Perfect weather conditions greeted the 53 teams at Saguaro on Feb. 8, 2014, and the points race for the Bassmaster Team Championship berth is heating up.
In 1st place were Lon Armel and Todd Weber with an impressive 19.47 lbs, which did not include one of the big bass of the tournament. They moved up the points standing from 18th place to 9th and earned $3,115.
Chad Harvey and Forest Webb brought 17.95 lbs to the scales including the 7.29 big bass of the tournament and earned $2,915. They moved up the points standing from 2nd to 1st place and are currently in the lead for the Bassmaster Team Championship.
And then, Chad finally won the $500 Bill Luke Bonus Cash. Guys, you need to remember, Bill Luke Chrysler Jeep Dodge & Ram provides $500 to be given away in a random draw, but you must be present to win. We went thru at least 4 numbers before finally pulling Chad’s.
Father and son team Mike and Cody Nugent had the 3rd heaviest bag of the tournament, 15.12 lbs., anchored by the 2nd big bass of the tournament of 6.29 lbs, caught with a DJ Custom Jig. They earned $700 for 3rd place, next time I’m sure they will get in the option. They moved up 5 places in the points standings from 16th to 11th. See FULL RESULTS here.
Joe Hawks and Joe Zagar were the recipients of an assortment of DJ Custom Jigs.
