Now we move on upriver to Rich Friend and Justin Whitten, a.k.a. “DUB”. DUB is returning to the tournament after being away on hiatus for a few years! Welcome back DUB! They had the Mandee Kauffman group. I was able to talk with this group after their trip and they said they really had alot of fun! This was a first tme trip for these ladies…mostly made up of nurses and they were a treat to have on board! They boated 11 fish for the day! Ann Hall caught a 24 1/2″H, while Shelley DeVore caught a 26″H and a 22″H. Brandy Bommersback also caught two fish: 25″H, 25 1/2″H; so did Joan DeVore: 23″H, 251/2″H.
