The team of Isaiah Owens and Garrett Davis continued the hot start to the season as they were the top Coffee County team.  The due landed 3 fish, weighing in at 4.35 pounds, to claim 29th place.  The team of Shannah Frame and Ceygan Thomas took home 69th place as they landed a single fish weighing in at 0.88 pounds.

The Raider anglers are back on the water on Saturday, October 7th when they will fish a region tournament on Old Hickory.  The launch will take place shortly after first light at the Bull Creek Boat Ramp just south of Gallatin.
