B.A.I.T. TN-I on Douglas

Sunday, April 6, 2014, was a beautiful spring day for fishing. The weather was nice and the fish were biting! First place honors went to the team of Troy and Denton Jones with a nice limit of fish weighing 17.08 lbs. They netted $900.00 for their efforts. Second place went to the team of Ed Lewis and Marvin Perry with 16.78 lbs. and was worth $470.00. Third place went to Tim Smiley and Gary Pilkenton with 15.64 lbs. worth $230.00. Fourth place went to Greg Vinsant and Jack Faulkner with 15.34 lbs. worth $160.00.


There was no smallmouth weighed in so the lunker was split 60 / 40. First lunker largemouth went to the team of Steve and Chase Foster weighing 6.33 lbs. and was worth $110.00. Second largemouth lunker went to Wes Channell and Tommy Bryant weighing 5.38 lbs. and was worth $80.00. The points race is really tightening up! The Angler of the Year will receive $500.00 at the end of our next tournament.


B.A.I.T. and Bojangles along with Jefferson County Chamber of Commerce have teamed up to provide a little more money for payout over the season. We paid out $500.00 over our regular payout.
