Watson & McFadden Claim 2022 Berkley Team Series District 3 Championship presented by Realtree Fishing

After Hurrican Ian forced the cancellation of Day 1 Seventy Teams were eager to get going on Saturday for what would be a 1 Day shootout on Lake Murray. The question was would the 2-4 inches of cool rain that fell on Thursday mess up the bite as Murray had been by all acounts on fire up through practice.

While many teams struggled to figure out what happened to their fish the team of Mike Watson and Craig McFadden made it look easy as they bested the field by over 5 lbs with a limit that tipped the scales at 25.49 lbs. Included in their Bag was the days Big Bass a 5.44 lber which means their other 4 had to average 5 lbs a piece. Great Catch fellas. Altogether they earned over $5000

Finishing 2nd was the always tough Upstate team of Michael and Jon Anders who brought a limit that weighed 20.42 lbs to the scales. They took home over $2700

In 3rd was the Lowcountry Team of Joey Sabbagha and Dalton Dowdy who weighed a 20.39 lb bag. Good enough to collect $1700.

4th Place went to previous Lake Hartwell National Champions Jason Burroughs and Darren Ashley who had 18.5 lbs They took home $1100
