"Shoaliepalooza"presented by  Crescent Kayaks

    May 3-4th, 2024

    Thomaston, GA

@ The Ritz Theater


Shoaliepalooza! The rare black bass species, nicknamed the Shoalie, is probably on most angler's bucket list, so why not kick the series off with the event we're calling "Shoaliepalooza!" This gives anglers an additional reason to get down to Georgia and catch their first shoal bass! Anglers will choose the Flint, Chattahoochee or Ocmulgee for shoalies, but don't overlook the 2 lakes (High Falls & Juliette) that are also in bounds because this event could sneakily be won with largemouth or Alabama Bass too!?!

Thomaston, GA, is literally the epicenter of shoal bass fishing, so it only makes sense to make this town our tournament HQ, where we'll hold all the festivities. The town is pulling out all the stops and declaring this a city wide "Shoaliepalooza" for our Saturday festival, complete with live music, a kids zone, food trucks, Toyota truck demos, merch tents and much more!

Our Closing Ceremonies will take place in the historic Ritz Theater, boasting seating for over 400. You better get your popcorn ready because Drew Gregory & Alex Rudd are going to MC a kayak fishing awards SHOW you won't want to miss!
