Championship Day of The Fishers of Men Team Series District 8 Championship Presented by Berkley is underway from beautiful Bull Shoals Lake in Theodosia Missouri. We will crown a Champion today and 7 teams will earn a berth into the National Championship March 12th -14th on the Harris Chain of lakes in Leesburg, Fl. Look out Mickey here we come.


The weather for day two has changed a little from yesterday as we have cooler temperatures this morning with some cloud cover as the 22 teams began to leave in search of a limit of bass hopefully toped off with a good size kicker fish. As the day progressed the clouds gave way to sunshine and warm beautiful weather.


After all the teams had weighed their fish it was time to crown the champion. The AR NW team of Arthur Fortin and Caleb Cline climb all the way from 5th place to take the win with a five fish limit weighing 15.38 lbs. giving them a two day total of 27.39 lbs. The team of Dillon Statler and Ryan Groeteke from MO Ozarks had a five fish limit weighing 11.42 lbs. giving them a total of 26.63 lbs. for the two days to take home second place. Dillon and Ryan also had big fish for day two weighing a 5.42 Largemouth. Third place went to the Al North West team of Mike Crump and Del Colvin with a total weight for two days of 24.44 lbs. Fourth place went to Larry and Phillip Harris from TN Central with a two day weight of 23.79lbs. The AR NW team of Justin Keister and Jason Mathews rounded out the top five with a total weight for two days of 22.33 lbs.
