There were 18 teams that qualified to fish the Anglers Quest Rayburn Team Championship, But because of Hurricane Harvey messing with everyone's lives, only six teams were able to come out to fish....
Ricky Guy and Bobby Vice took the win with a two day total weight of 31.51 lbs.... These guys were sitting in second place after day one with 5 fish weighing 16.80 lbs, but pulled off the win on day two with a limit weighing 14.71 lbs. They won a total of $2,000.00 for fishing against just 5 other teams... CONGRATULATIONS !!!!
The team of Mike Johnson & Brian Adams came in a close, close second with a two day total of 30.44 lbs. A difference of 1.07 lbs out of first place. They led the first day with 16.91 lbs., but the second they came in just 1.08 lbs short of first place. They won $855.00 for their efforts on the water this weekend. Mike and Brian would like to Thank Mike Hollomon aka; Mr. Blitz, Jordan's Marine Pro Fuel, and Keith Carlile with LastCast Fishing Apparel for all their support !!!
Justin Cochran and Charles Ford came in third place with their two day total of 28.94 lbs. Justin and Charles walked away with two Denali Rods valued at over $300.00....
And the Biggest Bass of the weekend was a nice 7.82 lb'er caught by none other than Keith Carlile...... Keith had to fish alone this weekend as his partner Billy Barber had to work. Keith won $200.00 for that one bite and would like to give a big shout out to Team LastCast, Hook Spit Performance Rods, Chris Berry, A-1 Marine Products, Lifted Jigs, Bass Militia Fishing Team, Dedicated Ten and Bowden Marine (for keeping his boat running).
