Tournament Winners

Record turnout, record payouts…

We had 32 anglers at our first Tour Event for 2021. Cullaby and Sunset proved a little tricky for some, with their tannic, tea-colored water, and weedy, shallow bottom. Only five anglers caught limits, but local angler Ed Arden came out on top with a 77.75 inch bag.

This was the first Tour Event featuring our Payout Bonus Boosters and Big Bass Booster. between those sponsor contributions and the high number of anglers, we saw record payouts.

  1. Ed Arden – $908.60
  2. William Eschliman – $369.60
  3. Kyle Dickson – $216.60
  4. Jakob Jarvis – $46.20
