Smith Mountain Lake, VA – Wrapping up the final regular season event of the Bass Cast Tourney on Smith Mountain Lake was a chilly adventure for the 22 teams that took on the challenge. Despite a cold start, the competition was as hot as ever but the fishing was not.
Chad and Elliot Pilson stole the show again, proving their angling skills by winning the day with a total catch just 1.45lbs heavier than the second-place team, Ryan and Wayne Mace, who pulled in an impressive 19.16lbs of fish. Mike Nichols and Mark Winn secured the third spot with 17.47lbs, and rounding out the top contenders were Shawn Holland and Lenny Wallace with 15.22lbs.
A special shout-out goes to the father-son team of Mike and Zack Lemaster, who snagged the “on the bubble” position and walked away with two 6″ 6th Sense TRACE Swimbaits as their prize.
As the regular season wraps up, the Bass Cast Tourney team sends appreciation to everyone who contributed to making it a success. Looking ahead, they’re excited about the championship and can’t wait to see the familiar faces of teams that participated in at least three events in 2023. By the way everyone the pot is sitting at $1,000.
Congrats to the winners, and here’s to more exciting bass fishing on Smith Mountain Lake in the seasons to come!
