Nov 06, 2017
Charlie and Chester Craycraft win at Barkley.

The 2017 edition of the Director's Classic was held on Barkley Lake in Kentucky and featured 17 teams. USA Bassin National Director Kevin Yeary was on hand for the event and said this is a way to give back to the directors. "We appreciate all of their hard work during the season and this is my way of saying thank you," he said. Tim Mills served as the tournament director for the event.

Taking first was Charlie and Chester Craycraft. They weighed in 16.34lbs and took home $3,000 for their win. "The first day of practice we blanked and then on the second day we found a little pattern," the began. "We were cranking transition areas in Barkley and in Kentucky Lake and caught seven keepers all day." They also had the day's biggest bass, a 5.80lb fish.

The Craycrafts run the Guist Creek Divisions in Shelbyville, KY and were happy to have the opportunity to compete against fellow directors. "This is our third year fishing this tournament and it is nice to be able to spend time with the other directors. We appreciate the opportunity to be involved with USA Bassin and are grateful for the Lord blessing us to be involved with bass fishing," added Chester.

Thank you to all who participated and thanks again for your hard work during the season.
