Tournament Winner

Derek Phillips-2/Steve Cubbage-1st/Ron Giebel-3

Six anglers started the event, but only three could move on! Special thanks to Jim Choate, Branden Boyd, and Ty Hughes for an excellent fight to the finish! This day, 09/26/2015, will go down as the most exciting MLF format we have ever had to date!


You have to try it to know what its like!

The 2nd part of the Elimination Round was full of "emotional" ups and downs for these 6 trying to make the cut. Unless you have tried an actual event in this format, you will never know the real "excitement of victory" nor the real "agony of defeat" when it comes to bass fishing. There is nothing like this format that can compare when it comes to bringing real emotion to the surface in a bass event! This day, the Top 2 pretty much had it all locked in for most of the day through two periods....until 2nd place was bumped down out of nowhere, for the first time all day, in the final minutes of the 3rd period. Then the 3rd qualifying slot changed hands 3 times, with 3 different anglers, in the final hour of the event! Talk about being up and then down.....This event had it all.
