    Big Cat Benefit Tournament
    Thank you to all the anglers that came out Sunday and fished the Kevin Shaw Benefit Tournaments.
    NEOCATS held a tournament at Spencer Lake in Medina County and the Deer Creek Catfish Association and the Ohio Hills Catfish Club held a tournament at Buckeye Lake east of Columbus. The sacrifice these anglers gave up to help out a fallen brother was amazing.
    Talk about a challenge. The morning started out cold and windy and finished even colder. The temperature never got above 35, and with the snow flurries and constant wind it felt a lot colder.
    At the Spencer Lake tournament:
    20 anglers fished but only 4 caught fish.
    Nathan Torres of Elyria took the First Place honors with 8 pound 6 oz Channel.

    Skip Martin of Copley had Second Place with a 6 Pound 8 ½ oz Channel.

    Ryan Lawrence of Enon Valley, PA came in Third Place with a 5 pound 5 oz Channel.
    [​IMG]
    Theresa Shanks of Elyria finished Fourth with a 3 pound 6 ½ oz Channel.

    At the Buckeye Lake Tournament:
    7 anglers fished and they all caught a lot more fish than we saw at Spencer. Mike “Money Bags” Wahl took tops honors there with a 5 pound Channel. Danny Caudill, Criss Sexton, and Joe Aucreman all tied for Second with 4 pound 4 oz Channels. A special thanks to Tom Long for organizing this event at Buckeye Lake.

    Both top winners donated their winnings back to Kevin’s family and overall the two groups of die-hard catfish anglers raised a total of $550.00 to help them.
    Another thanks to Cripple Creek Bait and Tackle in Uhrichsville, Sunrise Outfitters in Wooster, Land Big Fish in Barberton, Chet & Fran’s Country Store in Wellington, and Fin, Feather, and Fur in Ashland for donations they made.
    Carl Myers won an Okuma Combo.

    Jason Stanfield won an American Spirit NiteStick.

    Theresa Shanks won an Ugly Stick .
    [​IMG]
    Roy Boyes won a Fish Gripper/Digital Scale.

    Me and my little brother T-bone froze are backsides off but were very proud to do it for such a noble cause. We are both glad to be affiliated with such a great bunch of people that would come together for a benefit in a snowstorm. We busted out but but had a great time.

    Awesoe tournament/Great cause.
