Lufkin Tandem Wins Dr Bill Shelton Fishing Adventure [PHOTOS]


Over 100 teams entered this year’s 19th annual Dr. Bill Shelton Totally Awesome Fishing Adventure on Lake Sam Rayburn.  Most of the anglers said the fishing was tough, some having issues with even getting the maximum number of 5 fish for the weigh in.

However, Jerry and Lynda Crain of Lufkin had no such trouble.  They brought in five solid bass totaling just over 20 pounds, which was more than good enough to take home first place honors as well as a check worth over $2900.

Johnny Dewald of Zavalla was the winning fisherman who brought in the biggest single bass with a fish weighing 7.54 pounds.

Certainly, the biggest winners were the cancer patients who benefit from this tournament.  Over 19 years ago, Dr. Bill Shelton saw a major need in the East Texas area.  A number of cancer patients were having a hard time to even get gas money to make it in to Lufkin to receive cancer treatments.

Shelton saw this as unacceptable and he coordinated efforts to kick off this benefit fishing tourney and it gets bigger and better every year.

A big thanks to all the sponsors, volunteers, and anglers who made this year’s tournament a huge success.
