This event drew top anglers from the region, all vying for cash rewards and valuable points towards divisional and national standings.

Despite challenging conditions marked by high winds and muddy, low water levels, Blackwell managed to catch four fish, culminating in a total weight of 10.00 pounds. His catch included a notable 4.14-pound bass, contributing to his victory and earning him a cash prize of $288.

Dwayne Smith from Americus, Georgia, claimed the second position with a total catch weight of 9.40 pounds. In third place was Johnny Smith from Albany, Georgia, who caught a 2.45-pound fish, winning the Big Fish honors and a $70 cash prize.
