Billy Graves To the Lead

The competition has really tightened heading into the final day of the Ray Scott Championship. The top 10 boaters are only separated 5.41 pounds.  Billy Graves of Montgomery, LA has moved into first place with 30.80 total for 3 days.  The field has been cut to the top 25 boaters and co-anglers for the final day.

 “I hit numerous spots the past couple of days on the Red River.  I found a few of the spots holding schooling fish and that’s where I caught my smaller fish each day.  After I caught my limit of the smaller ones I’d head out to open water to try and cull up.  The wind kept me out of my open water today, so when I took first with only a little over five pounds I was shocked.  Tomorrow I feel the fishing will be slow and I hope the wind dies down so I can fish the open water spots I found,” said Graves.

Scott Dean of Terrell, TX is sitting in second place only ounce behind the leader. He brought in five fish limit giving him a three day total of 30.11 pounds.

Tyler Rivet of Raceland, LA is sitting in third with a three-day total 29.25 pounds.

The race to see who takes the co-angler title is a close on as well. A little over two pounds is separating the first and second place.

Jared West Mont Belview, TX will be taking the lead on the co-angler side into Championship Sunday. He has a three-day total of 16.82 pounds.

“I was fishing with soft plastics today. My boater ran south where I was able to catch a few fish. I did not fish to clean today, I missed three fish this morning,” stated West.

David Simpson Jr of Gotham, FL is sitting in second with a three-day total of 14.31 pounds.

James Dutton of Hemtill, TX is sitting in third with a three-day total of 14.04 pounds.

Day 4 weigh in will begin at 3:00 pm Saturday April 8, 2018. We will crown a new Ray Scott Champion tomorrow.
