Go Back


Well, we had our very first one day event. I really want to thank all the anglers that were patient with us during this trial run of a one day event. Thanks to Leesville Lake Marina for hosting us and providing good service to feed us after the tournament weigh in.

Our day started early and all the teams were in the water by 6 am and blasted off by 6:15 am, we fished until 1pm. Our weigh in was fun and the oung folks had a blast bringing the fish to the scales. Ultimatley at the end of the day Don Wheeler, Logan Gunter and Kaleb Wheeler brought in the winning weight for the day of 10.47lbs, 2nd place went to the team of Wayne King and is son Matthew King with a weight of 9.13lbs, Matthew has fished the FOM for 9 years and in those 9 years only missed 1 legacy tournament, I want to commend him on such an amazing record, and thank his parents for supporting him. 3rd place went to the team of David and Conner Martin with a weight of 8.61lbs, his dad said if Conner hadnt caught al the fish they wouldnt have had a fish to bring to the scales, congrats to Conner for steping up and showing up for his team. Just our of the money was Kameron Hall and Tanner Carter with a weight of 7.78lbs and they took home the two Rio Rods.

Big fish honors went to the team of Randy Hicks and Autumn Hicks with a 3.60lb large mouth.


God bless you all and I hope you all the best at the national championship this year, Lake Keeowee is an awesome lake and will fish very similar to Smith Mountain Lake.
