Amateur Division results
First place in the amateur division was the team of Jeff Yeakle of Jonesboro and Jonathan Brumley III of Marion with a weight of 5.08 pounds and earning $650. Yeakle and Brumley were slow trolling Southern Pro chartreuse sparkle jigs tipped with shiners in 4 to 5 feet of water to catch over 100 fish for the day.
Second place went to Eric Vandeventer and Monte Martin of West Lafayette with a weight of 4.19 pounds and earning $400. Vandeventer and Martin also captured big fish of the event with a 1.53-pound crappie, giving the team an additional $234.50. Vandeventer and Martin, like the others, were spider rigging in 14 to 20 feet of water using Southern Pro jigs tipped with crappie Nibbles with most of their 130 to 140 fish coming off points.
Looks like most of the successful anglers chose Mississinewa over Salamonie.
