Second place went to the team of Allen Smith and Jamie Goodin with 20.77 lbs. worth $530.00. Third place went to Brian Holt and Mike Livesay with 20.05 lbs. worth $310.00. Fourth place went to Jackie Nicely and Steve Bean with 18.87 lbs. worth $260.00. Fifth place went to Bobby Ferguson and Charlie McConnell with 17.10 lbs. worth $210.00. Sixth place went to Randy Carroll and Mike Hobby with 16.95 lbs. worth $150.00.
There was no smallmouth weighed in so the lunker was split 60% / 40%. Both first and second lunker went to the team of Gary Pilkenton and Denny Turner weighing 6.28 and 5.50 lbs. Both lunkers were worth $330.00. The $250.00 Watson’s Marine Contingency money went to the team of Allen Smith and Jamie Goodin for being the highest finishing Triton. Congratulations to our Anglers of the Year Tim Smiley and Steve Gibson. They received $1,000.00 for winning the points in the TN-I Division.
