The 10th Annual Adger Classic Fishing Tournament was held in May. The annual classic is sponsored by Kimbrel’s Grocery. James Kimbrel, the owner of Kimbrel’s Grocery, said, “It’s hard to believe that we have been doing this for 10 years. “We began this tournament as a way to say Thank You to all of our customers, but my family & I are the ones who walk away with a more thankful perspective. The amount of support we receive from start to finish is amazing.”
Seventy-three boats participated in this year’s tournament. “We have people that schedule their vacation days off from work, to help with this little tournament. We could not do what we do without them,” stated Kimbrel
The tournament launched out of Smith’s Camp with everyone meeting back at The Jones Family Cabin to weigh in their catch & talk about the one that got away while eating a plate of BBQ. All of the boaters received a custom t-shirt & their names placed in a drawing for prizes, everyone won something. 1st through 3rd place winners received a Hand Carved Wooden Plaque. 1st place Men’s & Ladies Big Fish took home Front Porch Rockers. 1st through 12th places took home cash.
