Evans brought in a 14.34 pound limit to win $5000. “I was fishing up the river, just a little ways. I caught them on a Rico early and a Baby Brush Hog in the afternoon. Those were the only five I caught today,” said Evans.

Third place at the Eufaula event went to Tim Peek of Senoia, GA with 14.21 pounds winning $871. “I went up the river to where I caught a bunch of fish yesterday on a frog. After three hours, I didn’t have a bite. So, I came back down to the lake and just fished hard. I caught them on four different baits. It was just a hard day,” said Peek.

Jay Carter of Warner Robins, GA caught the 6.19 pound Boater Big Bass of the event to win a total of $959 for ninth place and the Big Bass Pot. Carter’s Big Bass came from a brush pile in 12 feet of water on a Carolina rig.
