Last month the 2002 Citgo Bassmaster's Classic was held
on July 25-27 on Lay Lake in Alabama. I was really glad to see Jay Yelas
of Tyler Texas win the classic. Jay is a super person and this really
means a lot to him and his career to win the Classic. It is a thrill of
a lifetime. He also took the big bass honors all three days of the Classic.
Jay had been to the Classic 12 times but this is his first win. He took
home $203,000 in earnings with a total weight for three days of 45-13.
Second place was Aaron Martens of Castaic, California with a total weight
of 39-09 good for $55,000. Third place was David Walker of Sevierville,
Tennessee with a total weight of 35-13 good for $35,000. Also congratulations
to Bud Pruitt who came in 11th place, and Jasper's Todd Faircloth who
came in 12th place.
