Welcome to the American Fishing Tour

Jay Carter Wins on Stockton


Athens, Al - Jay Carter of Springfield, MO won the American Fishing Tour Missouri - Stockton division 126 tournament with five fish weighing 15.62 pounds held on Stockton on 03/21/2015.

That win also put Carter in the lead for Division 126 Angler of the Year. His five fish tipped the scales at 15.62 pounds; his Big Bass was 5.18 pounds. Jerkbait was the bait of choice for Carter, commenting the bite would have been better with a little wind.

Second place went to 2014 D126 AOY, Eric Craft of Erie, KS. His weight was 10.42 pounds. Craft, as the defending AOY and American Bass Anglers National AOY, is now two points behind Carter, 788 and 790. Angler of the Year points are determined by totaling the best four one-day tournaments and the two-day championship, all held on Stockton Lake. The winning AOY is provided the opportunity to fish at the National Championship for a fully rigged Triton Bass Boat valued at over $50,000.
George Salov of Highlandville, MO took third in the tournament with 10.03 pounds followed by local angler, Carl Cox with 9.93 pounds. These anglers also reported catching their fish on jerk baits.

Big Bass winner: Jay Carter with a 5.18 pounder
