What a great tournament trail this has shaped up to be with a last place finish in the first tournament of the year on Dale Hollow. To the Douglas tournament, placing 5th with a 11.06 lb. weigh in our season has been a roller coaster for sure. Both Watts Bar and Douglas Lakes decided to show off with tournament history records in bag weights this tournament season.
