The Texscape Services 3rd Annual 4th of July Tournament is in the books with a pair of brother-in-laws taking home the victory and Pride Rods Big Bass honors.

When teams started rolling in about 2 o'clock, it wasn't long before some big bags crossed the scales. The second team to weigh in was the duo of Tim and Cole Stewart. Their three fish weighed in at 17.34 lbs and would take home second place honors for the tournament.

The brother-in-law team of Jerry Mason, Jr. and Dustin Perkins brought in an impressive three fish limit that topped the scales at 18.28 lbs. Dustin Perkins caught his new personal best of 9.60 lbs that won the Pride Rods Big Bass honors.

Third place honors went to the father-son team of Jimmy and Brian Robison. Their 16.99 lb bag of fish was anchored by Jimmy Robison's new personal best of 9.39 lbs.
