CANYON LAKE, TX – Big paydays so far in 2018 with another $1000 first prize making this the 9th time in 12 events where first place walked away with almost half an Ultrex. Maybe these things should be called the weekly grand.

1st place went to our current AOY leaders of Phillip Thompson and Thomas Howe. They already have an Ultrex, so maybe they are spending their winnings on fishing lessons, because right now this team is hot. Although it’s their first win of the season, it is the fifth time to cut a check so far in 2018 and they have weighed a limit 10 out of 12 events. Last night they said they only caught 6 fish, yet it would have been their biggest bag of the season if it wasn’t for the dead fish penalty. Thomas said they caught all their fish in 15-22ft of water with some brush on it throwing tx rigs and probably a shakey head.

2nd place went to the dynamic dou of Charles Whited and Trey Groce. Just like the temperature this team is also heating up and have weighed a limit in the last 5 tournaments and have cashed a check in 4 of the last 5. Charles said they have caught most of their fish on a Picasso chatterbait around shallow cover, then moved out and caught some fish on brush on ledges.

Topwater bite slowed down this week with no anglers reporting to have caught any on one. More small mouth were weighed in this week than we have seen the last several weeks and perhaps that has to do with more anglers fishing deeper structure. 3rd place team of Joey Rodriguez and Jason Olivo did well throwing Tx rigs craws and senkos around shallow stick ups but most bigger fish came in deep water
