July 11, 1998 • MLF • Press Releases

Joe Setina of Pittsburg, Texas, took first place in the fourth Central Division event of Operation Bass’ new EverStart Series, with a catch of 19 pounds, 12 ounces, to capture the $35,000 first prize in the event concluded Saturday on Lake Eufaula.

Setina survived two earlier elimination rounds and 150 anglers enroute to the EverStart victory, edging out nine other finalists competing in Saturday’s final round of the professional division. He received $10,000 and a fully-rigged Ranger boat for the victory.

Jim Carnell of Muskogee, Oklahoma, took the runner-up spot with a championship round weight of 13 pounds, 6 ounces, good for $10,000.

Rounding out the top 10 in the professional division of the EverStart Series’ Central Division were: (3) Chick Campbell, Okmulgee, Oklahoma, 9 pounds, 13 ounces, $9,000; (4) Greg Dorris, Sand Springs, Oklahoma, 8 pounds, 1 ounce, $8,000; (5) David Rosengrant, Dover, Tennessee, 6 pounds, 2 ounces, $7,000; (6) Shonn Goodwin, Moore, Oklahoma, 5 pounds, 5 ounces, $6,000; (7) Clayton Douglass, Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, 3 pounds, 8 ounces, $5,000; (8) James Snell, Jr., Van Buren, Arkansas, 3 pounds, 6 ounces, $4,500; (9) Allen Head, Grove, Oklahoma, 2 popunds, 15 ounces, $4,000; (10) Terry Johnson, Sallisaw, Oklahoma, 2 pounds, 8 ounces, $3,500. The winner of the amateur division was Steven Traylor of Hillsboro, Illinois, who had a winning weight of 10 pounds, 15 ounces. Traylor collected $5,000 for his amateur division victory.

Rounding out the top 10 in the amateur division were: (2) Warren Skelton, Spiro, Oklahoma, 8 pounds, 2 ounces, $2,000; (3) Royce Dennington, Barnsdall, Oklahoma, 3 pounds, 9 ounces, $1,500; (4) Tom Jones, Rogers, Arkansas, 3 pounds, 8 ounces, $1,250; (5) Stev Standridge, Conway, Arkansas, 3 pounds, 7 ounces, $1,000; (6) Bill Guillory, Jasper, Texas, 1 pound, 11 ounces, $700; (7) Kevin Osborne, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, 1 pound, 7 ounces, $650; (8) Larry McGarrah, Rogers, Arkansas, 0 pounds, $600; (9) Jeremy Woody, Little Rock, Arkansas, 0 pounds, $550; (10) Mark Klein, Lawrenceville, Illinois, 0 pounds, $500. The win gives Setina and Traylor priority entry into the lucrative Wal-Mart FLW Tour professional bass tournaments in 1999.

The total purse for the Lake Eufaula tournament was $138,775 including a fully-rigged Ranger bass boat.

The EverStart Series consists of eight regular events, four in the Central and four in the Eastern Division, and two EverStart Challenge tournaments. The Challenge events, one per division, feature the same format as the Wal-Mart FLW Tour tournaments. The 150-man pro and amateur fields will be cut to the top 10 after two days. Amateur competition is ended at the conclusion of day three, with only the top five pros left to compete on the final day. Each of the EverStart Challenge events will be filmed for a future television segment that will air on ESPN 2.

The remaining schedule in the EverStart Series includes: CENTRAL DIVISION: EverStart Central Division Challenge, Arkansas River, Pine Bluff, Arkansas. EASTERN DIVISION: November 11, 1998, EverStart Eastern Division Challenge, Kerr Lake, Henderson, North Carolina.

EverStart™ batteries are marketed exclusively through Wal-Mart stores. EverStart is the world’s largest recycler of batteries. Other sponsors of the series include Chevrolet, CITGO, Ranger Boats, and Evinrude Outbaords.
