Sorry for the late update on the results of the Dunbar Historic Lake results. It was a long day of fishing and the bite was slow for Dunbar. Historically you could easily catch at least 5 fish that are at least 12 inches long in a morning of fishing at Dunbar lake. However this year it has been fishing a lot slower than the previous year. I think that is due to a lot heavier pressure and the fish are trying to adapt to the city tearing out all of the reeds.
Congrats to 1st place Blake Cline (right), 2nd place Casey Holdem (middle), 3rd place Matt Moore (left) and Valerie Grant for landing the big bass pot.
As most of you that follow the trail know the AOY was decided here in dramatic fashion. Blake and Clay tied after Blake took home back to back wins in the last two tournaments to tie up the standings with 293 points. Clay and Blake decided to go back to Dunbar and the first person to catch a bass over 12 inches would be declared the winner. You can view some live footage her on the Facebook live feed. Blake ended up catching one pretty quick to beat Clay in the sudden death shootout in West Texas. Congrats Blake on a phenomenal season!
Here are the final AOY standings. Dont forget the top 5 get to go on to the Yak4It Tournament of Champions on Lake Fork November 5-6th. Shane Hunter will not be able to make this trip so Matt Ramey who came in at 6th place will be making the trip to East Texas with us. Congrats to all that made it and thank you everybody who fished the trail this year.
