The socring rules award 7 points for first bass caught, 7 points for biggest bass, and 3 points every bass caught. So in a 'defensive struggle' the Classic Champ bested his buddy by a score of 17-0.

FLW has announced the 2015 Rayovac FLW Series schedule

Teaser image: 
FLW has announced the 2015 Rayovac FLW Series schedule, which will again consist of three events in each of the five divisions – Central, Northern, Southeastern, Texas and Western.

Regarding the no-entry-fee Rayovac FLW Series Championship to be held on the Ohio River in Paducah, Ky.:
“Paducah’s identity was authored by the river,” said Fowler Back, Paducah Convention and Visitors Bureau Sales Director. “The major waterways that surround Paducah are the lifeblood of this community. Our interaction with the river has always included fishing, yet the Ohio River at Paducah remains an overshadowed fishery on a national scale. Hosting the 2015 Rayovac FLW Series Championship in Paducah will bring positive attention to the fishing resources here and our new boat launch will be an excellent portal to make this happen.”
The top 30 pros and co-anglers in the final point standings in each division after three qualifying tournaments will advance to the 2015 Rayovac FLW Series Championship provided they fished all three qualifiers in a division.
“The Ohio River at Paducah is a tremendous fishery,” said FLW Series Tournament Director Ron Lappin. “It is not uncommon for it to take well over 20 pounds to win a single-day tournament there. Anglers who have not fished the river in a few years will be pleasantly surprised with how well it fishes.”
Details of the 2015 are as follows:
