The sixth stop of the 2019 tour was a Hudson lake that remained 8 foot above normal. It was the first time most boats could use a ramp and the traffic showed. The Corp of Engineers was dropping the lake a day before the event then shut it off, making it one of the toughest events of the year. This is also the last day event for the team trail that has qualifying point, and will also be the first drop.The AOY race is so tight all anglers were weighing fish to survive and climb the ladder to selection for the BASS Team Championship.
Wade Goins and Brett Fite landed the winning bag with a 4 fish limit that weighed 16.22. They did join the side pot and took home $1460 total in winnings for the effort.
Brandon Phillippee came in second with 4 fish total weight of 15.40 , followed by third place Keith Allen and Jeff Montgomery with a limit of fish for 15.35
Big Bass went to Chet Burrows and David Donnell tipping the scales at 6.38. Not the annual fish, but close and that's worth bragging about
Payout was completed and anglers sent home but not without our LOWEST TOTAL WEIGHT AWARD. Grand Lake Night, 2019 award goes to Mike Berido and Barry Reight with a single fish weighing 1.31 lbs earning the coveted $200 and the Lowest single weight for the year.
Chet Burrows won a 20 qt Pelican Cooler and others won headlights also donated by Pelican.
