In our largest tournament to date, 105 teams competed this past Sunday on the Roanoke River in Plymouth, NC. At the end of the day, it was the team of Mike Cathcart and Doug White who took 1st place honors after they weighed in over 22 pounds of Roanoke River bass and edged out their first victory of 2023.

Anglers had to dodge thunderstorms, lightning, and even hail in some cases as strong storms moved across the area Sunday afternoon. Most anglers agreed at the weigh-in that fishing Sunday on the Roanoke was tough and the weather conditions made things even more difficult.

In a post-tournament interview, Mike Cathcart stated “We started our day with a plan to look in the shallows of the sound for fish that were moving in to spawn. Our first spot didn’t pan out, nor did our second, but the third area we hit pay dirt and found them.

Mike went on to say “The fish had in fact moved shallow, much shallower than we’d planned, once we knew where they were, we hunkered down and worked on them as long as we could and came up with the right fish! Like Ike always says ‘Never give up’.

Mike and Doug won a 1st place prize of $3,000 and 2 commemorative trophies. They have also jumped out to an early lead in our 2023 Super 6 Points Championship.
