Burrrrrr..... It was a cold cold day in January, but a total of 56 amazing fishermen came out to brave the weather, the cold, the ice, and fished the first of eight Anglers Quest Team Events on Sam Rayburn.
 
Phillip Crelia and TJ Goodwin came in with the winning weight of five bass weighing 24.55 lbs. I'm not sure how or where they caught them, (with some mega tournaments coming up, all the fishermen are a little tight lipped ). They still walked away with a check for $2,000.00. Way to go guys!!!
 
Ronnie Yawn & Perry Nelms came in a close second with 5 that weighed 23.09 lbs. Again.... no info, but they won $1,050.00. Congratulations !!!
 
Third place was held by Robert Moore & Matthew Moore a father and son team to watch out for... these guys brought in 5 that weighed 21.87 lbs. and they took home the third place check for $640.00.
 
Fourth place was held by the 2016 Anglers of the Year Rusty Clark & Cory Rambo. They brought 5 to the scales that weighed 17.76 lbs. and took home $420.00.
 
Garrett Pierce & Roy Wade took the last place money of $250.00 for their 5th place weight of 17.31....
 
The Biggest bass of the day was caught by the team of Ricky Guy & Bobby Vice. It tipped the scales at 6.87 lbs., and they received a check for $200.00 for that one bite.
 
The weather made for a rough cold day, but never doubt how very much I appreciate each and every one of you for coming out to fish Anglers Quest.
This month marks 20 years for Anglers Quest, and I gotta tell ya it ain't easy running tournaments. But just knowing you guys still enjoy fishing AQ, keeps me doing it year after year... I'm looking forward to many, many more!!!
 
I want to be sure and thank my sponsors that have stuck with me through the years. Without their support I just couldn't continue, so thanks again!!!
