( 2022 1st Place Lake Purdy Classic Sam & Sammy Hartzog )
Fridays final tournament, the Lake Purdy Classic, was hosted for the top ten points qualifiers from our weekly Friday Night Bass Tournament. These 5 fish tournaments last 22 weeks and can be a grueling 6 hours, or a pure adrenaline rush well into the night. This year it was an extremely close battle for the first place prize. Sam & Sammy Hartzog took the win from Mike Forrester & Scotty Lewis with only a .04lb weight advantage! The Hartzog team had a total weight of 13.450 lbs. and Mike & Scotty had a total weight of 13.410 lbs. Third place was Johnny Hill with 11.535 lbs. Not only did first place payout a whopping $450, but the Hartzog team also won Big Fish with a 5.47 pound Largemouth, earning them another $200 and putting their total for the night at $650! Congratulations on the win guys! Also a big thank you to all our Friday Night fisherman & fisherwomen who come out and compete every Friday night rain or shine. We couldn't do it without you guys and we can't wait for the fierce competition to start up again next season! Follow us on Instagram & Facebook to see the weeks big catches, Fishing reports & more!
