Pam and Ken Draskovic Win on Guntersville
Pam and Ken Draskovic from Scottsboro, Alabama topped the field in the Alabama North Couples Tour season opening event held on Lake Guntersville this past Saturday, September 17th. Their total weight of 12.76 pounds locked in the victory. Pam won ladies Big Bass with a 2.21 pound fish while Ken received men’s Big Bass honors with a 3.31 pound largemouth. Lake Guntersville has been very tough to fish lately and this tournament was no exception. The Draskovic's were the only team to weigh in a limit. Their success was credited to the use of frogs and topwater lures.
The wind started out light then increased to gusts of 16 mph. The skies were overcast and the water was slightly stained.
This division’s next tournament will be November 5, 2016 at Lake Weiss in Cedar Bluff, Alabama. For more information on this, or any future event in this division, contact Mike Garlen at (256)998-0171.
