The 2020 season has come to a close for the Indiana West Boggs division of the Spiderwire Weeknight Series.
Finishing the season with a win, was Ron and Sam Maxwell. Sam had to fish this one solo, but was able to bring 5 fish to the scales that weighed 11.44. Coming in second, was Gary and Nate Higgins with 5 that weighed 11.27.
The big fish of the night, at 3.93 lb, was caught by Draven Eads. He and his partner Don Apple took the third place spot.
The season points championship came right down to the wire. With the win, the Maxwells made a big points jump. Brian and Kaleb Rusher came into the final event with a slight points lead, and when the second place team wasn't able to be there for the final event, it looked like they would easily cruise to the championship. But the jump that Team Maxwell made by winning, put them into a tie for in the final points standings.
In all Fishers of Men series', season points ties are broken by total season weight. Since the Rushers had the heaviest season weight (by a mere 3lb), they were able to hold on to the championship.
Congratulations Brian and Kaleb!
With their championship, they are have earned the right to enter the Berkley Team Series District 10 Championship on Lake St Clair in September.
