Carlos Jimenez won all 3 of the club's post season tournaments this year, the Wildcard, the Classic and Buddy Bowl.
Tim Fitzgerald, Top Rod's 2014 AOY, sets a new high for Angler of the Year titles, his achivement is his 4th AOY title in a row.
Way to go guys!!
Not easy records to break.
Seehousz wins Lunker of the Year!!
Rick Seehousz waited almost the entire 2014 season to see if his early lunker fish was enough to earn the year's trophy..... it was.
Rick's 6 pound largemouth bass, caught during Top Rod's Manasquan tournament on May 17th could not be topped by any other club member. His 5 fish limit that day was a hefty 12-10 and not only contained the club's 2014 title fish, but it also earned him a 2nd place finish.

Carlos Jimenez with his winning catch
Conditions were not perfect on Cooper River this time around, constant rain, winds and fluctuating water levels made the attending 6 anglers cover lots of water looking for that keeper bite.
At the end only 4 fish were brought in to the scales and with what appears to be a first in club history, Carlos, after qualifying for the Classic by winning the Wildcard tournament earned the title with 2 fish for 3-11.
Runner ups Bill Ash and Mike Wiley display their fish.
