Tracy Watkins takes the win on Clarks Hill Lake

 Thirty three anglers participated in the March 25th, 2018 AFT D25 tournament at Clarks Hill Lake. The day started out at 40 degrees and raining, by the 3:30pm weigh in time the temperature had risen to 55 degrees and the sun had began to shine through the clouds. The water temps were ranging from 52-55 degrees depending upon what section of the lake you were fishing. The bite is still off a little due to the night temperatures fluctuating so much and being in the middle of the spawn.

Tracy Watkins of Williamston, SC took the win with a limit weighing 17.26lbs. Tracy earned $723 for 1st Place + $192 for 1st Place in the Option Pot for total winnings of $915.

Rick Cantrell of Anderson, SC finished in 2nd Place with a limit weighing 14.75lbs. Rick earned $454 for 2nd Place + $128 for 2nd Place in the Option Pot for total winnings of $582.

Bobby Stanfill of Greenwood, SC finished in 3rd Place with a limit weighing 13.52lbs. Bobby earned $187 for 3rd Place.

Don Branham of Hodges, SC finished in 4th Place with four fish weighing 13.31lbs. Don also had the Big Fish of the tournament with a 5.96lb largemouth. Don earned $144 for 4th Place + $165 for the Big Fish Pot for total winnings of $309.

Tracy Webb of Elberton, GA finished in 5th Place with a limit weighing 12.68lbs. Tracy earned $108 for his 5th Place finish.
