He anchored his first days catch with the big bass of the tournament, that went for 3.52 lbs.  On day 2 the bite proved to be a little more challenging as he only brought back 2-fish to the scales for a weight of 3.06 lbs.  Paul had a two-day total weight of 13.48 lbs. giving him to Division 65 Championship victory.

Gene Childers of Vinita, OK took third place with a 2-day total weight of 9.66 lbs.

All anglers stated that conditions were tough all over the lake, but rumor has it that it was a square bill crank bait or a shaky head worm to catch the finicky fall bass on Grand Lake. 

B.A.S.S. pro angler Ken Iyobe also dropped by to offer his congrats to Tracy Mitchell and the other anglers.
