Taking the safety, and best interest of the angler’s competing at last weekends Trader Bill Team Trail on Lake DeGray, the event originally scheduled for Saturday was postponed to Sunday.
Weather typically plays a major role in all tournaments this time of year. Some are postponed, or delayed to wind, and in some cases, even in March, snow and ice can be a tricky culprit to work around.
That’s the case with this event. Most of Arkansas witnessed snow with freezing temps late in the week causing the potential for dangerous conditions at the boat ramp. Regardless of which side you take, safety is always the right decision.
Eric and Dustin Blevins topped the 126 boat field with 24.70#’s which was 8 pounds heavier than second place team, Kevin Brown and Tom Brown with 16.81. Matt Baker and Paul Baker rounded up third place with 16.61.
The Blevins stated that their pattern was throwing a custom painted 3/4oz & 1/2oz Booyah One Knocker around grass. Originally from Bulls Shoals Lake area, the Blevins has found success on Lake DeGray, and “likes what they have found.”
