In a pool of 38 boats, tournament series organizers say the fish won April 18.
“Finally we had a perfect night to be out on the water and the number of boats continue to climb,” said Thursday Night Tournament Trail co-organizer Erwin Gaston of April 18 event. “For the most part, the fish won this night, but as usual we had several guys who figured out the fish and were able to bring in some nice bags of bass.”
Todd Shackleford and David Few weighed a bag of 18.58 pounds for first place. The team said they fished shallow the whole tournament, Gaston said.
Hunter Hicks took second place with his 16.63 pounds. He was tight lipped about his fishing spot, Gaston said.
