Correction: John Brasher caught the Big Bass of week 6 (pictured above). It was a 5.63 lb largemouth, not a spotted bass as previously reported.



Week 5, May 3

Jeff England was the series champion last season and he teamed with Bill Sapp, pictured above, to win for the first time in 2013.  On a rainy night 11 teams showed and it took a 5 fish limit of 9.45 lbs to win for England and Sapp.  Mike Wolfe and Joe Marino finished in the money for the first time capturing the Big Bass prize and second place for a total of $110 for the night.  Always near the top, the team of Michael Forrester and Chris Leathers captured third place with a five fish limit of 7.54 lbs.
