This time of year, as the water temps increase, 8 to 10 pound fish are common, with big jigs and big swimbaits being one of the quickest way to find success.
And, as the Future Pro Tour stands ready to deliver its best season ever, offering members gauranteed paybacks of over 80%, premium out-of-the-money prizes, cash bonuses for Anglers of the Year, limited sponsorship opportunities from leading manufactures such as Lucky Craft, Lamiglas, Gamakatsu, Limit Lures, and Dobyns Rods, - plus the opportunity to win a fully-rigged 2008 Ranger 188vs with E-Tec 150 in its all-amatuer championship, - all for just a $90 per team entry fee, it would do well for those wishing to compete to give themselves as much opportunity as possible to be prepared for the ensuing battle.
And to help Future Pro Tour members figure out how to pattern those wily Pedro bass, this Friday, March 7th at C&C Marine in Modesto, we will host a fantastic pre-registration seminar where you can get the scoop from some of the west's best pro anglers on what's going on at the lake, giving you a better chance at making it to the winner's circle come game day!
At our OPTIONAL pre-registration seminar, we will feature Lake Don Pedro "guru" Don Payne a veteran pro who has successfuly fished Lake Don Pedro for over 50 years in team and Pro/Am competiton, and he will share some of the secrets it took him nearly a lifetime to learn!
Pre-registration activities will be held from 4-7pm, and there will be free food and cold drinks for everyone as you meet/mingle with C&C Marine's pro-staff members and your fellow competitors, while browsing C&C Marine's updated selection of tackle products and complete line of new Ranger Boats.
EVERYONE is invited – even if you don't fish Future Pro Tour events, and immediately following the pre-registration/seminar activities, there will be a FREE raffle for great prizes - including a Hummingbird fish finder valued at $400!
For those of you that want to be “Future Pro-Active” and get your boat ready for 2008 competition, call C&C Marine right now and talk to new owner Jim Moulton to setup an appointment for the excellent 5-star service you have come to expect from C&C Marine.
Late signups will be taken the morning of the event in the parking lot of Fleming Meadows, with a limited membership fee of only $5 dollars for those wanting to perhaps "try out" the Tour.
So come down next Saturday, and let's get ready to rumble at the FPT's central valley season opener on Don Pedro..It's gonna be a blast!
