They won it with a tournament record 106.95 lbs. Second place was a very respectable 82 lbs.

Cool stuff. I wish that we had tourneys out here. Not that I would ever have a chance at winning but it would be interesting to watch!

Hey, I was at mountain island this week. That was an impressive catch. Did you get a picture of the gizzard shad that came out of that one catfish? That would be a cool pic

Yes, humbling.

We had a good day, a great day, and when 63 pounds popped up on the scale for our total weight I was even happier. On a normal day that weight had a good shot at winning, but like I told Billfish76 when we were out there, "if we found them, someone else did too."

And they did, in a GRAND FASHION!

I think it was probably even more humbling for Kevin Custer and Jerry Hilderbran. Those guys have fished and won a lot of tournaments on Mt. Island Lake and know what it takes to win. Their 83 pounds would have won 9 out of 10 events there. Another awesome sack of fish.

Omar, Tracy, Jerry, and Kevin are some amazing catfish anglers. Congrats on an AWESOME record breaking tournament day on MIL!!!

that is not right that 18lb that is not 49lb at all:confused2: to little
I beg to differ sir. I took the photo right after it came off the tourney scales 49+. That fish was fat from one end to the other and it was every bit of the 49 the scales said it was.
