2022 Event 7 Lake Murray Presented by Buddies Marine and River Runner is in the books! We had a blast on and off of the water today. A ton of work was done by Chad Walden, Jaimie Walden and Buddy Walden to get the tent set up and the food set up. We had some amazing BBQ and sides. The tent was perfect because it stormed really bad just as we were going live. Thank you Buddy’s Marine and River Runner Outdoor Center for bringing us back to the amazing Lake Murray. Thank you to the 50+ anglers who came back to weigh in. It was a smaller event today with ⛈️ predicted all day and 50+ of the 76 anglers came to eat and hang out afterwards. A true testament to the group of anglers we have here. Thank you Kelly, Vice president of Lew’s for coming and donating combos to the kids! Thank you to all the sponsors for having a raffle prize for every angler. Thank you to all the anglers who fished today. It was great seeing you all again after not having a trail event in August.
We had 181 fish come across TourneyX.com today. The platform worked flawlessly and if you are comparing platforms across the sport, Dwayne Walley has the best product in my opinion. We had numerous fish over 20 inches today and 3 over 22 inches!
