It’s one of the biggest bass-fishing tournaments in the nation — BFL’s All-American. Kip Carter from Oxford finished third at this year’s All-American, an accomplishment that’s a really big deal.

This year’s All-American took place July 6-8 on the Connecticut River.
Family and friends joined Kip each day at the weigh-ins. The Carter clan were on pins and needles after the day-two weigh-in when learning Kip was in first place! He had a 6-oz. lead over Robert Walser from Lexington N.C.

On day three, the final day of the tournament, Kip only managed 7-lbs, 2-ozs., his lowest sack for the event, which allowed Robert to win the event. Still… third-place at an All-American is incredible!

GON did a Sinclair article with Kip in August 2004. Kip is No. 18 in GON’s Individual Power Rankings list. He’s currently No. 2 in points for the 2006 Bulldog season. Look for Kip to fish the regional tournament at Lake Chickamauga in October, where he’ll try qualifying for next year’s All-American.

“I’ll fish for a living one day,” Kip said on the FLW website. “I’m young; my time’s coming.”
