A father and son duo won the Selma City Open Bass Tournament last weekend on the Selma Marina.

The team of Mark and Justin Mott took first place and won a prize of $1,500, catching 16.57 pounds of bass.

“I love to fish with my dad, it’s even better when we are fortunate enough to win,” Justin Mott said. “This was a great event and I really enjoyed getting to see some friends that I haven’t seen in a long time.”

Chris Cook finished second and won a prize of $800. Anderson Casey and Travis Day won $400 for finishing third.

Wes and Gage King won $200 for the Lunker pot.

Tournament Director Jeremy Bass said 19 boats competed in the daylong event on Jan. 23 that featured local anglers. Some anglers fished solo, while others were duos.
