With the 2023 season coming to end, Angler of the Year, Rookie of the Year and Team of the Year were all awarded this past weekend at Lewis & Clark. With the two day Championship awarding points to members for each day, it really shook things up. This was the tightest AOY race we’ve ever had with 1st, 2nd and 3rd all being decided by the tie breaker (best tourney finish).
There was also a three-way tie for third and his second place finish on Day 1 of the Championship was the deciding factor as Kyle Christensen came in 3rd. He earned himself a $150 gift card to Select Sail & Sports, LLC and a $150 gift card to Fish365 Custom Rods.
Your 2023 Ice Hole Power Team of the Year was Team Slaunch Snatchers of Kevin Workman and Sam Burke. They’re consistent fishing earned themselves Power Boxes with 15ah batteries.
Our Tuesday and Thursday League Angler of the Years was Marty Hughes (Tuesday) and Kyle Christensen (Thursday). They both took home a $100 gift card to @LS_Lures.
Congrats to all the anglers on a fantastic year, these guys really earned it against some of the best anglers in the state!
We also want to sincerely thank Select Sail & Sports, LLC for being our title sponsor for another year. Please show them and all our sponsors support. If it wasn’t for them all, we wouldn’t be able to provide you with such a great series!
