With a weather forecast that initially predicted lightning for this weekend’s KATS tournament at Lake Fayette, many anglers felt uncertain about how the day would go. As the start drew closer, the forecast began to clear up a bit leaving only moderate rain throughout the day. Many of the 158 anglers who came out for the event were rewarded with huge limits.
In the Pro Division, Robert Morton III took home 5th place with a total 103.25 inches with his biggest bass at 22 inches, separating him from Mike Mashl’s (6th place) 103.25 score. In 4th place was Joseph Sanderson with 103.5 inches, just behind Guillermo Gonzales in third place with 104.5″.
Kenneth Davis took home his second consecutive 2nd place finish for the 2017 season with 106 inches even. Winning the event overall was Brandon Martin with a whopping 106.75 inches!
We saw three new faces on the stage in the social division. Clinton Goertz took home 3rd place with 87 inches, second place went to Christian Rowe for 69.6 inches, and Jeremy Morse took home the gold with a total of 87 inches.
