Coy Frazier, Once Again, Conquers Cypress Springs

After catching a few keepers early on a spinnerbait Coy pulled out his trusted long line and Zoom centipedes and went to work. With his Bullet running him from deep brush pile to deep brush pile, Coy culled to his 5-fish limit and finished the day with 15.16 pounds.  He also won the combo weight honors with his partner “Lips” Dowis who added two fish at 5.45 pounds and gave the duo a combined weight of 20.61 pounds.  

With Cedar Creek and Sam Rayburn coming up, look for Coy to leap towards the top of the standings along with Robert Hargrove who placed 2nd in this tournament with 5 fish weighing 12.60 pounds.  

Bill Kessler, the hottest angler in Century right now, grabbed 3rd place with a limit weighing 11.66 pounds. That makes a 3rd and a pair of back-to-back 1st place finishes in our last three tournaments for Bill.

Bobby Cole also brought a limit to the scales and took home 4th place with 11.22 pounds. David Porter was next in 5th place with 4 fish weighing 8.97 pounds. In all, 28 anglers weighed in 69 fish for average weight of 2.34 pounds per fish. 

Mark Calhoun is beginning to make a habit of winning Big Bass honors and he did it again at Cypress Springs with a 4.54 pound fish to narrowly edge Bill Kessler’s 4.34 pounds fish.

The day before our tournament, Randy Kvapil won the Federation tournament on Bob Sandlin and that keeps him on top of our Federation standings. Robert Hargrove and Craig Dowis placed 4th and 5th respectively in that tournament.  

Our Top Six standings will feature drops after our next tournament. Wally Hughey is currently in 1st place after our first 5 events, followed by Craig Dowis, Robert Hargrove, Bill Kessler, Randy Kvapil and yours truly. After we start adding drops the competition will get even tighter with at least 20 members having a genuine shot at the Top Six!
