Big Ol’ Bass Tournament
On Saturday, September 25th, 130 teams competed in the 4th Annual Brett & Boomer’s Big Ol’ Bass Tournament. This tournament, which is put on by 94.9 Star Country and Conrad Brothers Marine, promises a $10,000 prize to the winners.
When the final flopping fish was weighed, many of the top finishers looked like family affairs. In addition to good friends, it included fishing partners consisting of two brothers, fathers and sons and two husband and wife pairs – quite fitting, considering how Brett and Boomer, along with the 94.9 Star Country and Conrad Brothers Marine staff, made everyone at this tournament feel like family. The humor that one would expect from these famed morning show hosts was contagious, and a good time was had by all.
The best time was certainly had by brothers Randy and Tommy Butcher, who, just one day after Tommy’s 78th birthday, took home the $10,000 prize. Their five fish limit bag of 13.96# was massive by Claytor Lake standards. The nine remaining winning places were bags that were 10.79# or less, which just magnifies how big the Butcher brothers’ bag really was.
The full results and an interview with Randy and Tommy are included below, along with photos from the event.
