12-Mile Lake was the last stop of the Hot Rod Baits Bass Series for 2017. Jon and Jeremy King dominated the event, winning by over 3 pounds with a limit of 21.37# of largemouth including the big bass of the event.
However it was Justin Heim and Andrew Paulsen that stole the spotlight coming in with a 2nd place showing and wrapping up the Team of the Year prize. They finished 2nd at Hawthorn Lake, a win at Pool 9, and their 2nd place at 12-Mile didn't make the top spot a race at all. They accumulated 9 more points than the runner-ups. A fantastic year that may never be reated, congrats guys!
The Runner-Up anglers for the Team of the Year were Jeremy and Jon King. They had a finish of 7th at Hawthorn Lake, 6th at Pool 9 and WON at 12-Mile Lake, a great year no doubt putting them in the 2nd place overall.
The third spot for Team of the Year consisted of a couple of new anglers to the tournament scene. Keith Donnelly and Dave Wilson took 3rd place when all three events were finished. They were 6th at Hawthorn, 3rd at Pool 9, and 8th at 12-Mile. A great year, and will no doubt leave them hungry for next season.
