Tommy Hill is on a Rayburn Roll !!! Not only did he win the last regular season Individual tournament, but he has won the last FIVE regular season Individual tournaments. It's no wonder he's the 2018 AQ Rayburn Individual Angler of the Year !!! But, Tommy Hill is not just a great fisherman, he's an all around great guy.... Just ask any of his competitors, they will all tell you the same thing, "Tommy Hill is a good guy"....Tommy came in first place Sunday on the individual with 18.99 lbs., after a third place finish the day before with his partner Bubba Frazier with 20.10 lbs. Tommy won $420.00 and clinched his AOY on Sunday. Way to go Mr. Hill !!!
 
Second place was Mr. Mark Richard. Mark weighed in his 5 fish at 14.12 lbs. for the second place money of $180.00... Great job Mr. Richard !!!
 
And Big Bass was once again caught by Jason Cochran. he had a nice
7.76 lb'er and he won $60 for that one bite ! Awesome catch Mr. Cochran !!
