Okies are tearing it up on the Bassmaster Elite Series.
Two weeks ago, Kenyon Hill of Norman won the Pride of Georgia event on Clarks Hill Lake in Columbia County, Ga.. This past weekend, Fred Roumbanis of Bixby captured the Carolina Clash on Lake Murray in Columbia, S.C.
Edwin Evers of Talala finished third in both events. All three Oklahoma anglers are now in the top 10 in the Bassmaster “Angler of the Year” points race.
Hill is sixth, Evers is seventh and Roumbanis is ninth.
Canton Lake’s walleye rodeo produced several new lake records over the weekend.
Justin Norton of Wagoner landed a 7.4-pound largemouth bass; Seven-year-old Raylee Tautfest of Canton caught a 1.5 pound sunfish that is the new lake record; and Corey Newer of Enid caught the big prize, a 9.3-pound walleye that was the biggest walleye of the tournament and the new lake record.
Lake Thunderbird also established a new record on Saturday when Delbert Gault of Newalla caught a 7.1-pound largemouth bass on Hog Creek during the Muscular Dystrophy’s Association “Big Catch” tournament.
