Jay Carter Takes Win and AOY

Jay Carter of Springfield, Missouri won the AFT D126 2-day Divisional Championship held on Stockton Lake on August 27th and 28th. Jay came back from a weight of 4.09 pounds on day 1 and brought in a weight of 14.72 pounds on day 2 with a total weight of 18.81 pounds for both days. His catch also included Big Fish for the second day at a weight of 6.27 pounds. Jay took home $1,204 for his efforts. Jay also took the Angler of the Year title for D126. He will compete against 40 AOY's from other divisions and will have a chance to win a fully rigged Triton boat.

Second place went to Greenfield, Missouri angler, Mike Dill, with a total weight of 11.99 pounds. Mike also caught Big Fish on day 1 weighing in at 2.77 pounds. Mike pocketed $540 for second place.

Coming in third was Scott Tassi of Arma, Kansas with a total weight of 11.77 pounds. Scott took home $158 for his efforts.

The weather on both days was cooperative, but the fish, not so much. Sunshine and clouds ruled both days, with not much wind and temperatures reaching the upper 80’s. Anglers enjoyed a Saturday afternoon meal at Ken’s Café in Arcola. Awards were presented Sunday immediately following the weigh-in. There were plaques, prizes and/or cash for all participants.
