Tim Rhoads and Larry Chapman win big

Posted: 6/3/2008

&Triton Owners Tournament
Kentucky Lake May 30 & 31, 2008

What a Tournament! 339 teams showed up to fish Friday and Saturday at beautiful Paris Landing State Park and from the looks of the crowd at the weigh-in everybody caught fish. Tim Rhoades emerged from the battle with a hard fought victory under his belt with an amazing 50.83 pounds for 2 days (a 5 pound average). Tim wouldn’t divulge his fish catching secrets, as he is a local and fishes Kentucky Lake Tournaments regularly. Tim won $7,000.00 for 1st place and another $3,000.00 for 1st big fish for a $10,000.00 payday. Not bad for catching “ little green fish “ to quote Rick Clunn. 2nd Place was Rogne Brown who 2 days earlier had won the Triton Gold Elite Tournament Rogne only had 49.22 pounds this time for a 4 day total of over 99 pounds. 3rd place was Jerry Bond 43.91 pounds, 4th place was Scott Mansfield with 40.50 pounds and 5th place was Keith Amerson with 39.95 pounds.
Everyone in attendance enjoyed themselves and the weatherman cooperated by providing gorgeous Tennessee weather both days of the event. Triton had something for everyone bicycles for the children, a “Dash for Cash” for the ladies fishing tackle, electronic, batteries, trolling motors for the anglers.
The Triton payback was 100% along with a beautiful 21X2 boat powered by a 225 Optimax engine from Mercury Marine. Command Sergeant Major Larry L. Chapman of Clarksville, Tennessee won the draw boat. After 30 years of defending our great country what a fantastic reward for Command Sergeant Major Chapman who is thinking of retiring next year. In all Triton paid out over $66,000.00, plus a new boat valued at $48,000.00 and another $12,000.00 in fishing related products. No wonder the T.O.T. is the tournament so many look forward too. And if that’s not enough the anglers caught over 7000 pounds of fish Friday and Saturday.
