2017 FISH-OFF RESULTS

   The 2017 classic championship was composed of a 69 boat field of the best anglers from the area that had qualified from either the Thursday Evening circuit or the weekend Series.   Fishing was tough to say the least with only 7 limits of fish caught in the two day event.  The top 20 weights from day one advanced to day two with a chance at part of the $12,000 in prize money.  Only one team was able to catch a limit of fish both days.  

A special thank you to all of our sponsors for being so generous and supporting the fisherman during the season and in the past.   Please consider these fine businesses when you need anything.
