McCaig brought in a 19.05 pound limit of Lake Mitchell bass to win $5000 in his first American Bass Anglers event of the year.

Then, I went a long time without a bite. I caught another good one about 11:00. At 2:45, I had four fish and I stopped at another spot where I caught a four pounder on a crankbait. After that, I went around the corner, flipped a little grass mat, caught another four pound, and came to the weigh in. My best fish came after 3:00, so I’m glad I was in the last flight,” said McCaig.

That’s what killed me,” said Minor.

Third place in the Alabama South event went to Travis Northey of Troy, AL with 17.28 pounds winning $853. “I was down south and caught every one of them on a jig. I did like the rest of these boys and caught a limit of spots before looking for largemouth. I just never caught a largemouth,” said Northey.
