Clifford “Albert” Collins carried a lead of more than 10 pounds into the final day of the Bassmaster Weekend Series Championship at Sam Rayburn Reservoir. It only bigger and better from there for the angler from Nacogdoches, Texas.
Collins put the finishing touches on a dominant performance with a final-day stringer of 22.37 pounds to wrap up the victory and take away the final berth to next year’s Bassmaster Classic. He finished with 86.56, exactly 15 1/2 pounds heavier than runner-up and fellow Texan David Curtis.
Longtime Rayburn stud Stephen Johnston was 3rd with 68.53.
A story detailing Collins’ winning pattern will be published soon.
