Rich And Mitchell Claim Top Honors On The Tennessee Tombigbee Midsouth Tackle One Pole Ultimate Challenge PDF Print

Crappie Masters wrapped up a seven-week stretch with a very challenging two days on the Tennessee Tombigbee Waterway in Columbus, Mississippi. When expected rain didn't materialize on day one of the tournament, and beautiful weather anticipated on Saturday, the forty teams from twelve states had visions of taking advantage of the conditions with big stringers of crappie that had eluded many teams during the week of practice leading up to the two tournament days. What many had experienced in practice with many teams not only struggling to catch seven keeper fish, but to get seven bites a day, continued through the tournament. In the end it was a dose of home cooking as the top five all had local ties and expansive knowledge of this diverse waterway. When the weigh in was complete veteran anglers Harold Rich and Ferrill Mitchell claimed the top spot with the title and thousands of dollars in tournament winning along with bonus money.

Rich and Mitchell weighed in a two day total of 18.46 pounds to claim bragging rights in the Crappie Masters Mid South Tackle National Qualifier One Pole Artificial Bait Only Ultimate Challenge hosted by the Columbus Convention and Visitors Bureau. Rich and Mitchell were fishing in 12 to 15 foot of water catching their crappie near bottom both days of the tournament generally using green/white Midsouth Tackle tube jigs with Spike-It Scent added. In an interesting twist, Rich said he goes old school and uses an old obsolete flasher to locate structure. The winners took home a check for $5,000.00 for the win with an additional $500.00 bonus from Midsouth Tackle for using a Midsouth Tackle Tube, and the $500.00 Ethanol Bonus donated by the Missouri Corn Growers Association and American Ethanol for using E10 gasoline in their boat.
