Fife and Davis team up to win championship at DeGray
BISMARCK, Ark. — Fishers of Men teammates Flannagan Fife and Royce Davis made B.A.S.S. history by becoming the first team winners of the inaugural Toyota Bonus Bucks Bassmaster Team Championship today at DeGray Lake.
The Arkansas anglers topped a field of 155 two-man teams from a host of B.A.S.S.-sanctioned team trails across the country to earn the championship title along with the grand prize of a Nitro Z7 bass boat/Mercury Optimax 150 Pro XS outboard rig and the Livingston Leader Award of $500. The national champions also received a travelling trophy to take back to their Fishers of Men team trail.
Today’s action concluded the team competition of this unique four-day tournament. Tomorrow the six anglers from the Top 3 teams will fish individually for the final two days of competition. The individual champion qualifies for the final 2015 Bassmaster Classic berth and receives a Skeeter FX20/Yamaha 250 outboard rig to run in the Classic.
