I probably caught only seven or eight keepers, but it was just a tremendous grind. I caught my big one (a 6-pounder) on the last cast I made. ”
The biggest bass of the day was weighed in by Cypress, Texas, pro James Kiser, who had a 6-15 largemouth. The fish bolstered his 19-10 limit of largemouth, helping him move into second place.

Tony Koregalos who finished high in last year’s event with a monster bag of bass that went over twenty pounds, is looking forward to the event and a chance at a repeat performance. “We know a lot of teams that will be throwing A-rigs all day, but not us. A-rigs may get you a check, but we are not looking for second place or anything else like that…we’re looking for the win – and that means we will be throwing big swimbaits”.

Boat rigging workshop & clinic

If you own boat, whether you bought it brand new and fully rigged, or bought it used and equipped it “piece by piece” over time, how that boat is rigged, and how much you understand about its configuration is critical to your success and/or experience on the water.
