East Texan Finishes In Top 20 At Bassmaster Classic

An up and down tournament ended with a 17th place finish for Van's James Niggemeyer at the 2007 Bassmaster Classic at Lay Lake in Birmingham, Alabama.  Niggemeyer found himself in 17th place after day one, but fell to 21st after day two.  With the top 25 moving on to the final round, Niggemeyer was able to turn in the 12th best weight total to finish in 17th.  He earned $12,900 for his efforts.

Two other East Texans didn't fair as well.  Former Bassmaster Champ Takahiro Omori of Emory finished 36th, while Mineola's Kelly Jordan finished 44th.  Both anglers earned $10,000.

Boyd Duckett of Demopolis, Alabama edged Skeet Reese of Auburn, California by just 6 ounces to earn the top prize of $504,000.  Reese settled for $45,000.
