The 5th Annual Back 40 Outreach Jug Fishing Tournament had a great group of 40 juggers on hand to showcase their skills in bringing in the large cats. Many parts of middle Tennessee were represented with folks coming from Murfreesboro, Smyrna, Lebanon, Old Hickory, Nashville, Goodlettsville, White House, Franklin, Brentwood, Spring Hill, Columbia, Watertown, Cottontown, Mt. Juliet plus a West Tennessean from Martin and a Texan all the way from Tyler.

The competition was fierce as several boats brought in fish to the scales. In the end, it was the team consisting of Eddie Medders, Joseph Boyd, Robert Aylward and Neal Fenton that took home the big fish trophy. Their 13.02lb catfish could not be outweighed.
Other teams and their big fish:
Team Skinner = 12.06
Team Butler = 10.82
Team Pinkston = 10.56
Team Mahaney = 9.14
Team Cook = 8.53
We had a great night of fishing and appreciate everyone that came out for this fun event. We look forward to next year's tournament as we make plans to make it an even bigger and better event.
