Clay Shipp Wins Toledo Bend Big Bass Splash…Barely

It’s not over ’til it’s over.

It’s not over until the fat lady sings.

Don’t count your chickens before they’ve hatched.

Keep fishing until Bob Sealy says ‘it’s history’.

Okay…made the last one up, but that’s what the 25th annual KICKS/McDonald’s Big Bass Splash on Toledo Bend came down to…and Clay Shipp of Columbia, Louisiana made it pay off with a grand prize package valued at $80,000!!  For most of the day on Saturday and pretty much all day Sunday, Wayne Ebarb of Many was the tournament leader after bringing in a bass Saturday morning that weighed 11.33 pounds.

However, with about 20 minutes to go before the tournament was history, Clay Shipp brought in a monster bass that tipped the scales at 11.60 pounds.
