Former LERA Bass Club member Jim Folks finished 3rd in the two day BFL Gator division event out of Camp Mack on 10/3-10/4 with a two day total weight of 31 pounds and 11 ounces. His weight was just over 2 pounds shy of the winning the event. Jim routinely trounced us on the Kissimmee Chain and pretty much every where else too. It's good to see him doing well on a bigger stage. Full boater results can be found here.

Jackie Barber, reigning LERA Bass Club Bassmaster of the Year, placed 7th overall on the co-angler side of the same tournament with a two day weight of 18 pounds and 15 ounces. Congratulations Jackie! Full co-angler results can be found here.
