The scheduled NewJen tournament for 3/9/19 at Clearlake has been RESCHEDULED to 5/11/19.
As hard as it is to cancel any event, the safety of our angler’s is ALWAYS our top priority. In addition, being good citizens to the communities that we support is paramount to the NewJen mission. Clearlake will be closed to all boat traffic if the coming storm brings the lake level above 10 feet, and although it hasn’t reached that limit, running a tournament knowing that boat wakes will make their way into homeowners homes simply doesn’t feel right. Floating debris will also make the lake dangerous for our angler’s especially with rain in the forecast for Saturday and the visibility issues that it creates.
That all being said, the bass will be waiting for us under much better conditions that we can all feel good about. We wanted to get the word out early so Angler’s didn’t invest time with travel and prefishing expenses for this event. Stay safe, stay dry, stay patient. The bass will still be biting later.
Sending prayers to those whose homes are being affected by the flooding!
