The Tri-State Federation of the Ladies’ Bass Angler Association held a tournament on the Cane River Saturday, July 27. Five boats took to the waters of the Cane for a day of fishing competition before returning to Shell Beach for the weigh-in.

This event is the first tournament held in our parish by the LBAA. The Tri-State Federation comprises female bass fishers from Louisiana, Texas and Mississippi. The LBAA offers the only all female professional bass fishing tour in the country. The Cane offered a challenging fishing environment as well as opportunities to visit our well known attractions and restaurants when not on the water.

The winning team was Tiffany Hart of Magnolia, TX and Ashley Manuel from Lake Charles. The winning Co-Angler was Rebecca Briley from Lake Charles and the winning Boater was Tiffany Hart from Magnolia, TX,

The Natchitoches Parish Journal wishes to extend a warm welcome and best wishes to the women of the LBAA. We trust they enjoyed their visit to our city and parish and are looking forward to future tournaments on the parish’s waters.
