Fifteen teams participated in the CBT's final event of the 2020 regular season this past Saturday. With the South Louisiana heat in full force, most were anticipating a long day ahead of the blastoff. At the 3:30 weigh-in, it was somewhat confirmed with many anglers expressing just how hot it gets out on the water. As has been the case all year though, a few teams really rose to the challenge and brought in some heavy stringers.
In third place was Fred King and Roy Laborde with 14.64 lbs. for which they received $450. Coming in second place was the team of Danny and Greg Morales with 16.44 lbs. for which they took home $675. Besting the field in total weight, as well as taking home the Big Bass award was the Father/Son team of Brad and Rodney Sampson. They were able to put together an impressive 16.48 lb stringer, as well as a 4.98 lb. Big Bass! For their efforts, they took home a combined $1275!
We want to thank everyone who has shown support and fished with the CBT this year as it has been a drawn-out season with all that we have had to overcome. Between Covid and Cristobal, we were forced to move three events in a row creating much uncertainty on if the trail could keep going. We are glad to have finally completed our 5 event season and are looking forward to the Championship in September. We will soon post the list of all who have qualified, as well as the updated points race results.
