Hot Rod Baits is proud to announce that we will once again be supporting the Iowa State University Fishing Club for the 2014-15 school year! Good luck at school and best wishes on the tournament trail this upcoming year.
Travis Loving and Todd Holliday walked away with the 2014 Team of the Year award. They started the year with a win at Lake Belva Deer, followed that up with a second place at West Lake Osceola and ended the year with a limit and a 7th place finish at Pool 9. Three events, and three limits later they were crowned the Team of the Year and collected their plaques and bonus money of $450. Congratulations to both of them. Runners-Up this year were Doug Chaloupek and Dave Jordan. They had finishes of 3rd, 8th, and 6th, including limits at all three events as well. Great job to them as they collected an extra $250 for Runner-Up Team of the Year.
Pool 9 of the Mississippi River was the conclusion to the 2014 Hot Rod Baits Series. The river was high, and flowing swiftly, but the bite was HOT! The mighty Mississippi River did not dissapoint as almost every team came in with a limit of 6 bass.
Ken Lunsford and substitute Jimmy Gaard found enough bass to take the Pool 9 title, congrats to them!
