These three nice stripers gave David Woodward of Charlotte (left) and Robert Steele of Lexington a winning, 33-pound catch in the Tarheel Striper Club tournament on High Rock Lake in mid-November.
Ernest Stephens of Orrum earned an invitation to FLW’s BFL All-American by winning the co-angler division at the Oct. 25-27 Wild Card Tournament on Alabama’s Lake Guntersville.

Stephens had 5-fish limits weighing 11-3 and 18-9, finishing with 29-12 to win by more than a pound.

The first-place check was $2,346, but as important to Stephens is the berth in the All-American, which will be held in June on Tennessee’s Nickajack Lake.

Mike McDonald of Randleman was the top North Carolina finisher in the boater division with 17 pounds; he won $366.
