Congratulations to our 2017 MKFS Grand Champion Andy Moore with 99.25″!

Andy came into the Live Event tied in 2nd place overall with a total 12.00″ bonus earned throughout the online series.

In April, Andy filled his card of Crappie and was able to squeak out a 3rd place finish to earn himself 4.00″ total inches toward the Live Event.

In May, Andy struggled to find any largemouth bass over 20″ but was able to fill his card. Andy was applied the standard 5.00″ toward the Live Event.

In June, Andy again filled his card and finished the month with the standard 3.00″ toward the Live Event.

At the Live Event, Andy displayed incredible adversity picking through a small pod of bass off shore at Lake Wanahoo. Andy says, “I was in the zone and everything was going right. As fishermen, we all experience those days and it is special when it happens.”.
