The day started out super windy and a lot colder than most expected, and while many struggled to find good fish, Tournament Champions Adam Pels and Chris Pels brought in five fish weighing 23.82 pounds, including their 10.59 monster big bass that also won them the first Big Bass payout! Defending Squaw Creek Anglers of the Year Chris Stewart and Pete Hernandez came in a close second with five fish for 22.04 pounds, and Brandon Greenberg and Brad Hardt took home third with 19.80.
Dee Trammell and son Josh Trammell are still leading the DFW West division AOY Race, but returning Squaw Creek AOYs Chris Stewart and Pete Hernandez made up some major ground and are less than six points behind in second place, and Tom Kressley and Jonathan Davis are sitting in third. This one is going to come down to the last event on Ray Roberts!
Casie Telles and Kevin Strickland have taken the lead in the North Texas AOY Race after two events, but the season is still early and with three events left, it’s still anyone’s game!
