For the win, he took home $370 cash and a 40-qt Icey-Tek Cooler. Daniel also claimed the PowerTeam Lures Big Bass of the Tournament with his fish worth $150, a custom kit from PowerTeam lures, and a HOOK1 Gear Bag valued at $200.

Seth Lassitter came in 2nd place with a spotted bass measuring 14.75”. Seth said he caught his fish on a  lipless crankbait. Second place paid $250 cash and a $75 PowerTeam Lures gift card.

Several other prizes were raffled off from our sponsors including Caney Fork Outdoors, Dicks Sporting Goods, and Hag's Tornado Lures. A special thanks to Dr. Josh Crowder and Crowder Eye Center for providing the identifiers for the tournament.
