Morgan & Fernandez Are 2014 Ultimate Challenge Champions

Bass Pro Shops Crappie Masters One-Pole Ultimate Challenge was held on June 20 & 21st on Truman Lake. Sponsored by Bass Pro Shops, Tracker Marine, Humminbird, Minn Kota, Mercury Motors, Clinton Tourism and Visitors Bureau, Bucksaw Marina & Resort and Spike It, anglers competed for one of the most prestigious titles on the tournament trail as anglers could only use one pole and artificial bait only.

Anglers also had to contend with tough lake conditions as heavy rains turned lake conditions muddy during the week and many anglers were catching only a few fish per day during the pre-fishing week. Hot and humid conditions remained for the tournament, however the bite got better for competition days.

Noel Fernandez and Allen Morgan had the day one lead and needed over 9 lbs. on day two to take the victory. They accomplished it and won with a two-day total of 18.77 lbs. to became the 2014 Ultimate Challenge Champions with a crowd of over 300 witnessing an exciting weigh in.

Sponsored by Bucksaw Marina & Resort, Fernandez and Morgan fished out of a Polar Craft boat with a Mercury motor using Lowarnce electronics and a Motor Guide trolling motor. They fished in 2-3.5 foot waters catching their fish with Bobby Garland 3 inch black & pink Slab Slayers on BnM and Ozark Rods 9 foot poles. The champions earned $5,000.00 for their victory.
