The CKA Event #6 at Randleman Reservoir presented by Triad Signs turned out be a tough one with only 10 limits being submitted out of 57 anglers! 16 anglers found themselves with a skunk. Sadly, a few fell prey to rules mishaps that caused them to lose some valuable scores! Read the rules!
However, Marcus Smith was onto a pattern he had found a week prior that turned out to be the winning strategy. After deciding to share the water with the current Angler of the Year leader, Mr. Henry Veggian, Marcus proved that his confidence in the area was enough to hook into 83.85” which was enough to push him to the top of the field. Marcus also landed the big bass of the day at 21.5”, adding $500 to the $969 Champion prize money! Marcus also secures himself a spot in the Tournament of Champions!
In 2nd place was Shelly Effird, another top AOY contender that needed a solid finish to keep within striking distance. Shelly put up 82.25” and won $581!
3rd was Rick Rowland who has been on a tear as of late. Rick won $388 and earned some valuable points!
Henry Veggian took 4th place with 78.5” and a check for $100 helping keep his AOY aspirations going strong and keeping him in the lead!
5th place went to Denny Romero from On the Water Innovations with 75.5” earning Denny $100! Denny can catch bass after all!
The rest of the top ten included some anglers that have dusted off the yaks this year and joined us for some fun competition! On behalf of all the Directors, welcome back to the madness!
6th – Tony Xiong 74.75″
7th – Bryan Tsiolkas 71.75″
8th – Tommy Xiong 67.75″
10th – Rick Morris 62.50″
Triad Signs donated a Kayak Wrap that raised $200 for the Tournament of Champions and was won by Shawn Worrell! We can’t wait to see what they come up with to make Shawn’s kayak stand out from the crowd!
The anglers also raised $105 for Heroes on the Water! Thank you for all who support our veterans and active military!
Anyone looking to give their sponsors some extra visibility or even to protect and make your kayak stand out should contact Brandon at Triad Signs! If you own a business, Triad Signs is the place to go to get your fleet wrapped or lettered as well as for any signage you may need!
Next up: August 21st anglers have a choice of James or Mayo to battle for the East vs. West Title as well as for the 2 Tournament of Champions spots up for grabs! The highest finish at each lake will earn a spot! If we can get over 30 anglers at each lake, we can break this into 2 separate events so get the word out and invite all the anglers you can!
