2020 Angler of the Year
Classic at Camp Mack
June 12, 2021
Seven members of the club made the trek to Camp Mack on the Kissimmee River to fish our annual non-points Classic on Saturday, June 12. What made the tournament unusual was that this was a no permit event, so each member could only weigh in one fish over 16 inches. The result of this restriction was that some members were culling fish over five pounds and looking for fish under sixteen inches to fill out their limit after catching a kicker.
Kevin Copland's 7.73 pound kicker was big fish of the tournament, but Dustin McCormick's five fish, including the 5.83 pound specimen pictured below, weighed 13.07 pounds and won the day. Rick Johnson finished second with 12.22 pounds, and Kevin Copland finished third with 12.17 pounds.
