The Southeast Region of Texas Bass Couples wrapped up their regular season this past Saturday on Lake LBJ. Fourteen couples fished a very windy day, each team bringing in fish.


Eric and Peggy Brigman came out on top. Catching nearly 50 fish on tournament day, the couple was able to put together a very impressive stringer weighing in at 23.89 lbs. Eric took Men’s Big Bass Honors with a 7.8 lb. trophy.


The Brigman’s sealed the deal to capture for the second year in a row, Anglers of the Year. During the six tournament season, the couple picked up three first places, two second places and a fourth place win. They brought in their limit at each tournament for a season sack of 107.08 pounds. That's an average fish weight of 3.57 lbs. Eric’s top three fish of the year weighed 11.19, 10.16 and 7.8 pounds. Peggy added with a 7.39, 5.35 and 4.88.


Wesley and Amy Johnson came in second with a 17.72 stringer. Wesley had a nice 6.93 bass to anchor the sack. James and Rhonda Kosub, finished 3rd with 14.86 pounds. Shoutout to James for a nice 6.75 bass to hold down their sack.



Top 6 teams of the year:
1st Eric & Peggy Brigman
2nd James & Janet Wannamaker
3rd Shane & Denise Kuehn
4th James & Rhonda Kosub
5th Scott & Kirsti Blakely
6th Jerry & Angie Emshoff
