Rick Ficker mentioned that the TN Department of Conservation asked that we do not release the fish in the Paris Landing Marina because of low oxygen content in August. They asked if we could release them in the main lake. Rick Ficker is arranging a release boat for this event. A normal livewell is not big enough for the entire tournament catch (except for Franks boat). The club will pay the fee for the release boat.
