MAKBF Event 1 Recap

The 2014 MAKBF got off to a running start this past Saturday April 26th. Forty four anglers showed up to Slavin's Boat Ramp to compete for first place on Mattawoman Creek and points towards Angler of the Year.

This year the Angler of the Year will be crowned with custom dog tags which we thought would be fitting for our series as we donate proceeds to Heroes on the Water.

This event was sponsored by Kanan Lures and YakAttack. The winner of the biggest bass took home this awesome prize package from Kanan Lures.

Fishing was somewhat difficult but 14 of the 44 participants were able to limit out with 3 fish, although two didn't check in there catches in time.
Dave "Turtle135" Thompson - 19.5" Big Bass
Dave "Turtle135" Thompson - 52.75" Total

Unfortunately we had a small mix up with 2nd place that was missed while taking photos, but we were able to square everything away eventually. So we would like to congratulate Mike "Chexone" Soudee for the quality finish with 50" total.
Dave "Donkeyfish" Adlington - 48.75" Total

Angler of the Year Standings:
Dave Thompson (Turtle135)- 12
Mike Soudee (Chexone)- 9
