Guide Outdoors Bass Expert Jim Moynagh came in 40th place last weekend in a field of 149 anglers at the Walmart Fishing League Worldwide Tour stop on Lake Eufaula in Eufaula, Ala.
Moynagh got off to a good start May 14 on Day One, registering his limit of five largemouth bass that weighed 14 pounds, 9 ounces.
Moynagh commented on his Facebook page after Day One.
“I’m sitting in 20th place of 149 after day 1 at Lake Eufaula. A good day tomorrow will put me in the cut to fish day 3. I can do it!”
The second day did not go as well as he did catch his limit of five, but they were smaller … weighing 9 pounds, 9 ounces. His two-day total was 24 pounds, 2 ounces. The weight needed to be in the top 20 to make the cut to fish on Day 3 was 27 pounds, 8 ounces.
“Today was all about the big one that got away. I kept her hooked after one jump, but not two. It probably would have been the biggest bass weighed in this tournament. So without it, I finished 40th. I got paid and live to compete another day!” Moynagh noted on his Facebook page.
The good news was Moynagh did receive a check for $9,922!
The winner of the event was Bryan Thrift, Shelby, N.C., who took home $100,000 plus a $25,000 Ranger Cup Bonus.
The next stop on the tour is June 11-14 on Lake Chickamauga in Dayton, Tenn.
