UPDATE ON SCHEDULE
We will NOT be having round 4 on April 5th due to the Corona Virus pandemic. The safety of our teams is our #1 priority. We will have Round 4 on May 3rd (Holiday Park) $80 entry fee per boat. The Wildcard Round scheduled for May 17 in Clewiston will become Round 5, $90 entry per boat.
We will be eliminating the three wildcard spots and adding 3 points boats to round off the 23 boat Classic field … The Classic date will remain the same. If ramps are still closed in May we will review the series at that point.
This gives us a month and a half, let’s keep our fingers crossed for the best. Thank you for your understanding.
Round 3 at Okeechobee brought some tough fishing conditions again with many of Florida’s best anglers fighting post cold front conditions. Steven Forssell and Rod Sayler came out swinging, being the only team to break 20+ pounds at weigh in and making a run at the points race. Wesley Gall and Patrick Fields had a solid day, just shy of 20 pounds and topping off the top 3 in round 3 were Josh Welkes and Anthony Parrillo with almost 19 pounds!
Rounds 4 and 5 should be a slugfest down in the swamp with the lowest water levels of the year and plenty of big bass roaming the Everglades. These last 2 rounds will decide who makes the cut for the 2020 KOTG Series Classic event and will be held out of Holiday Park on April 5th and May 3rd!
1st Place: Steven Forssell and Rod Sayler
2nd Place: Wesley Gall and Patrick Fields
3rd Place: Josh Welkes and Anthony Parrillo
