Matthews man wins fishing tournament

John Cook of Matthews caught a five-bass limit weighing 13 pounds, 13 ounces April 16 to win $2,122 in the Co-angler Division of the April 16 BFL North Carolina event in Lake Wylie. He was using a Zoom Speedworm in the river to catch his limit. The next BFL North Carolina Division tournament is scheduled for May 7 on Kerr Lake in Henderson, N.C. After the fifth North Carolina Division tournament is complete, the top 40 boaters and 40 co-anglers based on point standings will qualify for the Nov. 3-5 Regional Championship on Lake Hartwell in Anderson, S.C. Boaters will compete for a top award of a Ranger 198VX with a 200-horsepower Evinrude or Mercury outboard and a Chevy pick-up, while co-anglers will fish for a new Ranger 198VX.
