Lanaville and Davis take the top spot for a second time this season in the Collins Inc. Bass For Cash Series event #5 – Presented by Outdoor Accessories Unlimited.
Event #5 for the Collins Inc. – Bass For Cash Series saw fifty-one teams converge onto Falls Lake for a little summertime pattern fishing. The anglers launched from the Ledge Rock Wildlife access just before 6:00 AM and returned at 3:00 PM for the afternoon weigh-in.
Josh Lanaville and Timothy Davis stole the show with a massive 27.99 lb limit of largemouth that earned the duo $1148.00 for their first place finish. The two tacked on some added cash by landing the lunker for the event and pocketing another $255.00 plus a $100.00 gift certificate from the lunker award sponsor Outdoor Accessories Unlimited.
As if that was not enough, Lanaville and Davis were Ranger Cup and Collins Cup registered, thus granting them a $500 Ranger Cup bonus and entry paid into a future Bass For Cash Series event of their choice. This marks the second event win for Lanaville and Davis during the 2014 season and their third overall victory within the course of the tournament trail’s two year existence, a feat that earns respect among the very talented and veteran anglers that participate in these events.
