American Couples Series

Pam and Ken Draskovic Win on Lake Wheeler

Ken and Pam Draskovic of Scottsboro, Alabama bested the field during the Alabama North Couples Trail event held on Lake Wheeler this past Saturday, June 11, 2016. They landed a five fish limit weighing 8.58 pounds to clinch the win. Winning lures for Ken and Pam were topwaters and crankbaits. They caught their final two fish in the final 30 minutes of the day.

Rhonda Ford again won ladie's big fish using her signature frog to catch a 2.08 pound largemouth.

Jim Marona secured men’s big bass with a fish weighing 3.48 pounds.

The temperatures soared over 90 degrees and TVA was doing their best to add another degree of difficulty to the already stingy lake.

Next Divisional Tournament: This division’s next tournament will be July 9, 2016 on Lake Weiss out of the State Ramp.
