Donald McCormick of Greenville, Indiana won the event with an 11.19-pound bass, winning the angler a 2013 Skeeter FX Series bass boat and an electronics package valued at $75,000.

While McCormick’s lead held the entire weekend, one of the big stories of the tournament was when 14-year-old Garrett Reding of Van, Texas weighed in a 2.95-pound bass which was the largest bass caught “under,” the Lake Fork Slot limit of 16-inches to 24-inches. The bass was caught on the second day of the tournament, just prior to the final weigh in of the day.

“The Skeeter Owners Tournament has become the largest of its kind and remains the premier event for Skeeter Owners,” said Ben Jarrett, Director of Sales and Marketing for Skeeter.
