Mike Sims Takes the win on Kerr Reservoir

It was a good day of fishing today on Kerr Lake, despite the rains. Most people came off the water a bit early due to a thunderstorm with lightning. That said, 22 anglers donned rain suits and competed in this AFT division 13 event at Rudds Creek. 15 of the 22 brought in 5 fish limits. Most of the fish came on plastics today, with reports from the fishermen that the fish hit just about any bait that hit the water. Unfortunately, most of the fish were small. Fishing predominately plastics - worms and brush hogs - Mike Sims of Suffolk Virginia captured the win with five nice fish that tipped the scales at 13.68 pounds. This was Mike's last event with the Virginia division as he is about to make the move to Mississippi. For the win, Mike claimed 1st place monies of $559.

In second place was Dominic Barretta with another limit that went 13.28 pounds. Rick Cornett finished in third with 12.42 pounds, anchored with the big fish of the tournament at 6.36 pound.
