2009 CLASSIC
CHAMPION
BOO HAGER
CLASSIC RUN DOWN
2009 DOUGLAS LAKE TN WAS THE SETTING TO THE SHOWDOWN BETWEEN THE TOP 10 COMPETITORS AND WHAT A CHARGE  
FROM BOO HAGER TO EVEN MAKE THE CLASSIC CUT. AS BOO AND HIS PARTNER JEFF TROUT UNCOVERED THE BOAT FOR THE
FRIDAY PRACTICE SESSION THE DECISION WAS MADE TO FIND THE SHAD AND LOCATE THE BASS THAT WOULD BE FEEDING ON
THEM. THE DAY WAS FILLED WITH OCCASIONAL BASS AND THREE BETTER THAN AVERAGE KEEPERS.  
SATURDAY LAUNCH FOUND US IN INDIAN CREEK WITH A COUPLE OF KEEPERS AND STRUGGLING TO GET ANYMORE AFTER WIND
KICKED UP. WE DECIDED TO LOCATE POCKETS ON THE WIND BLOWN SIDE OF THE MAIN LAKE AND CHASE THE SHAD. IT PAID OFF
ON SATURDAY WITH TOTAL WEIGHT FOR BOO WAS 6# 2.2 OZ.  MOST CAME ON CB BITE.
SUNDAY LAUNCH WE DECIDED TO TRY TO DUPLICATE THE SHAD PATTERN AND WITH LESS WIND ON THE LAKE WE THOUGHT THE
BITE COULD BE GONE. (BOY WAS WE WRONG)
WITH IN THE FIRST THIRTY MINUTES BOO AND JEFF WAS CULLING AND TRYING TO IMPROVE ON THEIR TOTAL WEIGHT.  THE CLOCK
NEVER SEEMED TO GO SO SLOW IN OUR LIVES. ALL AT ONCE THE BITE WAS OVER AND WE FLOATED AROUND THIS POCKET AND
ATE SOME LEFT OVER BBQ RIBS DONATED BY JOSH SPEARS.
IT FINALLY SET IN FOR BOO THAT HE COULD HAVE REALLY LOCKED UP THE CLASSIC TITLE WHEN WE ARRIVED BACK TO THE
DOCK AND APPROACHED THE SCALES. SUNDAY'S TOTAL FOR BOO 13# .6 OZ GIVING HIM A TWO DAY TOTAL 19# 6.4 OZ.
ON THE LINE FOR BOO WAS THE CLASSIC TITLE AND ALSO THE OPEN CLUB TOURNAMENT AND THE BIG FISH POT. NOT ONLY DID
BOO COLLECT IT ALL HIS PARTNER "JEFF" CAME IN SECOND WITH 16# 2.6 OZ ON THE OPEN TX NEXT TO HIM.
BLESSED IS THE ONLY WAY TO SUM IT UP.....
BOO HAGER SAID "IT MAY NOT EVER HAPPEN LIKE THIS AGAIN BUT UNTIL IT DOES HE WILL HOLD ON TO MEMORIES THAT GOD HAS
BLESSED HIM WITH".  
A LOT CAN BE SAID ABOUT WINNING A CLASSIC EVENT BUT IN
THREE YRS OF FISHING THIS GUY HAS MANAGED TO TAKE
HOME
TWO CLASSIC TITLES. LAST YR WAS GREAT BUT THIS
YR BOO HAD TO BLOCK OUT THE FACT THAT HE HAD JUST
BLEW UP HIS TRITON BOAT IN PRACTICE ON FRIDAY.
STAYING CALM WAS THE KEY TO HIS SUCCESS THIS YR. HE
JUST CALLS FOR A BACK UP SKEETER AND WINS THE
TOURNAMENT. I KNOW IN HIS MIND THE CLASSIC IS GREAT
BUT HE IS SETTING HIS EYES ON THE 2011 ANGLER OF THE
YR TITLE. LOOK OUT WUSSELL HE IS COMING FOR YA.

"Boo VanDam Hager"

Most stories gain power when given by an eye witness.
This will be my take of the unsolved mystery
Can lightening strike the same person twice or even three times? Well this sounds
unlikely and the odds would be great for this to happen. Not saying I want lightening
to strike my partner (considering I usually have a pole with a NET on the end of it in
my hands at all times.) Boo Hager is some kind of “Freak of Nature” or something.
Let me explain.
It has been a year since Boo captured the 2010 Classic in which he managed to
double my catch each day (from the back of the boat). A year later, I set here
scratching my head wondering how he managed to do the exact same thing again. I
would cast to a certain spot several times while he was throwing off, he gave me a
chance at the productive area first. Then after I beat the area to death he comes to
the front and picks up the rod, makes a cast and lands not one good keeper but two
on the same cast.
Next example: Boo finds himself launching his bait to the middle of the lake trying to
get a bird’s nest out of his bait caster. While this took a couple of minutes and I have
continued to hammer the spot with no results. I hear "GET THE NET!” You have to
be kidding me? "NO, Really Get the Net!” Yep, another 2lb or so.
I guess I shared all this, to come to this point.
Boo Hager has captured his third straight Classic title and deserves all
congratulations that can be given. Yes he can knock their lights out on Douglas in
October but more than that, he is one of the most humble people I have ever been
associated with.
Glad to know he is a brother in Christ.
Boo finsihed with 20# 4oz for two day total.

JEFF TROUT
"CROWNING A NEW CHAMPION"

AFTER THREE YRS RUN BY BOO HAGER A NEW CHAMPION HAS BEEN GIVEN
THE TITLE OF CLASSIC CHAMPION.
JEFF TROUT
AS THE CLUB HAS GROWN AND THE FISHERMAN CONTINUE TO SHARPEN THEIR
SKILLS IT HAS BECOME A MAJOR TASK TO WIN A TOURNAMENT OR EVEN
PLACE IN THE TOP FIVE. AFTER NOT WEIGHING IN A KEEPER BASS IN THE LAST
FOUR TOURNAMENTS I WAS BEGINNING TO WOUNDER IF I COULD EVEN CATCH
A FISH. FALLING FROM 3RD IN AOY POINTS TO HOLDING ON TO 9TH IN THE END.
DEFINITE TURN OF EVENTS FROM THE PAST THREE YRS NETTING ALL THE BIG
BASS FOR BOO HAGER THAT KEEP LEADING HIM TO VICTORY TO HIM NETTING
FISH FOR ME. IT CAN AND DOES HAPPEN IN THE BACK OF THE BOAT.
I DON'T CARE IF I EVER RUN THE TROLLING MOTOR AGAIN.   
WINNING THE CLASSIC IS BY FAR ONE OF THE GREATEST MOMENTS ONE
COULD HAVE. IT STILL A SMALL THING COMPARED TO A FRIEND GIVING HIS
LIFE TO GOD.
THE BIG WINNER IN THIS CLASSIC IS
GARY CANADA

Eddie Collins

What can I say about this guy? Well I should start with, " I'm glad
I'm not a BASS"  Eddie has put together couple of amazing
seasons in a row and has proven he knows how to catch fish in all
types of conditions.
More than that he is a humble individual and cares for others.
Winning this classic with a club record two day total weight of

19lbs 09oz

congratulations
