Brenda and David Presley Win On Ft. Loudon/Tellico
By Kathy Smith
March 8, 2014 – Ft. Loudon/Tellico
As the boats blasted off into the brilliant sunrise, you could feel a hint a spring in the air. This was Divisions 9’s first tournament of 2014 and attendance was high. Thirteen teams fished for the win but Brenda and David Presley pulled it off. Weighing in with 9.44 pounds they went home with $585 in their pockets and a nice plaque. The secret to their success was a combination of shad, raps and spinner baits.
Taking second place was Brenna Armfield and Carl Guffey with a total weight of 8.88 pounds. These two were smiling on their way home with a plaque from our sponsor, This ‘N That and $390.
Ladies’ Big Fish: Two ladies, Bonnie Johnson with 3.85 Lbs. and Misty Lewis with 3.82 Lbs. Both brought in beautiful fish. So close were their weights, but there can be only one winner.
Bonnie Johnson led by 0.03 Lbs. Congratulations Bonnie!
Men’s Big Fish: With less pressure than the ladies had, Matt Sharp brings in his big fish weighing 4.14 pounds. Congratulations Matt!
