LAKE DARDANELLE, Ark. -- The Bootheel BassBusters held their final tournament of the year, a two-day event, on October 27th and 28th on Lake Dardanelle in Arkansas.

Ty Garrett won the tournament with a two-day total of 12 lbs. 10 oz. Mitch Allen was second with 10 lbs. 4 oz. and Harold Bays was third with 8 lbs. 4 oz.

Mitch Allen took big bass honors on Friday with a 3 lb. 7 oz. fish and Huston Fields had the second largest bass, a 2 lb. 13 oz. fish.

Ty Garrett took big bass honors on Saturday with a 4 lb. 15 oz. fish, and Huston Fields again took the second largest bass, a 4 lb. 1 oz. largemouth.

Weather conditions were very unstable during the tournament which caused constant adjustments among the fishermen to catch the fish.

Mitch Allen won the 2006 Angler-of-the-Year title with 1,536 points. Ty Garrett took second place honors with 1,515 points and Mike Estes was third with 1,310 points.
