BFCS Two-Day Championship Details

Vaughn Wins Two-Day Championship – Vann & Lewis Win Optional Points Competition

20140906_070504

Over $14,000 in cash awards handed out at season ending event!!!

20140907_063851After six regular season tournament events, sixty-two anglers were eligible to compete in the Collins Inc. – Bass For Cash Series two-day championship event held on Shearon Harris reservoir.  A tough bite coupled with the 16” to 20” slot limit in place on the Central North Carolina body of water created some disappointing faces on many anglers by the end of the event.  Many competitors reported multiple fish landed within the established slot length that would have certainly helped their cause on any other lake in the area, but unfortunately these fish had to be returned to the water.  “The slot limit in place on this reservoir does a great job of keeping quality fish present, but it certainly does not allow tournament anglers the ability to showcase their true catch by day’s end” says tournament director Jeff Narron.  However, several anglers were able to avoid the feared slot limit with a handful of competitors managing to net fish above and beyond the five pound mark, a weight typical for a Shearon Harris largemouth at the upper end of the slot length.

20140907_153735Sticking to one pattern, Ronald Vaughn took the top spot in this season ending tournament with 24.16 lbs earning a very nice payday of $2734.00 for his two day effort.  Skeet Bennett and Buster Seabolt settled for the number two spot with their 19.67 lb catch, including the lunker for the event at 8.22 lbs, earning the duo $1608.00 for the second place finish, $345 for the lunker, and a $100 gift certificate from lunker award sponsor Outdoor Accessories Unlimited.  Landing in the third spot was the team of Josh Lanaville and Timothy Davis with their 18.48 lb catch granting the duo $1158.00 for their weekend on the water.  In the fourth and final paying spot for the event was the duo of Raymond Jones and David Lanaville with a total of 17.33 lbs allowing the pair to split $932.00 for the event.

Points Champions Crowned

Additional awards were also handed out during the event to the top three positions among the Optional Points Competition (OPC) anglers.  After a very consistent season at the top of the leader board, Steve Vann and Richard “Skippy” Lewis were crowned the OPC Champions for 2014 and received a payout of $3700.00 as their first place prize.  Fighting their way from outside of the top five at one point in the season, the team of Tommy and Wilburn Rutledge turned things around by season’s end and filled the second spot in the OPC battle and received $2200.00 for their efforts.  Making a late season charge in the standings and rounding out the final prize earning position in the OPC, the tandem of Ronald and Ronnie Clark took home a check for $1500.00 for their third place result.
