Tony Wood won the December Carroll Bassmaster Tournament and set four new club records in the process from this past Saturday’s competition at Lake Wedowee in Alabama.
Using a CC Jig, Wood took first place with five bass, weighing in at 21.09 pounds, which set a new club record for a one-day, five-fish-limit tournament. Wood also had the big bass of the tournament, weighing in at 7.75 pounds, which is also the biggest bass of the year for the club.
Wood’s partner and net man, Craig Crews, also using a CC Jig, came in second with five bass, weighing 11.75 pounds.
Wood and Crews’ combined weight of 32.84 pounds set yet another new club record for a one-day, five-fish-limit tournament.
Third place went to Wesley Bleich with four bass weighing 7.44 pounds.
The 24 fisherman caught a total of 99 bass, weighing 149.41 pounds.
With this fourth straight win, Wood broke the club record of three consecutive wins set by David Smith last year.
Additionally, the Carroll Bassmasters would like to thank retiring tournament chairman, James Hewitt, for doing an outstanding job the last two years.
