Morgan Sprull and Tom Ridley made a statement on the final day with nearly 20 pounds to pull off the win by 0.02 pounds - that's two one-hundredths of a pound - over Donnie Feagle and Joey Wood. They pocketed over $9,500 plus big fish money - not a bad payout for winning a 25-boat tournament. Hear them tell how they won the big money in the Bienville Plantation Big Bass Blast Clasic.
Jake Gipson and Charlie Hurst, fishing for the University of Alabama, placed 2nd among 130 boats in this weekend's Carhartt College Southern B.A.S.S. Regional. Gipson has been there before. In fact, he's been better. He and former partner Matt Wercinsky founded the University of Florida club and won a pair of national titles for the fishing Gators when Gipson was an undergrad - and half of the most dynamic duo to ever compete in collegiate fishing. Now a grad student, Gipson has taken his winning ways to an established collegiate angling program.
Alabama's Jake Gipson and Charlie Hurst had taken the lead with a 24 pound, 15 ounce sack of Okeechobee bass but Kyle Oliver and Hunter McKamey from the University of Central Florida stepped to the scale with more than 20 pounds of their own to run their 2-day total to 39-12 and win the Carhartt College Southern B.A.S.S. Regional! See them do it, hear them tell how.
It was winner-take-all at the Bassmaster Wildcard presented by Star Tron on Lake Okeechobee. Shaye Baker led for 2 days. Jesse Tacoronte made a late charge.
