The Tuesday Night Fishing Tournaments held their championship event on Eufaula Lake in September, with several local fishermen and women taking home prizes and new fish tales.

The tournaments begin in April and last on Tuesdays throughout the summer and into September. This year’s championship event was held on Sept. 12, with anglers of all ages from around the area participating in the event.

Zac Oliver took home first place and a grand prize of $675 with a total weight of 15.56 pounds. Oliver also took home the reward for the biggest bass — at a weight of 5.41 pounds — to make a grand total of $1,055 in prize winnings.

Anglers also were rewarded with prizes for taking the top spot in a variety of specialty categories. Prizes included rods, reels, and tackle boxes.
