Chris Covert and Chuck Walker won the K.B.B.C. Lake Arthur Open! Considered to be the local favorites on this water, Covert and Walker proved they know how to catch them on Lake Arthur, bringing in the only limit caught for a total weight of 18.76 pounds, which was more than 8 pounds over the second place weight. A powerful cold front moved through just two days prior to the tournament and dropped the water temperatures 10 to 14 degrees which made for a slow bite.
Leo and Ron Cancilla took second place with 10.43 pounds. Ernie and Ron Pate rounded out the top three with 9.10 pounds. Jeff Hall and Troy Adamosky won the Big Fish Lunker prize with 5.76-pounder.
