Last year, Rusty White Jr. and Brian Elder just missed out on getting into the Alabama Bass Trail 100 Series. This year, they made sure they’d have a place in the ABT series, starting with the first event Jan. 21 at Lake Harris (known to locals as Lake Wedowee) by signing up as soon as registration opened.

The decision turned out to be a great one. The team captured first place among the 100 teams of professional and amateur anglers from across the country fishing for a total payout of $100,000. White and Elder collected $25,000 for their win, plus an extra $1,000 for the big fish payout. The two reeled in 20.07 pounds of bass, which included the 7.6-pound big fish.

Second-place finishers Brian Adamson and Ryan Lloyd, one of the hometown teams, landed 18.5 pounds of fish for a $15,000 payday. Jonathan Collins and Derek Hicks finished third with 17.87 pounds of fish and captured a $10,000 prize. The tournament series, in its third season, is held on three lakes. Next up is Millers Ferry on June 3, followed by Smith Lake on Nov. 4.
