The Bayou Boys had a lot of catching up to do after the combined force of Katrina and Rita dealt their blows. But in the end, Addis Meachum captured the 2005 Angler of the Year title. He had to chase down Paul Johnson on the final weekend to do it, but outdistanced him by 4 points. Bolstered by three 1st place finishes (all in a row) and two second places, he finished the year with 135 points. Johnson finished with 131 points, with one 1st, three 2nd's, and two 3rd's.
The top six is as follows... Addis (135 points), Paul (131), Todd (129), Eddie (122), Melvin (121), and Chris (121).
Todd Schaubhut took Lunker of the year with a 4.5 pound fish from the now devastated Caenarvaron area.
We are grateful that everyone in our club came through the storm safe and wish everyone even better luck in 2006.
