Jason Harper and Chris Jones sit down with FLW Tour Grand Lake champion Jason Christie as well as top-10 finalists Bryan Thrift, Andy Morgan, and Jimmy Houston after final weigh-in. During the podcast the group breaks down the Grand Lake contest as well as the AOY race and other topics.
GROVE, Okla. - Simply put, Jason Christie of Park Hill, Okla., owned Grand Lake O' the Cherokees this week. After leading the fifth FLW Tour event of the 2013 season for the first three days, Christie turned on the afterburners on day four, landing the biggest stringer of the day at 19 pounds, 13 ounces en route to a rather comfortable 5-pound, 5-ounce margin of victory. As a result of Christie's four-day catch of 78 pounds, 1 ounce, the Oklahoma native took home the top prize of $125,000.

GROVE, Okla. - For the first time all tournament, Rayovac team pro Jason Christie of Park Hill, Okla., didn't catch the biggest stringer of the day. But then again, it didn't much matter. Not only did Christie's total, three-day stringer weighing 58 pounds, 4 ounces, keep him in the overall lead for a third consecutive day, but he actually upped his margin over his next closest competitor to 3 pounds, 8 ounces.
GROVE, Okla. - With three FLW titles already under his belt, Keith Honeycutt of Temple, Texas, was hoping to add a fourth. And today, he got his wish. Buoyed by a three-day catch of 45 pounds, 13 ounces, Honeycutt finished today's weigh-in in exactly the same place he found himself after days one and two, in first place overall.
