Welcome to the American Fishing Tour

Mike Guilbeau wins on Clarks Hill Lake


Thirty anglers fished the D25 AFT tournament at Clarks Hill Lake. The day started out with temps in the low 30’s and increased to the mid 50’s for the 3pm weigh in. Clarks Hill Lake is down around nine feet from full pool with water temps from 47-54 degrees and clear to stained water in the creeks. Fishing was tough to say the least as only 13 of the 30 anglers caught a 5 fish limit. Fish were reported being caught on a variety of baits by all anglers due to how tough the bite was. 

Mike Guilbeau of Evans, GA took the win with a limit weighing in at 14.70lbs. Mike earned $680 for 1st Place + $162 for 1st Place in the Option Pot for total earnings of $842. 

Russell Clark  of Abbeville, SC came in 2nd Place with a limit weighing 13.62lbs. Russell earned $424 for 2nd Place + $108 for 2nd Place in the Option Pot for total earnings of $532.

Jerry Kotal of Elberton, GA finished in 3rd Place with a limit weighing 10.52lbs. Jerry earned $157 for his 3rd Place finish.

Franklin Ramey of Abbeville, SC finished in 4th Place with 10.35lbs. He received $123 for his 4th Place finish.

Tony Holliday of Piedmont, SC finished in 5th Place with 10.24lbs. worth $86.
