Hey guys.......I was holding out for some pics to post with the classic results, but haven't got them back yet...I'll post some later.
If you haven't ever fished Wheeler/Wilson Lake this might make you want to try it sometime......This was a record for SCA and for what I'm told is the largest winning weight ever recorded at a catfish tournament of 7 fish or less.....We had a 6 fish limit for two days......the top four teams weighed in a combined total of 904.7 LB's of Bluecats, that is a record for any catfish tournament in the U.S.A.....here again this is not 100% confirmed yet, but I believe we have set multiple records at this event...fourth place was Greg and Kim Ledbetter with a 6 fish limit of 186.6 LB, Kim also caught big cat on the second day with a 61.4 LB Blue......third place Andrew Wilbanks and Larry Muse with 212.2 LB of blues caught from Wilson Lake, 5 of the 6 weighed 198.14 LB and were weighed in the first day.......second place was Ray Ferguson with 242 LB he was also fishing Wilson in 10-20ft of water, he also weighed 5 the first day that topped the scales at 213.10 LB, and one blue the second that weighed 28.6......First place went to Richard Woodruff and Mike Mitchell with a six fish limit that weighed 263.15 LB, these blues came from Wheeler Lake, we also weighed 5 the first day that weighed 250.3 LB and only managed a 13.12 on the second day to finish the limit.....Richard had Big Cat of the event and year as well with a 63.9 LB Bluecat.....Overall there was a total of 37 cats brought to the scales that weighed 1185 LB's, thats an average of 32 LB per fish......$2600 in cash and prizes were awarded to the top 6 places....I appreciate everyone for making this year a huge success and would like to invite everyone to join us in the upcoming SCA events.
