What a Weekend for Rowsey!
The Troutmasters Tournament Series held the final event for the 2007 season in beautiful Corpus Christi, TX. Local fishing guide, David Rowsey, took home the first place prize of $10,000 with a total weight of 11.85 lbs. Coming into the final event of the year, Rowsey was in 7th place and 19 points behind Angler of the Year leader, Michael Vacek. Winning the final tournament of the year gave Rowsey the points he needed to secure his Angler of the Year win. Not only did Rowsey take home the first place prize of $10,000, he also won a 22' Triton LTS powered by Mercury valued at nearly $30,000 for his Angler of the Year title. After his exciting wins, Rowsey still had one promise that he made to himself left to fulfill. While still on the Troutmasters stage in front of all his friends and fellow anglers Rowsey proposed to his longtime girlfriend Sally Cavazos. Congratulations David Rowsey and Sally Cavazos from the entire Troutmasters Team.
Although the Corpus Christi tournament was the last event of the season it was by far not the least. With anglers Eddie Brown winning Big Trout with the biggest trout of the season at 7.09 lbs and Benjamin Butcher winning Heaviest Live Stringer with an even 9 lbs, the lower Texas coast did not disappoint. It has been a great year for the Troutmasters Tournament Series with a lot of positive feedback from anglers and fans. We are looking forward to an even bigger and better season for next year and would like to thank all of our sponsors and everyone else that helped make it possible.
