The thump was slow for the Crappie Fishermen United of Louisiana tourney trail Saturday on the Ouachita River out of Sterlington, but there were some good fish brought to the scales and cooler weather made it a special day.
When the final fish hit the scales, Jason Thomas and Ken Myers had landed a limit of seven crappie weighing 9.29 pounds including a kicker big fish at 1.91 to claim the Thumperama championship over 16 other teams.
Here’s the way it finished:
* Jason Thomas and Ken Myers 9.29 1.91
* Carlie Mayberry and Dawson Cooper 7.01 1.55
* Paul Smith and Steve Thurston 7.01 1.41
* J.C. Morgan 6.68
* Sam Robison 6.10
Big fish: Neal Pace 2.14
* * * * * * * * * * * *
