Gary Singleton and Edward Gettys win RAM 100% Plus Team Tour Championship 

Athens, AL -- The team of Gary Singleton and Edward Gettys won the RAM 100% Plus Team Championship held September 23rd – 24th, 2017 on Lake Chickamauga.  Running out of the Dayton Boat Dock in Dayton, TN Singleton and Gettys weighed in a five-fish limit on Day One that was the heaviest bag of the tournament, locking in the scales at 21.37 pounds anchored by a 6.84 pound kicker. They stayed consistent on Day Two bringing in another five-fish limit that weighed 17.47 pounds anchored by another lunker that locked in at 7.26 pounds. Singleton and Gettys finished with a two-day total weight of 38.84 pounds  giving them the first-place victory and the title of RAM 100% Plus Team Tour Champions.

For their victory Gary and Edward took home a pair of new 2017 Triton Boats 17TX with a Mercury 60hp four stroke outboard, Garmin Echomap units, Motorguide trolling motor, and a host of T-H Marine products valued at over $40,000.  They also took home an additional $1400 for first place in the High Stakes Option Pot, and $630 for landing the Big Bass of the tournament.

Gary Singleton added to his payday by being a Triton boat owner, he took home an additional $7000 in Triton Gold monies and another $1000 from Mercury Marine for running a new Mercury Outboard.  Total first place winnings in cash and prizes was over $50,000.00.

“We had a tough practice the first two days, not catching anything. On Friday, we caught six keepers. We caught twelve keepers during the tournament and all but one came on an Evergreen top water bait. I have to give my partner Ed the credit because he has been here before.  I wanted to thank Blue and Gray Marine for getting my Triton Boat ready and Competitive Edge Custom Lures out of Dickson, TN for the special paint jobs they do on our lures”, said Singleton.

Taking second place was the team of Eric Phillips and Tim Cornelius. On Day One they brought in a five-fish limit that locked in the scales at 15.47 pounds. On Day Two, they managed to land another five-fish limit that weighed 17.13 pounds, sealing their second-place finish. Their final weight total of 32.60 pounds earned them $2000.

“I had never been here before, but my partner has. We caught a lot of fish during the two days of the tournament. All of our fish came on a shaky head using a weenie worm”, said Phillips.

Third place was claimed by the team of David Gnewikow and Kevin Woodside. They finished Day One strong with a five-fish limit that went for 16.59 pounds. Day Two they brought back another five-fish limit that locked in at 10.90 pounds.  It was still enough to lock in their third place finish with a two-day total weight of 27.90 pounds. They took home $1500 for third place and an additional $750 from the High Stakes Option Pot.

“We have never spent any time here and we were on a tough bite during practice, but when we caught one, it was a good fish. We caught ten keepers in two days using a Strike King Sexy Dawg and a Strike King Rage Hawg”, said Gnewikow.

The team of Jamie Shay and Jeff Knight and the team of Hensley Powell and Robbie Dickerson tied for fourth place with a two-day total weight 26.87 pounds.
