The First Annual Pitman Creek Cup held on October 17, 2015 was a huge success to say the least. “What better way to spend time with family than by spending a few hours doing what we all love, fishing,” stated John Carman, Sales Manager for Pitman Creek! “Our Dealers and Vendors are more than business partners, they are family”. This tournament had been a dream of John’s for several years.

The tournament was held on Lake Cumberland near the tributary (Pitman Creek) where the company gets its name. Blast off was at General Burnside Island State Park’s boat ramp ten minutes from the convention center where Pitman Creek Wholesale holds their Annual Fall Dealer Show which began he next day.

Pitman Creek paired up Dealers with Manufacturers. By pairing this way the dealers were able to network with manufacturers. Manufacturers were provided a rare opportunity to show case their products one-on-one with dealers.

The tournament start was delayed due to fog, but it didn’t damper the excitement. The delay provided a great opportunity for professional angler, Wally Marshall to provide plenty of pre-tournament entertainment. Blast off was at 9:00 AM and weigh-in was at 2:00 PM. A cold front moved through making the fishing difficult, but over half of the field had fish to weigh.

John Meyer (Backwater Outfitters) and Chris Lane (Luck E Strike) took first place with 5.15 pounds. In Second place was Rob Hewett (Zeigler Outdoors) and Crispin Powley (Strike King) with 4.81 pounds. And Third place went to Bobby Matt (Tackle Service Center) and Walt Roberts (Duckett Fishing) with 4.18 pounds. Greg Osborne (Rock House Marina) earned Big fish honors with a 3.12 pound smallmouth. After the weigh-in, everyone was treated to lunch provided by Denali Rods. Lunch was cooked and served by Pitman Creek’s employees.
