As a means of showing appreciation for the success of the Collins Inc. dealership and the business that many of you have conducted at their location, Collins Inc. would like to offer some special deals on service work, whether it be a need for a repair, preventative maintenance, or that accessory you’ve had your eye on.

20140503_122447

Event number three for the Collins Inc. – Bass For Cash Series took place May 3rd on beautiful Kerr Lake located near Henderson, NC. Fifty-two teams were greeted to great weather conditions on this well known fishery along the NC / VA border. Anglers reported the fish to be in various stages of the spawn with some largemouth already beyond their spawning cycle, some up shallow on the beds, while others seemed to be making a late arrival to the backs of pockets for their yearly rituals.

IMG_0269IMG_0266

Josh Lanaville and Timothy Davis appeared to be on track for a mediocre day, but fate and faith worked in their favor as the duo netted back to back five pounders late in the day to seal the deal. “Tim and I both called for the net within seconds of each other. We hooked five pounders at the same time!” said Lanaville. The pair took the top spot with a total of 16.35 lbs, including the event lunker at 5.43 lbs earning the anglers a total of $1430 for their efforts plus a $100 gift certificate from Lunker Award sponsor Outdoor Accessories Unlimited. By being part of the Ranger Cup and Collins Cup incentive programs the anglers will be awarded an additional $500 payout from Ranger Boats and have earned a pre-paid entry into a future BFCS event.

Settling in the second position with 15.80 lbs and a check for $663 was the team of Mike Lanier and Norman Mullinex. Third place went to JR Bowens and Robert Barrett with their catch of 15.08 lbs earning the pair a payday of $526. Abe Gaeta and DJ Mysilinski cashed in to the sum of $448 for their fourth place catch of 14.99 lbs. Steve Vann and Richard “Skippy” Lewis gained a little extra momentum in their quest for the Optional Points Competition payout with their fifth place finish at 14.40 lbs landing the duo a $390 payout. Sixth place and $292 went to the team of Daniel Wood and Tyler Adams for their catch of 13.64 lbs. Glenn Aycock and Ethan Howard found their way into the seventh position with their 13.25 lb limit and earned $215 for their efforts. Rounding out the final paying spot was the eighth place team of Johnny Wood and Mike Hodge with their catch of 13.09 lbs giving the duo $195 for their day on the water.

IMG_0247

Steve Vann and Skippy Lewis begin to pull away somewhat in the Optional Points Competition, but a great race for the second position is starting to shape up with only seven points separating second place from fifth. Raymond Jones and Fred Page currently hold the second position followed by third place Billy Vierra and Harry Smith, fourth place John and Michael Morton, and then the fifth place team of Wilburn and Tommy Rutledge.
