Here are the full results of the KBFTN Season Opener. We had 40 Anglers, $1990 in cash, and around $300 in product and gift cards. I want to thank everyone for coming out and all their support. KBFTN would not be what it is today without everyone who has fished with us throughout the last three years.
We have sponsors who have recognized what we have been doing and all the support and they are Hook1, Bad Boy Jigs, and Power Team Lures. Robert Weiker the owner of E&B Custom Tackle fished with us and done very well, he also donated 12 custom painted crankbaits. Chad Hoover, Mark Southern Fishing, Katie Bob Bernotsky.
The season opener is a two day best 5 fish, and the leaderboard changes were nothing short of adrenaline pumping. Congratulations to Craig Dye on securing 1st place, Joey Kelly came from behind and made the needed surge on day 2 to take 2nd place, Michael Ernst found the fish he needed on day two for a good 3rd place finish, Shae Mccord tried something different on day 2 and it definately paid off for 4th place, Josh Stewart participated in his first KBFTN event and had a great day two jumping 10 spots to take 5th place. Big Bass was Craig Dye with an 18.5″ largemouth on day 1 that held on for day two and earned him $190 for one fish.
