A very beautiful day for the season finale of the Joe Bass Team Trail Table Rock Division sponsored by Chompers. 48 teams set out to conquer the lake with all the boat traffic of the summer weekend. Weather conditions were good with highs in the low 90’s and light wind. The fish appeared to be heavy into their summer pattern with many teams using spoons and big worms deep to catch their limits.
The father/son team of Tom and Dillon Statler, Kimberling City, MO, sponsored by Championship Marine, Chompers, and Nitro, used spoons and 4″ Chompers brown and purple laminate drop shot worms to bring their 5 fish limit that weighed 15.73lbs. Tom stated their fish came later in the morning up until 230pm when he caught the Ozark Chevrolet BIG BASS of the Day that weighed 6.63lbs. This earned the team 1st Place.
Last years Division Champions, Kavan Maybee, Alpena, AR, and Josh Wray, Omaha, AR, sponsored by Kavan Maybee Insurance and Bass Cat Boats. had 5 fish that weighed 15.08lbs. This earned the team 2nd Place.
3rd Place went to the team of Dean Powers and Jim Lewis, both of Ozark, MO. The team is sponsored by McCallister Marine, Phoenix Boats, Mercury, JD Lures, Leap of Faith 2017LLC and Megabass. They weighed a sack in at 13.91lbs. This team however used a crankbait to bring in their fish. they also had the 2nd big bass of the day thanks to their bait.
The Joe Bass Team Trail Top Skeeter of the Day went to Ed Young fishing out of his 2018 FX21.
Tim Williams Lie Detection Services performed tests on Dean Powers, Cody Millican, Tom Statler, and Matt Ells all of which where found to be NO DECEPTION.
