Athens, AL -  Day One of the American Bass Anglers, 2017 American Couples Series National Championships is in the books.  Running out of Lakepoint Resort State Park in Eufaula, AL  the team of Sean and Kathy Capes brought back a five-fish limit that locked in the scales at 14.33 pounds. The team anchored their catch with a 5.88-pound kicker.  They will start Day Two of the tournament as the team to beat, leading the field by just under three pounds.

"Most of our fish came on crankbaits today. We feel good about bringing in another limit tomorrow", said Sean Capes.

The Team of Allen and Carolyn Raines finished Day One in Second Place with a five-fish limit that locked in at 11.91 pounds, putting them in striking distance of the leaders.  Allen had the biggest bass weighed in for the men today at 5.98 pounds.
