tournaments every year.

BASS TOURNAMENTS

Our bass tournaments bring a good group of fisherman together. Typically having 10 boats present all looking for their five fish limit of lunkers, what better way to spend a Saturday morning! A winner catch at this bass fishery can sometimes go over 18lbs!
