For the Boater Division victory, Locklear took home a check for $5000 for his win.

“I only had seven bites today, one of which was a jack-fish. I was fishing the south end of the lake within sight of the dam all day. I caught my fish on a crankbait in 5ft-6ft of water,” Locklear said.  

In second for the boaters, Mitchell Jennings of Auburn, AL landed a five-bass tournament limit going 21.80-pounds. 

“I caught my fish between here and the dam. I caught three shallow and two deep. I lost one fish today, but I don’t think it would have helped me,” Jennings said. 

 Andy Norris of Columbus, GA took third for the boaters with five bass going 20.75-pounds. 

“I caught my fish today on a rattletrap. It was a grind today. I only caught five fish,” Norris said.

The big bass award for the boaters went to Carl Hayes of Eatonton, GA for a big bass that weighed 7.35-pounds.

“I caught that fish on a crankbait in about 6ft of water,” Hayes said.

Finishing fourth, Clayton Shoupe of Newton, AL landed a five-bass limit for 16.34-pounds. Michael Smith of Andalusia, AL rounded out the top five boaters with five bass at 16.22-pounds.

Taking second for the co-anglers, Emory Walden of Newnan, GA brought in two bass weighing 10.11 pounds that included a 7.53-pound big bass. 

“I caught my fish today on a jig. The big bass was in about 3ft-4ft of water. I had the third one on but it came off. Just wasn’t my lucky day,” Walden said.  

Jeremiah Hitt of Lutz, FL placed third among the co-anglers with two bass going 7.91-pounds. 

“I have no idea where we were but we were in 20ft-25ft of water. I missed one fish but don’t think it would have helped me win,”  Hitt said.
