Welcome to the American Fishing Tour

Jay Carter Wins Stockton ABA Tournament

Only two 5-fish limits came to the scales in American Bass Anglers Stockton Lake D126 tournament Saturday, July 21. But the winner weighed only three fish for 11.46 lbs, which included Big Bass that topped the scales at 6.03 lbs. Before he took them out of the bag, he was asked if he had any big ones. His reply was, “One big, one medium and one small.” And that was a good description of his catch. Second place went to Byron Maze with a 5-fish limit that weighed 9.67; 3rd place winner was Justin Delk with the other limit weighing 9.53 lbs.
 
The next tournament for this circuit is the D126 2-day Championship scheduled for August 11-12, 2018 using Old State Park as 
launch site.  Anglers must qualify for this Championship by fishing four (4) 1-day ABA tournaments in any of the ABA Divisions. D126 Angler of the Year will be decided at the end of the 2-day. A short awards presentation will take place at the end of Day 2 weigh-in. Cash and several prizes as well as plaques will be presented to the anglers. Watch FB posts for specific weigh-in times. Area sponsors including Pete’s, the Outboard Doctor, Albers Marine, Legacy Farm & Lawn, Ken’s Kafe and our newest sponsor, “That’s A Good Fish” provide the cash and prizes. 
 
Next stop for these anglers is a National Championship scheduled for October 21-26 on Hartwell Lake in South Carolina. The winner of that 3-day tournament will bring home a fully rigged Triton TR21. A host of other cash and prizes will be given away at the event.
