Skeet Reese beats Mike Iaconelli to win the 2009 Classic

Pro Bass angler Skeet Reese had a tough 2nd place finish two years ago at the Classic losing by only 6oz. but all of that is history with Skeet's win just minutes ago at the 2009 Classic on the Red River, Shreveport, LA. The California pro was able to hold off Iaconelli's charge, and in the end beat Iaconelli by only 11 ounces to win the big one.  

Today while fishing Skeet commented that he knew it was going to be tight and was doing math in his head to see where he would end up, he never knew just how close it would be until the final weigh in when he realized he clinched the win with 16.12oz for the day and jumped up and turned to hug Iaconelli. 

Skeet Reese edges out Mike Iaconelli with 11oz. to win his first Classic title

Skeet finished with a total weight of 54.13oz. while second place finisher Mike Iaconelli finished with 54.2oz. and third place finisher Brian Snowden concluded the tournament with 52.14oz. Prior to day three Jami Fralick was leading the tournament with a weight of 38.9oz., it was on the second day when Skeet charged up the leaderboard into second place.

With the Classic Win Skeet now has the one win that has eluded him since the 2007 Classic loss to Boyd Duckett, and is now among the elite professional anglers in the world.
