Team Edgil Wins Alabama North Couples Tour Event on Neely Henry
Dennis and Marie Edgil bested an 11 team field on November 15th, 2015 at Lake Neely Henry in Gadsden Alabama with their five bass limit weighing 15.73 pounds.
All teams encountered challenging conditions at first light with temperatures near freezing. Alabama Power was running water through the dam causing the dirty water to flow down the lake most of the day. Crankbaits, plastics, and jigs were all credited by the competitors. The weights were very close for the rest of the pack, but Gary and Tina Woods landed 11.85 pounds for second place and 11.74 pounds was boated by Steve Hales and Stephanie Ensley for the final paycheck at third.
Ladies Big Fish: 4.05 pounds caught by Marie Edgil
Next Divisional Tournament: This division’s next tournament will be December 5th, 2015 on Lake Weiss Cedar Bluff, AL.
