2021 Classic Results

Recommended Posts

We had 4 boats fish the 2021 Classic on Douglas Lake. We were greeted with warm weather for December, blasting with air temperature in the low 50's and water temperatures at the ramp at 51 degrees. Finding measurable fish seemed to be tough for the majority with only half the field weighing in any fish. Big fish and 1st went to Chris and George with a nice mixed sack of smallmouth and largemouth. Congratulations fellas!!! Here is how things shook out.

1. Team Hopson- 5 fish-10.13.5lb-BF 2.15.6

2. Basskicker and Jigflipper- 1 fish- 0.15.3lb.

3. Peck - DNW

4. Hatfield75 and Buckeye83 - DNW

Wanted to thank Chris Hopson for getting gathering up  give away items and a couple places for donating some door prices! If you are out and about, swing by and support these folks as they have been donating for a several years! Also hit TJ Hatfield up on facebook for any custom bait paint jobs!! He does an amazing job!!

Also want to thank everyone that came out and fished with us this year! We had 47 total boats fish different tournaments with us this year, averaging 8.2 boats per tournament, which is down from years past. We want to keep this trail alive but we need your help folks. Hope to see you all and more in 2022!! Hope everyone has a great finish to 2021!!!!

I caught 3 or 4 short smallmouth before noon. Once the wind died, so did my day. Can't say that I had much of a day going, but I feel the wind would have helped. I don't fish Douglas a lot, but that is as low as I have ever seen it. Good day to be on the water for December, but horrible day of fishing. I still had a great time and hope to see everyone out again next year.

Congrats to Chris and George for making the rest of us look bad lol. Impressive limit for such a tough day.

Nice work, doods.  Always rewarding to catch them when the conditions are tuff.  I have a couple of TJ's baits.  He does amazing work indeed.

I know I say this every year but now that I'm working part time only, I will make it down for an event in 2022.  Happy holidays, y'all!

Congratulations  to Team Hopson . You sure put it on the rest of us. I lucked up and caught a retread at the ramp with about an hour to go. I still can't believe we got second place with a 15 oz. fish. Thanks for taking the time to put on these tournaments this year , it's been fun. Also a special thanks to TJ for the square bill and the glide bait. I can't wait to try them out. See you guy's next year.
