10th Annual TOT a HUGE Success!

Posted: 6/1/2009

Giant Kentucky Lake put on its best face Friday and Saturday as over 3 tons of bass were weighed in at the Triton Owners Tournament. Eric Law of nearby Primm Spring, TN led the way with a 26.33 pound stringer Friday followed by 26 more strings over 20 pounds Friday. At the end of business Friday 16.16 pounds was in the standings for the 65th place check.

Saturday with a weather change and TVA cutting back generation the bite slowed a little. But at the end of the day Mt Juliet, Tennessee resident David Gnewikow and Jason Sain of nearby Hurricane Mills walked away with the Championship trophy and $7,000.00. Scott Mansfield finished 2nd and first day leader Eric Law ended up in 3rd place. Complete standings are posted below. The 65th place check was given for a total of 29.65 pounds for the two days.

After two wonderful days of fishing and prize checks awarded, there was one item of business left for the 10th annual TOT. The draw boat needed to be awarded! The lucky winner of the beautiful, fully-rigged 20X3 Pro with a Mercury 250 Pro XS engine was Jim Schleifer of Onalaska, Wisconsin.
Triton Boats and all of the anglers would like to thank our welcoming host, Henry County Chamber of Commerce, for the fantastic weather that took place during the event.
