John & Donna Branstetter Take the Win on Lake Greenwood
We had another chilly start for the South Carolina’s Lake Greenwood tournament on March 7, 2020. But that didn’t hold back the 19 couples or the bass from participating. Even with the muddy water and chilly conditions our couples brought 63 bass to the scales weighing a total of 134.14 lbs. Thanks go out to our couples for their great fish care providing for another 100% release rate. John & Donna Branstetter took the win with a 5 fish limit weighing in at 14.86 lbs. Donna also took Ladies Big Bass with a 3.96 lb. largemouth.
Harry & Kimberly Johnson came in 2nd with 5 fish weighing 13.32 lbs. Harry’s catch of his 6.28 lb. largemouth bass anchored their bag and gave Harry the win for Men’s Big Bass.
TJ & Hannah Souther earned 3rd place with their 5 fish weighing 12.59 lbs.
Chris Seigler & Wanda Reuss finished in 4th place with 5 fish weighing 10.54 lbs.
The Berkeley Outdoors sponsored $50 Smallest Limit went to Bryan & Sharon Waddell weighing 8.70 lbs.
