Matt King of Olathe, Kansas came from being down by nearly 10 lbs down!  To win the individual overall division champions title in the 2010 Central Division Championship Tournament Presented by Evinrude E-TEC.

King weighed in a monster sack of 21 lbs 4 oz today and was the largest stringer of the entire tournament, by far. What a comeback! The only one close to that weight was his draw partner today, Don Heiser of MO, who caught 16 lbs 5 oz. in the same boat. King earned himself another trip to the TBF Federation Championship. “I changed it up a little bit and felt like I burned my fish the first 2 days. Today, I went out and fished the areas on this lake that I generally fish in the late spring and early summer, where fish should be this time of year,” King said. He was fishing the ledges in about 15-25’ of water and caught most of his fish on a Carolina Rig using a Brush Hog and a 6” lizard.
