MONETA, VA – The last CATT Smith Mountain Lake regular season fishing event came to a thrilling conclusion today, with Will Petty & Billy Kohl claiming first place after reeling in an impressive 19.22lbs catch. Forty-two teams competed in this year’s finale, showcasing a remarkable display of skill and sportsmanship under perfect angling weather. The final few hours of the event, intensified by gusty winds, were crucial in determining the final rankings.

Craig and Jimmy Blankenship secured a close second place finish with a weight of 18.78lbs, followed by Jeff and Clay Ross in third position with 17.89lbs.

Petty and Kohl, revealed that their winning strategy relied heavily on ‘Junk Fishing’. This technique involves utilizing an assortment of lures and spending a significant amount of time exploring fresh waters. Their most successful bait proved to be Green Pumpkin plastics, which were effectively fished deep into the waters.

The CATT Smith Mountain Lake season ended on a high note, reflecting the culmination of exciting competition and camaraderie between participants. We extend our heartiest congratulations to the winners, and invite enthusiasts to enjoy the thrill, competition, and community in our upcoming events.
