I called up my good friend and awesome photographer Ted Connolly Thursday night about meeting up to take some photo’s and catch up on old times in  Bath, IL population 350 for the 10th annual event. Well when I arrived around 9:00 a.m. the town had already tripled in size. Today was the start of the 10th annual Redneck Fishing Tournament on the backwaters of the Illinois River. The event was started by Betty DeFord, manager of the Boat Tavern. There were around 40 boats entered for 1st session. Each boat pays a $ 50.00 entry fee and is required to have a current 2014 fishing license. The men and women dress-up in various outfits and have fun while trying to eradicate the Asian Silver Carp. Hope that you like my snaps of the tournament and if you get the chance put it on your calendar for next year. Be sure to check out Ted’s awesome photo’s at http://tedconnolly.smugbug.com.
