FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
For guide Mark Shepard, a past 5 time championship
qualifier and BASS 150 competitor the new Stren Series was a another accomplishment for his resume. He really looks forward to this years championship on Lake Wheeler and is very positive about chances.
Mark was in 7 place overall going into the last event in Santee Cooper, after a disappointing 121 finish he still held onto 23 overall in the points. Mark’s really looking forward to Lake Wheeler and reminds us that his goal was to qualify for the event, then focus on winning the championship!
Rick on the other hand has dominated fishing in the south central Florida for the last few years and this was his first attempt at going out of state. Also, like Mark his goal was to qualify for the championship and he did on the first try at the tour.
Rick, also had a disappointing finish at Santee Cooper but caught enough to finish in 33 place overall.
The championship starts on November 1, 2006 and is being held on Lake Wheeler. The word is that the flipping and frog bite will be on! So, watch out they both will be swinging for the fence.
If you are going to be in the area, stop by and say high to the guys. I am sure they would enjoy seeing you!
