Andrews reels in $100,000 bass

Thursday, June 30, 2005

Eric Andrews of London, Ark., collected $100,000 June 26 for winning the 2005 Arkansas Ford Dealers Big Bass Bonanza. Andrews outfished over 3,000 other anglers by catching a 6.59-pound bass on Lake Dardanelle to take top prize in the three-day event, now in its sixth year.

The annual event, which has become on of the largest amatuer bass tournaments in the country, spans more than 300 miles of the Arkansas River and paid out more than $300,00 in prize money.

Andrews planned to split the prize money with his fishing partner and co-worker, Mark White.
