Kelley Hudson won this past weekends West Region Trail tournament on Possum Kingdom. Kelley had a five fish string that weighed 19.52 anchored by the Big Bass of the tournament, a 6.82lb Bass. Finishing in second place was Everett Moore with a five fish string weighing 15.79 and claiming the the final spot was Bobby Maynard with his five fish weighing 15.55lbs. A variety of methods were used by the winning anglers. Carolina rigged plastics on points, flipping cover, and swimbaits in cuts and coves proved to be productive ways of catching Bass. Congratulations to the winners. Next stop will be Lake Buchanan on April 22nd. We hope to see you there.
We have made a few changes to the Primary and Secondary menus above in an effort to group common areas of interest and provide more categories of information.
- The “High School” and “Junior” pages that were on the secondary menu have been moved to the primary menu under “Youth”.
- A “State Championship ” page has been added to the secondary menu. This will provide a place for information specific to the state championship to be displayed and stay visible for longer. We will also be able to display ALL state sponsors now. This will help in the effort to get more sponsors and meet our obligations to display logos and links to sponsor pages. The Sponsor Programs page will stay on the primary menu and provide detail about various awards programs offered by national sponsors.
- Regions can also display sponsors specific to their Region trails. Please see the South East Region’s solution to that need. They display one image on their Tournament page with all their sponsors. When that image is clicked, it takes the user to the SE Region Sponsors page where more detail is displayed about each sponsor.
Sometimes, when you’re not in the tournament, you just want to help out. So…if you want to help get professional anglers to the stage at the BASSMASTER Classic, call or email John Fontenot at email@example.com / 832-233-6500. You will be doing what we all do on Saturday, driving a truck pulling a boat. The only difference is, it will be at Minute Maid Park at the super bowl of bass fishing, March 24 – 26. Anyone willing to volunteer to work behind the scenes at the Classic, please contact John Fontenot. Thanks in advance!!
