Movers & Shakers: Lady Bass Classic Fallout


A championship is always a great place to get your first career victory. That’s exactly what Debbie Warner found out over the weekend.

Having fished the LBAA since 2010, Warner had never finished higher than fourth in a tournament. That all changed during the LBAA Lady Bass Classic on Lake Ray Hubbard. Warner was able to outlast Pam Martin-Wells to take the crown.

In the process, Warner climbed to No. 9 in the Women’s Ranking. Meanwhile, Martin-Wells also climbed a little closer to taking back her No. 1 spot.



Randall Tharp won the BASS Central Open on Ross Barnett over the weekend. While the win was noteworthy for him in the present, it may be even more noteworthy in the future. That victory qualified him for the Bassmaster Classic, which just so happens to be on his home waters of Guntersville.

The Honey Badger has a shot at taking both Major titles.
