Kevin West & Jayden Parrish came in 6th place with a two day total of 18.76 lbs...I just can't say enough about this team. First of all thank you to Kevin West for having the patience and taking the time to teach a young man the love of Bass Fishing. Second, I have never seen the passion for this awesome sport in any other fisherman than what I see in Jayden Parrish. This young man just turned 13 years old on September 3rd and has the fire that it takes to become a force to be reckoned with. He is polite and respectful and humble and has the hunger to learn .... Mark my words ya'll .... You will be seeing more and more of this young man in the coming years...
I would also like to thank the teams of Larry Weppler & Dennis Fikes, and Mike Johnson & Brian Adams for fishing this year with Anglers Quest. I sincerely appreciate all of these guys for choosing to support Anglers Quest.
