Dale and Victoria Goff Collect 2nd Win of 2019 Season
Our 2nd tournament of the South Carolina series followed up the AFT Championship where the last day was canceled due to weather conditions. We'd like to thank the 13 teams that braved the windy conditions to compete on Saturday. We shared the landing with the Jacob Jordan Memorial Tournament. Jacob Jordan was a high school angler that graduated in 2018 and was holding down two jobs. He was killed in an automobile accident earlier in the month. This young man was well-known and liked in the local fishing community. The Jacob Jordan Memorial Tournament will be an annual event on Lake Hartwell. It was decided that the blast off and weigh-ins would co-inside so that our couples could participate in the benefit and fundraisers as well as the couples tournament. A few teams competed in both and several more participated in the fundraisers after weigh in.
We'd like to pass on the appreciation of the Jacob Jordan benefit organizers. Timmy Jones and his son, Jacob’s high school fishing partner, came over as we were leaving to thank everyone for their participation and donations.
We had 13 teams compete in the second series tournament and paid out 3 places.
Congratulations to our couples that earned a paycheck:
Dale and Victoria Goff took another 1st place finish with 5-fish weighing 9.11-lbs.
2nd Place and Ladies Big Fish went to Bryan and Sharon Waddell with 5-fish for a total weight of 8.59-lbs and big fish of 2.96-lbs.
3rd Place and Men's Big Fish went to Craig Sahms with 5-fish weighing 8.20-lbs and big fish of 3.30-lbs.

T-H MARINE INTRODUCES REDESIGNED HYDRAULIC STEERING LOCK
Huntsville, AL – August 6, 2019 – T-H Marine Supplies, Inc., of Huntsville, Alabama, announces the complete redesign and reintroduction of their STEER STOP® Outboard Hydraulic Steering Lock. Using two stabilizer clips that attach to an outboard motor's hydraulic steering rams, STEER STOP® works by keeping the engine centered and preventing damage that occurs when a motor swings left and right during transport. The new and improved STEER STOP® is now available online and will also be available through a variety of retailers.
“The original STEER STOP® paved the way, but it was time to make improvements so it could be even more reliable, more durable, and easier to use,” said T-H Marine President and CEO, Jeff Huntley. “Now boaters will notice several ways the new STEER STOP® stands apart from imitation and performs better than any other hydraulic steering lock on the market.”
