Welcome to the American Fishing Tour

Kevin Thompson Takes the Win at Lake Hamilton

The fourth tournament of the 2016 Ram American Fishing Tour Division 47 season was held on Lake Hamilton December 19th, 2015.  A recent cold front dropped air temperatures into the lower 30's, but the water remained in the mid to upper 50's due to the warmer than normal December; keeping some quality fish up shallow and many fish scattered.  Lake Hamilton, usually a very clear lake, was stained due to recent heavy rains but that didn’t stop the parade of limits crossing the scales. Thirty-one anglers caught 124 fish for a total weight of 220.59 pounds, nearly a two pound average. Twenty limits were brought to the scales.

Kevin Thompson topped the field with a five fish limit with a total weight of 18.30 pounds. Kevin threw a jig to haul in his limit.

Fred Martin, placing second, sacked up five fish for a total weight of 12.34 pounds. Fred relied on a dropshot rig to fill his livewell.

Rounding out the top three was Bill Cerrato. Bill threw a jig to sack up five fish for a total weight of 11.90 pounds. Bill also caught the days Big Bass at 5.51 pounds.

1st     Kevin Thompson  18.30 pounds
2nd    Fred Martin          12.36 pounds
3rd     Bill Cerrato           11.90 pounds
4th     Josh Ray              11.37 pounds
5th     Robert Scott         11.29 pounds

The next division 47 tournament is January 16th, 2016 on Lake Hamilton launching out of the fish hatchery ramp.

I’d like to thank our local sponsors who provide great support throughout the year.
