Hallman, Rea win Last Bass tourney

Bradley Hallman of Norman and Larry Rea of Eufaula teamed up to win the annual Lawter & Associates “The Last Bass” tournament on Nov. 11 at Lake Eufaula.

Aber and Bean received $4,128 for second place but also captured overall big bass honors with a 7.4-pound bass that earned them an additional $7,040.

Finishing third was Phillip and Kala Wright of Spiro, who weighed in 13.30 pounds and won $2,064.

The tournament attracted 352 two-person teams and had a total payout of $56,800.
