On 5/6/2017 we travel to Kinkaid Lake for the fourth event of the season.

Steel City Members,

This weekend we travel to Kinkaid Lake for the fourth event of the 2017 season.

For those traveling down I-64 to IL 127 there is a message from the State of Illinois and the Illinois Department of Transportation concerning road closures due to construction activities. This has nothing to do with the local flooding. Please take this into account so that you arrive on time for the tournament.

As you can imagine from the large amounts of rainfall we have been getting that the lake is high. We have spoken to the Kinkaid Lake Management today and there are no plans to close the Paul Ice ramp or the Lake even though the rain is continuing today.

We will launch from the Paul Ice ramp at 5:30am (or when we can to safely launch the boats) on Saturday. For details on the ramp location please see the schedule page. Ed will be there at approximately 5:00am to collect the tournament fees.

Be at the ramp early please, so that we can get started on time.

Quitting time is 2::30pm on Saturday.

16-inch length limit 3-fish creel limit per person.

The tournament flyer is enclosed in this message so many of you can access it from your phones if needed.

Be safe. I look forward to seeing all of you there.

Ed Montgomery
