Several FLW fishing tournaments took place across America the weekend of Friday, October 5, 2012. Among them were two FLW Walmart Bass Fishing League tournaments and a FLW EverStart Series tournament. Here's a quick look at some of the results:
Lake Seminole Results
Georgia's Lake Seminole was the site of a FLW Walmart Bass Fishing League's regional tournament Thursday, October 4, 2012 through Saturday, October 6, 2012. More than 100 hopeful bass anglers participated in what turned out to be a real nail-biter. In the end, it was Alabama angler Wayne Christopher that reigned supreme. Over the course of the three day tournament, Christopher managed to catch 43 pounds, 6 ounces worth of bass. As a result, he narrowly managed to walk away with a beautiful Chevy 1500 Silverado and a sweet Ranger Boat.
Floridian Robert Crosnoe finished the tournament in 2nd place after catching 43 pounds, 2 ounces worth of bass. I suspect that it must have been heart-breaking for him knowing how close he came to winning the top prize. Crosnoe received over $1,000 in prize money for his efforts. The tournament's remaining top 5 boater spots were claimed by Floridians Terry Stevens, Brandon Medlock and Santos Solis.
Cherokee Lake Results
Tennessee's Cherokee Lake also saw a good deal of bass fishing action Thursday, October 4, 2012 through Saturday, October 6, 2012. The lake hosted a FLW Walmart Bass Fishing League's regional tournament of its own. The winner was Illinois angler Michael Black. Black caught 37 pounds, 10 ounces worth of bass. Thus, he also received a Ranger Boat and a Chevy 1500 Silverado. The tournament's remaining top 5 boater spots were earned by anglers Chris Wilkinson (IN), Michael Allen (TN), Todd Walters (NC) and David Williams (NC).
Lake of the Pines Results
The EverStart Series descended on Lake of the Pines in Texas Thursday, October 4, 2012 through Saturday, October 6, 2012. More than 80 anglers wet their lines in hopes of securing the tournament's top prize. The big winner turned out to be Texas angler Ritter Ferguson. Ferguson finessed more than 46 pounds worth of bass into his boat. Part of his success was attributed to a Zoom Trick Worm. He received well over $24,000 in prize money for his efforts. The tournament's remaining top 5 pro spots were claimed by Texas anglers John Tanner, Harold Allen, Kris Wilson and Brian Clark.
