FAN South’s final qualifier of the year will be held on Choke Canyon Reservoir Saturday, April 2nd.
It’s tight race for FAN South Angler of the Year with only 10 points separating the top 11 anglers! Tied for first with 988 points are Keegan Clement and Grady Walters from Guardians Bass Club. Tied for third place is Cooper Kennell and Eli Christian from Bass Club of Champions. With some big bags expected to weigh in, anything can happen on Choke!
By all accounts, Choke Canyon is fishing very well right now and it should be a very exciting day with some very large bags showing up at weigh in. In addition to the Top 10% of finishers who will qualify for the FAN Championship on Lake Conroe April 30th-May1st, this is the final opportunity to get that 3rd tournament in for those who have not done so!
