Biologists To Monitor Bass Tournament On Grand Lake
GRAND LAKE, Okla. (AP) _ Biologists with the state Wildlife Department
say they'll closely monitor a huge bass tournament at Grand Lake this
The move comes after hundreds of fish died following a bass tournament at the lake last weekend.
Erickson with the wildlife department says 415 dead bass were counted
after last week's tournament and many more likely died. And assistant
chief of fisheries Barry Bolton says proper procedures apparently were
not followed for care of the fish after they were caught.
This weekend's Heartland Pro-Am Bass Tournament on Grand Lake is expected to attract more than 100 competitors.
River Dam Authority director Kevin Easley says summer fishing
tournaments on Grand Lake may be banned if fish kills continue.
