2014 CATCH Classic
The 2014 CATCH Classic was held on October 4th at Grasshopper Creek. Forty-one boats met the requirements to fish the year-end classic event. There is no entry fee to the classic, but a big fish pot was collected. The $2,500 total purse is accumulated throughout the year from sponsorship monies that come in from various sources.
With a frontal system passing through and TVA dropping the water, most found it very tough to catch the three fish limit and the big ones were sure hard to "lure" out of hiding. The team of Mike Crittenden and Gene Roberts took the honors and the $1,000 first place prize with a limit weighing 11.60lbs. Right on their heels was the duo of Jim Kimsey and Brian Gladson with a limit weighing 11.54lbs. Big Largemouth of the day went to David Neely and Tim Ledford with a 6.55lbs lunker. Big Smallmouth went to Jeremy Fox and Shane McKee with a 3.41lber.
Congrats to the following:
Team of the Year - John Harden and Jeff Holbert
2nd Place - Corey Painter and Joe Burns
3rd Place - Scott Jones and Scott Ledford
Big Largemouth of the Year - Jeremy Fox and Shane McKee 12.27lbs
