The fifth stop of the 2019 tour was the Grand Lake O' the Cherokees located in Grove, Ok. The lake level was 6 foot above normal and a little muddy from the lake dropping and a wind chop stirring things up. This was the first all-night, 12 hour, 10,000 cast, event for the team Trail. The AOY race is so tight event the anglers that do not like the night tournaments were forced to fish in order to drop a much less desired finish and possibly gain a point or two.
Brett McClintock and Billy Fuller landed the winning bag with a 5 fish limit that weighed 22.18. They did join the side pot and took home $1500 total in winnings for the effort.
Wade Goins and Brett Fite came in second with 5 fish total weight of 19.25 , followed by third place Aaron Stites and Bill Kilgore with a limit of fish for 17.63 anchored by the events big bass of 6.37.
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 Dustin Henry with a single fish weighing 1.80 lbs earning the coveted $200 and the Lowest single weight for the year.
This event was the first one to host the quantumfishing.com junk fish competition. Jeremy Dunn and Blake Gingerich brought in a huge carp like 12 something pounds to win a Quantum Smoke S3 baitcast reel.
