Graves County High School senior Matt Feagin (right) and his father, John Feagin, both Mayfield area residents, placed second as a team in the amateur division of the prestigious 2012 Cabela's/Crappie USA Classic held the last weekend of October on Kentucky and Barkley lakes at Lake Barkley State Resort Park near Cadiz. The Feagin Team’s overall catch weighed in at 19.51 pounds and earned the duo some $3,000. The Feagins said they were vertical jigging a main point in the Blood River area using Southern Pro orange/chartreuse and blue/chartreuse jigs in 11-18 feet of water to catch more than 100 fish during the two-day tournament. Harsh weather with temperatures dropping nearly 25 degrees, 15-25 m.p.h. winds and waves as high as four feet couldn't hold back the 171 teams from 18 states competing for the nearly $108,000 in cash and prizes. "This was truly one of the most memorable classics, even with inclement weather, in my 28 years of managing classic events," said Crappie USA CEO Darrell Van Vactor.
