Toledo Bend was also the site of one of B.A.S.S.'s most recent ties. In March 2009 at the Bassmaster Central Open, Elite Series pro James Niggemeyer and Jerrel Pringle ended the three days of regulation in a dead heat at 37-14.
The two were forced to compete in a 3 1/2-hour fish-off to determine the winner. Niggemeyer prevailed with 14-1 in extra innings compared with Pringle's 7-8.
