The 2014 season of the Angler's Choice Lake Monroe Division kicked off this past Saturday with 20 teams looking to get things started off with a win. High muddy water dominated the lake but our anglers still figured out how to catch some fish.
The team of Ed Bauer and Bob Garner pulled out the victory by a slim 3 tenths of a pound margin to claim the SMI MARINE First Place Plaques and $1067.00 dollars. They landed a solid bag of bass that came in at 10.45 pounds.
Second Place went to the team of Mike Crays and Jeff Poteet. They brought in a nice bag weighing in at 10.15 pounds which also included the Big Bass of the event at 6.65 pounds. What a PIG!!! Mike and Jeff walked away with $604 for second place and another $200 for Big Bass.
Third Place and the OUTDOORSMAN SPORTSHOP SECOND BIGBASS AWARD went to the team of Travis Feuerbach and Nate Pendill. They had two fish for 8.65 pounds including the Second Big Bass Award with a 5.77 pound bass. They walked away with a check for $354.
The First team out of the money was Dean and Rex Remington who claimed two bottles of BASS BOAT SAVER and a huge tackle pack from BAUERS CUSTOM BAITS.
