James Takes Win at D39 Championship

Scott James of Wilmington, Illinois won the AFT D39 two day Divisional Championship held on Mississippi Pool 13 on August 20th and 21st. High water, fast current, and muddy water slowed a normally great bass catching river, but the conditions didn't slow Scott who caught three fish each day with a total weight of 13.25 pounds.

Eric Heck of Joliet, Illinois also bagged a total of six fish for a second place finish and a weight of 12.14 pounds. 
Dave Schultz of Wilmington IL, had big bass for the two day event weighing 3.26 pounds. 

Top Five Finishers:
1. Scott James     13.25 lbs
2. Eric Heck         12.14 lbs
3. Matt Marques   10.66 lbs
4. Mike Koenig     10.15 lbs
