Well the season has come and gone. We ended the year on Barren River Lake but before we went fishing the fine folks at Immanuel Baptist Church hosted our Friday night meeting. They supplied a great meal, with BBQ pork shoulder, and some delicious baked beans, slaw and potato salad. After the meal former FOM director Jeremy Atwood spoke to us about coming to the scales with a full sack, but in heaven not the tournament.
Saturday morning was calling for strong storms and heavy rain but it held off for most of the day as all 27 teams blasted off in hopes of catching the winning limit of bass. The team of Mark Morgan and Chris Burton used 3/4oz Cumberland Pro Jigs and spoons in 17-20ft of water, fishing brush piles on points near the river channel to catch a limit weighing 22.24lbs for first place. In second place with 16.76lbs was our points leaders TJ Wilcher and Michael Carrier. They caught their fish on Zoom Brush Hogs and shakey heads arould points. TJ and Michael also had big fish of the tournament with a largemouth weighting 6.08lbs. Third place went to Ben and Lacy Kabel with a total weight of 14.12lbs. TJ Wilcher and Michael Carrier are also the 2019 South Central Ky Points Champions, congratulations guys, you have had a great year. It has been a fun season with alot of good fellowship, good food, laughs, and some nice fish was caught along the way. Look on the full schedule on the FOM website for updates on our district championship on Dale Hollow in September. If you have fished at least 3 tournaments in this division you are eligable to fish our district championship, if you have fished five tournaments total you are eligable to fish any district championship. I will have the 2020 seasons schedule done around the first of October.
