Congratulations to Jordan McDonald for finishing in second place in the Bulldog BFL on Lake Eufaula last weekend. He beat out about 199 other fishermen on the boaters’ side in the tournament. Fishing against some of the best fishermen in the state, that is quite an accomplishment.
Jordan’s five bass weighed 16 pounds, 12 ounces, just two ounces less than first place winner. Those two ounces were worth $2000 each in winnings!
Jordan joined the Flint River Bass Club as soon as he turned 16, the minimum age. He started fishing as my partner the end of that year and joined the Spalding County Sportsman Club the next year as my partner.
We fished together for almost ten years then he moved on up, fishing as a no-boater in BFLs and the BASS Weekend series. He did well in both, winning one trail’s no boater points standings one year and making the regional tournaments in both.
After starting a business and a family he got a boat and got back into fishing big time the year, and I look forward to seeing him post many wins and top ten finishes in the future!
