Local couple favorites Jeff and Jennifer Vavra took the spotlight and $1385 for their impressive 15.44lb. stringer in the East Texas Angler's Choice Team event that left Waterwood Marina Sunday morning.After winning the Anglers Choice couples tourny the week-end previous, Jennifer and Jeff had their pattern ready for this weekend of fun.Well we say a pattern but they threw everythig at the fish to come up with a winning stringer. With mostly rainy conditions they started with Gary Yamamoto grubs in a red color,buzz baits and crank baits, they fished 10-12' of water as they came up the winning stringer of 15.44 lbs to win $1385 1st place purse. With thunderstorms brewing in all different directions it was mostly cloudy all day with scattered rain showers. Jeff and Jennifer were keying on main lake structures. The husband/wife said they team caught and culled fish all day. Breathing closely down the Vavra's neck was the Skeeter/ Yamaha team of Bill Hudspeth (Kilgore) and Brad Griffin (Carthage). Their sack of five weighed 15.17 and included Brad's Big Bass of the tournament that went 7.28 on the scales. They were fishing along deeper bulkheads using a 7 inch Riverside Big Wag Worm. $690 and $275 big bass money went into their pockets.Third place winners were also local favorites,who usually do well in our events - Randy Hillhouse and Robert Hogue from Coldspring. This team even had boat trouble, managed to catch a ride in and weigh their fish for 14.97 lbs. and $615.

Albert White (Houston) and Bill Harlan (Huffman) had second place big bass honors with a nice 6.63 pounder. This Team Champion angler also had a 3rd place big bass in Saturday's Amateur event that weighed 4.80 lbs.
