American Bass Anglers Division 126 held its Two-Day Championship August 1-2, 2015 on Stockton Lake. You could say it was a tough bite, then look at the results and you’ll know it was a tough bite. Only nine fish were weighed in on Day One, with the lead going to Jay Carter with two fish that weighed 3.84lbs. Michael Henderson of Lamar had Big Bass with a 2.76 pound largemouth.

Second place went to Mike Dill with 7.26 pounds, which included Big Bass for Day Two and Big Bass of the tournament, a largemouth weighing 5.61 pounds.
In addition to winning the tournament, Jay Carter captured Angler of the Year for Division 126 which qualifies him to compete in the AOY Fish-Off to be held on Hartwell Lake in South Carolina October 22-24, 2015. He will fish against 40-60 AOY's for a fully rigged Triton Bass Boat.
