Congrats to Ray and Will on the Crappie Master's win. Below is an extract of the article:

A little hometown advantage may have played into the victory as Ray Looney and Will Evans, both from Columbus, MS, weighed in the tournament's top stringer on day two of 10.08 pounds. The weight was enough to jump from fifth place to first place and win the Midsouth Tackle One Pole Ultimate Challenge. The team’s two day total was 19.04 pounds. 

The hometown team concentrated on 14 to 17 feet of water to catch their winning bag. The duo was fishing lay-down trees along the deepest channel ledges in the river. The crappie were holding at about 12 feet deep where Looney and Evans used a combination of Midsouth and Bobby Garland jigs on 12 foot B’n’M Poles to catch them.

The winning team’s boat was equipped with a Minn Kota trolling motor and Humminbird electronics. Looney and Evans took home a check for $5200.00, which included a $500.00 bonus, donated by the Missouri Corn Growers Association and American Ethanol, for using E10 gasoline in their boat motor. Their winnings also included a $500.00 bonus from Midsouth Tackle for using Midsouth baits to win the tournament. The team is sponsored by Crappie 101 and B’n’M Poles.
