Apache Lake never seems to disappoint in December and this event was no exception. With the top 5 teams briging in a combined total of more than 100lbs the lake really showed itself.
Like most of the 51 other teams that took to Apache Lake Saturday Daniel Uptain and Jerett Coleman had very few bites during Fridays pre-fish. That didn’t discourage them though. The veteran team partners put their heads down and brought in a limit of largemouth weighing in at 26.24lbs. Their catch was anchored by the days big fish. The 7.57lb largemouth earned them $200 in big fish money. This brought their total winnings to $2,580 as well as a pair of sweat shirts from Crossed Industries.
Taking second place was the team of Mike Reynolds and Creston Carroll. Mike and Creston took home $1,580 for bringing in 23.51lbs.
Third place went to the team of Ron Kersten and Cody Nugent. Ron and Cody took home $970 for 20.89lbs. Rumor has it they caught all their fish in the last couple hours of the day.
