Tournament Director Announcement

Over the course of the last few weeks we have been watching the heat factors that surround this coming Saturday and the Billy Parker Lucky 13 Bass Tournament presented by the Wagoner Area Chamber of Commerce. As we all know heat is the number one killer of bass and the heat index can directly affect the anglers and volunteers that put on these events. This past weekend multiple weather stations have the heat index forecast for Saturday between 104 - 107 so we are shifting the start and weigh-in times to avoid the hottest part of the day. By starting at 6:00 AM and having the last flight due in by 1:45 we are hoping to have all fish weighed, polygraphs done and checks handed out earlier allowing the staff time to clean up and be on the road before it hits the hottest part of the day. 

Please make a note of your new fishing times in the table below. You can find your boat number and flight on the website

FYI, The morning bite has been really good so this shift will most likely put you in a better window to catch fish. We will be sending out information on tips to maintain livewells and how to keep your fish in the best possible condition before bringing them to the scales. We most certainly appreciate your patience and understanding as we mitigate this Oklahoma heat to keep our bass alive. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to reach out for answers.

Lucky 13 Update

We are excited to get the 19th Annual Billy Parker Lucky 13 under way. We have a great list of sponsors and as always the Wagoner Chamber of Commerce will guarantee $1300 for a 13th place finish. Our date this year is September 07, 2019 on Fort Gibson Lake and launching from the Taylors Ferry North Marina

How It All Began

Mr. Billy Parker started the Lucky 13 more than 30 years ago

 as a fundraiser for Muscular Dystrophy.  About 15 years ago Billy gave Cyrina Lang, a long time friend and avid supporter and organizer of local fishing tournaments, his blessing to use the Lucky 13 name and concept.  From there the Billy Parker Lucky 13 fishing tournament sponsored by the Wagoner Area Chamber of Commerce was born.
