2017 Championship Results



Fin & Feather Resort on Toledo Bend hosted the 2017 Championship. The weather was beautiful, but hot with little to no wind and humidity of at least 98%!   Fishing was tough for everyone, including all of the locals!

The week’s events included The Specialty Bait Tournament  which was held on Wednesday from 8-12 and all 29 couples had to fish with a worm!   Klinton & Chris Krhovjak won it with a 3 fish limit that went 6.40#. They won $290 for their efforts. The Skeeter Demo Team gave rides to several couples on Thurs and Friday.  Wayne & Marilyn Lilijedahl won the drawing for the FREE entry to next season’s tournaments!  It pays to ride in a Skeeter!!. The banquet was attended by 260 anglers and guests who had a wonderful dinner  of Chicken Fried Chicken and Chicken Fried Steak!   Delicious!  The evening was concluded with the Calcutta where over $22,000 was raised.!! Awesome job everyone.

A BIG  Congratulations to Scott and Kathy McCarty for topping a field of 118 teams to win the 2017 Championship with a 2 day limit that weighed 33.31#! They will also receive a payout from the Skeeter Real Money Incentive Program!  Awesome job on a lake that fished tough all week!

Second Place went to David & Tina Bozarth, who had a nice limit that weighed 29.19# and Third Place went to Kevin & Lisa Dritschler who’s limit went 28.62#!  Less than a pound between the two!
