EVART -- They live in Osceola County but two Evart fishermen more than held their own in competition that focus mostly on Mecosta County waters this summer.
Derrick Ransom and Jake Erickson of Evart won with a total score of 58.98 pounds to win the Castaways Bass Fishing Angler of the Year award. They’ve fished and hunted together for several years and it’s their first year in the club. Both have enjoyed being with the group. They were honored after the club’s last summer tourney in Aug. 18 at Hardy Pond.
