There were 16 out of the 22 qualifiers that showed up to fish the Anglers Quest Houston team Championship. There was over $7,000.00 in cash and prizes to be had.....The weather was beautiful on Saturday with the temps in the low 90's, but Sunday was a different story. Take-off was at 7:10am with the National Anthem starting at 7:08am. Then the front came through not only dropping the temp, but bringing Thunder, Lightning and Rain. For some that was a good thing because it turned on their fish. All in all it was an exciting weekend for fishing.......
Tim Newman and John Littleton won the two day event with 10 fish that weighed a total of 23.36 lbs..... They took home a total of $3,270.00 for their weekend on the water.....John reports; "Caught our fish on Stanley Viber Shaft spinner baits and shallow running Crank baits. Also Caught fish on Zoom Trick worm. We would like to thank Kistler for the rods we use and Stanley for the baits that we use, we couldn't have won with out them." This was the third Championship in a row that John won and the second in a row for Tim.... WAY TO GO GUYS !!!!
Greg Crawford came in second place fishing by himself this weekend as his partner Lee Lacour was spending time with his wife who is presently in the ICU.... please keep her and Lee in your prayers..... Greg fished all over the Lake and threw Crank baits and plastics to catch his fish. Greg won a total of $1,960.00. He is sponsored by Crawford Technical Services Inc., and his lovely wife Judy.... Greg and Judy are long time Sponsors of Anglers Quest and all around good people....
Craig Morris and Cody Swann came in third place with their two day total weight of 22.13 lbs. These guys fished hard and brought a limit in both days. They won a total of $1,310.00 for their efforts on the water this weekend.. Congratulations guys !!!
Michael Streeter and his brother Daniel Streeter teamed up this year and came in fourth place in this championship with their two day total weight of 21.14 lbs.... They were in second place after day one, but couldn't get that 5th fish in the boat on day two but each took home a DENALI Rod for their efforts this weekend....
The biggest bass of the weekend was caught on day one by the team of Brad Deal and Steve Ubernosky. It was a nice 7.33 lb'er and they won $300.00 for that one bite.
Tansley Bynog Sr. and David Wheaton caught the second biggest bass of the weekend on day two, it was a nice 4.82 lb'er and they won $180.00 for that one bite....
