Burroughs and Tellock Lead Couple Championship After Day-One

Sixty-five teams blasted off Thursday morning from Green Pond Landing in Anderson, SC.  The couples were greeted with pleasant temperatures in the morning with a slight breeze, by the weigh in the temperature had raised to hot 93 degrees.  62 teams brought fish to the scales, but the team of Jason Burroughs and Samantha Tellock brought in the biggest bag, locking in the scales at 12.91-lbs. Jason anchored their bag with men’s big bass of the day with a 3.71-lb kicker. They will go into day two with the lead, but the second place team is hot on their heels.

Second place after day-one is Brady and Briana Kimbrell with a five-fish limit that tipped the scales at 12.38-lbs.  Briana anchored their bag with women’s big bass for the day with a nice 4.43-lb kicker.  Sitting only .53-lbs out of first, they will go into day-two well within striking distance of first.

Third place was claimed by Bruce and Diane “Dede” Askew with a five-fish limit locking in the scales at 10.60-lbs.

Going into day two, the title of Couples Champion is still anybody’s to take. The final weigh-in will be today at 2:00 pm at Green Pond Landing and Event Center; 470 Green Pond Rd.
