2022  Season Review

With 15 teams starting out on Pocomoonshine Lake, then onto the second day to Hadley Lake. The top ten competed for the title and the $5300 purse that was given out throughout the three events.

Congratulations to this year's winner Gibson X 2. They put a monster bag together on the final day to capture this year's title. The bag was anchored with a Lunker 5.70 lbs largemouth with four more fish over four pounds to give them a 22.54 lbs bag and a first-place check of $2000.
