Vandyke Cranks His Way to Individual Title, Harvey's Hold Off Field for Team Win

Rain fell and the wind blew as the TNCBA anglers launched their boats for the first night tournament of the year on South Holston Lake.

With cooler temperatures and cloudier conditions than previous days, anglers looked to take advantage of an evening bite before the darkness set in for the night. Team Harvey was the team to capitalize in the wind landing two keepers on a jerkbait. The Harvey's would add to their total later in the night with a worn and tube...they would bring five fish to the scales totaling 11.67 lbs., but two dead fish would cost them two pounds and give them a final total of 9.67 lbs. 

 Bob Harvey - 5.96 lbs.

Mike Vandyke stuck with his go-to bait, a crankbait, throughout the night. Mike grinded a Rapala DT crankbait along the bottom to amass 8.72 lbs. that was anchored by a 4.02 lbs. smallmouth which also claimed big fish for the tournament.
