Outlaw Outdoor Tournament Results


Tom Behrens has over 50 years experience in fishing and hunting across the United States. Much of this time was spent in Oklahoma and Texas where he became very familiar with the outdoor opportunities in these states. You may contact him by email at:

Just prior to the storm this past weekend, Jason Moorhead and Thomas Lewis, Jr brought in a nice bag of fish weighing 21.56 pounds with a big bass weighing 7.00 pounds. Based on how stingy Rayburn was on Saturday, many folks expected this to hold onto the lead until the end.

The team of Cameron Potter and Willie Fabre brought in a stringer weighing 19.02 pounds, but more importantly they had a big one weighing 8.08 and taking over the lead for big bass. About 30 minutes before the scales closed, everyone started hearing rumors of a big sack coming with a giant in it! Sure enough, up to the scales walk Ricky and Bobby Guy. They stole the show with their five fish weighing 26.39 with a huge female mixed in weighing 10.64 pounds.

This moved the father/son team into the lead by almost five pounds, and that is where they stayed until the scales closed at 4:00. Moorhead and Lewis finished the day in second place while Potter and Fabre took home third place honors.
