“Last Chance” FAN South Qualifier Choke Canyon April 4th

Mar 12, 2020

FAN South’s final qualifier of the year will be held on Choke Canyon Reservoir Saturday, April 4th , where the FAN South Angler of the Year Award and $1,500 Scholarship will be presented.

It’s an incredibly tight race for FAN South Angler of the Year with only 1 point separating first and second place – between six anglers! Tied for first with 992 points are Aaden Thomas and Lane Carpenter from Guardians Bass Club and Josh Bowman from Bass Club of Champions. Tied for second place with 991 points are Logan DeCock and Ty Mechler (Guardians Bass Club) and Tanner Lee (Bass Club of Champions). Following just behind is last year’s AOY Jacob Heidrich and his partner Hunter Turner (Guardians Bass Club) with 989 points. This year’s AOY race will truly come down to the wire.

By all accounts, Choke Canyon is fishing very well right now and it should be a very exciting outing on the lake with some potentially large bags showing up at weigh in. In addition to the Top 20% of finishers who will qualify for the FAN Championship on Lake Conroe May 2-3 and over $12,000 in scholarships and prizes, we are adding a “Last Chance” element to this tournament which will allow for a final opportunity to earn a spot in the Championship.

If you have finished in the top 20% of a qualifying event in either division and need one more tournament to qualify this is your chance, as we are going to allow the Choke Canyon tournament to count as a qualifying 2nd tournament for both South and Central anglers.

Lastly the top 3 teams in the Choke Canyon tournament that have not already qualified in any division will earn a berth to the Championship.
