Thanks to the entire fishermen that made 2018 a very successful year. We averaged over a 20 boat field at each tournament this year and almost everyone participating this year collected some money during the year. I feel honored to have the caliber of fishermen we have participating in the D25 AFT tournaments and wish all good luck in the National Championship on Lake Hartwell in October.
