Oklahoma’s Fred Roumbanis edges out Paul Elias to win the PAA Tournament Series on Alabama’s Neely Henry Lake

Gadsden, AL – Fred Roumbanis started the final day of competition in the Bass Pro Shops PAA Tournament Series presented  by Carrot Stix on Alabama’s Neely Henry Lake in a bit of a funk.

After finishing the second day of the tournament in sixth place with a two day total weight of 25.76 pounds, the Bixby, Oklahoma pro was less than two pounds off the pace set by Greg Hackney, but felt as though he’d let a golden opportunity slip through his fingers after failing to boat three key bites that would have increased his total weight by over four pounds.

Friday’s lost fish were a distant memory by the conclusion of Saturday afternoon’s final weigh-in, which was held at Bass Pro Shops in Leeds, Alabama.   With a limit weighing 12.95 pounds, Roumbanis edged out Mississippi’s Paul Elias by a mere .24 pounds to hoist the PAA Tournament Series trophy with a final weight of 38.71 pounds.

We are getting ready to start into the Everstart series this year and your class will definitely help us out.

Just a quick email to let you know how much I enjoyed my trip to Pachuta. As an avid angler I found In-Depth Fishing to be a master's level course in the sport of bass fishing.  I learned a great deal and it was fun to apply the lessons while catching lunker bass (see photos).  Lake Eddins is an extraordinary fishery!
