This just in… Scott Holmes just caught another 11inch bass on a fluke, Bruce’s favorite letter is “w”, Bill Kervaski’s boat is still clean, Michael likes Tacos, Eric is a %$&*, Mr. White has a posse and Kyle found a 5lb bass under his hotel bed.
Wrapping up our season at Neely Henry. some fairly challenging (keeper) fishing conditions emerged. The two-day championship yielded an interesting blend of both Spotted and Largeheads. The large spots didn’t really show up…A-BEAR caught a good one…seriously. But, it was on a buzzbait…so I don’t know if you can really say he was fishing for “Spots”. The big dudes were LMB’s. The four biggest…Kyle 5.31…Kyle 5.12…Josh Dickert 4.60...and Mr. Howle found a 4.97 toad in the camo boat. The E man closes out Angler of the year with a victory on the co-angler side, in an effort that was more challenging than he probably expected. But he bought Matthew (his boater) sausage briskets on Sunday morning, therefore the bass showed up in the Hebert boat. Seriously, if you feed him…they will come. Great job Eric.
Oh, Bruce won the boater side...and AOY…

#1 Bruce: 19.74

Not that his head needs to get any bigger, but a huge thank you goes out to Bruce for an amazing Tournament Season - both on and off the water. Thanks, Bruce.
A huge shout-out to our newest member, Jake Maddox of Spain Park. He finished 2nd in this week’s Alabama High School Bass Fishing Association regional 3 tournament at Lay Lake on Saturday (100 boats). Jake had a three fish limit of 8.02. Great job, Jake. Ironically, he was bested by my friend’s son from Vestavia, Nicholas Maluff, who had an unimaginable three fish limit of 13.75. He’s a jr…I’ll get him on board next year.
