Jamey Black of Sheridan, AR topped the field with five fish for a total weight of 14.27 lbs.  Jamey threw a Black’s custom buzz bait and a variety of other baits to catch his fish.

Cletus Gartman of Redfield, AR only needed to sack up three fish to take second place with a total weight of 10.69 lbs.  He also caught the days Big Bass at 5.56 lbs.  Cletus caught his fish on a variety of soft plastic baits.

Rounding out the top three was Curtis Massey of England, AR who sacked up four fish for a total weight of 8.48 lbs. throwing a variety of soft plastic baits to fill his livewell.
