Darren Taylor and Amy Newsome Take the win on West Point
The North GA Bass Pro Shops Couples Division 5 held their second tournament on a chilly but beautiful December 7. Five couples took time from this busy time of year to join us on West Point Lake, where the spotted bass far outnumbered largemouth at the scale. First Place Winners with a total weight of 8.13-lbs went to Darren Taylor and Amy Newsome.
Men’s Big Bass, and Big Bass of the tournament, went to Benny Howell for a fish that locked in the scales at 2.89-lbs. Ladies Big Bass went to Jerri Beam for her fish that went to the scales for 2.32-lbs.
All fish were released alive, and we had a great time! Even though it is two months away we are already getting excited about our next tournaments at Lakepoint Marina on Lake Eufaula on February 15 & 16, 2020. Come join us for one or both days!
