    HBC-6 Results

    PLACE ANGLER WEIGHT WINNINGS
    Top Four
    1 John Wick 6.16 $10,600
    2 Manas Malikian 5.96 $360
    3 Robert Flaata 5.93
    4 Butch Brown 5.90

    I was a VTO on Flaata's boat. He works with Butch Brown, and fishes with him/understudy, so I learned a lot about fishing the Hudd, it was a blast. He almost won, missed by an ounce and we never left the ramp area, his cranking battery was dead on launch. BUT I felt right at home as last 6 times out I took my own aluminum boat, san motor since it was stolen, and had to work the same areas- weird. God has a sense of humor is all I can say!

    Congrats John, you beat the best of the best.

    Thanks for the post. I was wondering how things went up there. I was off on friday but had to work the night before or else I would have tried to get in on the VTO thing. Would have paid money to be in Long's boat.

    Congratulations John

    We had HBC-6 Tournament Director Ron C and M.C. Stan V on the Rod & Reel Radio show last Sunday evening and they mentioned that John had a load of fish that were clones.

    John estimates that his 5 best bass would have weighed-in at over 25lbs.

    Look forward to seeing you back fishing in San Diego.

    Hopalong
