Tim Weredyk takes the win on Clarks Hill

On November 11th, 2018  twenty-nine anglers launched from the Dorn Facility Landing near McCormick, SC.  The temps started out around 33 degrees and warmed up into the low 60’s by the 3 pm weigh in time. Water temps were in the mid 60’s due to several cold rains before the tournament. All twenty-nine weighed in at least one fish. Nineteen of those anglers brought back five-fish limits to the scales, but when the scales closed it was Tim Weredyk from Guyton, GA who took the victory with 12.87-lbs. For the win, Tim took home $666 in prize money plus an additional $156 for 1st Place Option Pot for total earnings of $822.

Second amongst the competitors was Jason Turner of Anderson, SC with five-fish that locked in the scales at 12.02-lbs. Jason reported catching his fish shallow on a variety of baits. For his efforts, he took home $414 plus $104 for 2nd Place Option Pot for a total of $518 in prize money.

Third place was claimed by Kim Neal of Easley, SC with five-fish and a total weight of 11.81-lbs.  Kim credited the shakey head rig for his limit. For his efforts, he took home $147.

Fourth place was new ABA member Wesley Sandifer of Chapin, SC with a limit weighing in at 11.29-lbs. Wesley took home $115 for his efforts.

Rounding out the last money spot was Russell Clark of Abbeville, SC with a five-fish limit weighing in at 10.94-lbs. Russell reported losing a 5-lber at the boat that would have made a huge difference for him. Russell collected $79 for his fifth-place finish.

The Biggest Bass of the tournament was caught by Robert Majerick of Eden, NC.  His fish locked in the scales at 4.16-lbs earning him $140 in prize money.
