Robert Hargrove Comes Out On Top at Bob Sandlin
The “Living Legend” does it again, folks! Robert bested a field of 37 anglers and brought 4 fish to the scales that weighed in at 17.68 lbs. The impressive sack also included the day’s Big Bass of 5.90 lbs. Robert’s fish came on a chicken rig with a Zoom Trick Worm and a spinnerbait in very shallow water. The first place check for $375 and the Big Bass pot of $180 was also sweetened with Robert’s half of the heavy boat pot of $90 for a total payday of $645. Way to go Robert!
Second place at the March 28 tournament went to “Sheriff” Danny Yates with a 5-fish limit for 12.61 lbs and a check for $268. Danny’s fish were caught on a modified Lake Fork 10″ worm in water 5′ deep. Duane Climer nailed down a 3rd place finish using a watermelon red brush hog and a fluke of the same color for a 5-fish limit of 11 lbs even. Duane’s 3rd place finish garnered a check for $160.
The only other angler to bring in a limit at Sandlin was long-time Century member, Bill Kessler. Bill’s sack tipped the scales at 9.49 lbs which was good enough for 4th place and $118.
New Century member Randy Short and Paul Zukosky captured 5th and 6th place respectively with 4 fish each. Randy’s fish weighed in at 8.96 lbs and Paul’s fish totaled 8.20 lbs. For their hard work they took home checks for $85 and $65 for their 5th and 6th place finishes.
Another new Century member, Dusty Richards, was the winner of the “first place out of the money” tackle pack. Mike Stewart won the 2nd half of the heavy boat pot of $180 as Robert Hargrove’s partner for the day. Mike had 3 fish for 4.52 lbs.
There were 67 fish caught for a total of 143.25 lbs and a 2.14 lb per fish average.
