    The Central Divisional for 2012 was held June 6 to 8 at the Atchafalaya Basin at Morgan City, Louisiana. The team consisted of Boaters: Ted Daniels, Kevin Smith, Greg Cooper, Bill Keesee Jr., David Smith, Justin Pace; Non-boaters: Tim Bankston, Gerald Pelzel, Harold Stark, Charles Harrington, Dan Chickering; Alternate: Daniel Stark; Team Captain: John Blankenbeker; 11 to 14 year old junior: Nathan Adams and 15 to 18 year old junior Brian Pahl. The tournament started with two days of practice, which included at least one alligator caught and released and a banquet on Tuesday evening.

    Wednesday the fishing started in earnest. Louisiana led after the first day and maintained their lead throughout the tournament. Missouri came in fourth that day and also kept that position throughout the tournament. Greg Cooper led Missouri the first day with an overall tournament place of fourth. Of course the rain held off until just as the barbecue was almost finished and then came down in a flood. Still everyone seemed to have a good time and they were able to help each other out for the next day.
