As another season has come to an end the top ten teams plus one wild card team gathered together to compete in our annual Classic championship. The day got off to a nice start with our club being the only one at the ramp leaving everybody plenty of room for parking and to stand around and swap big fish stories before safely launching right before sunrise.

The father and son team of Roger and Aaron Marek came with their "A" game and brought in a solid bag weighing 17.99 pounds anchored by a nice 5.68 pound Kissimmee stud clinching the big win and claiming the prize of $1100 dollars. They said that swimbaits and vibrating swim jigs accounted for most of their winning bag.

Another father and son team of Buddy and Matt Byrd managed to come in second place beside the fact they failed to catch a fifth fish to fill out their limit. Luckily three of their four fish were the right size to get the job done weighing in at 16.63 pounds with their biggest one coming in at 6.44 pounds just one tenth shy of big bass honors. Talk about cutting it close.

Third place went to the team of Karl Kearcher and Brian Davidson which ironically also finished third in the run for Anglers of the Year this season. Their bag weighed 13.57 pounds and they reported that flipping accounted for all of their weight and that they were biting all the way up till it was time to leave.

Fourth place went to the winning Anglers of the Year this season Brian Wical and Santos Solis who brought in a bag weighing 13.27 pounds to add to the their winnings this year. They got to take home two nice gift certificates from our wonderful sponsor Strike Zone of Melbourne.

The team of Mike Neal and Justin Sonnier who made a strong run at the end of the season finishing up in fourth place for the Anglers of the Year standings managed to bring home Big Bass honors and $250 dollars with their nice Kissimmee stud weighing 6.45 pounds.

Great job to all the teams that competed this season! The competition was fierce all year long with record turnouts after bumping the limit of teams up to thirty. A big thanks to everyone for their sportsmanship and courteous attitudes to one another and we'll see you next season.
