We went there last year clueless to the contest. So many boats I would guess 200 just in the reedsport area And we were there before first legal and had a good sized line and barely got a spot in the parking lot. If I had my boat ready by then which it prolly wont be fore almost another week i would be there doing it all over again but this time in it to win it.
