Tommy Dickerson of Orange said he was going to swing for the fences Sunday at the FLW Pro Circuit Tournament on Sam Rayburn. He hit a home run and it was almost a grand slam as he climbed from fifth to a second place finish with an 18-0 bag. The largest bag of the day by five pounds.
He finished just two and a half pounds behind the wire to wire winner John Cox who finished with 65-15 to Dickerson’s 63-8.
Dickerson brought home a big $30,000 check as the only Texan who made the top ten. Dickerson said he fished dirtier water to get away from the pressure of other fishermen. Dickerson’s finish also qualifies him for the championships in August.
