Duckett finishes 12th in Classic

Demopolis angler Boyd Duckett, with 47 pounds, 8 ounces of bass, finished 12th in the 2009 Bassmaster Classic which held its final weigh-in Sunday night. Duckett was the leader after day one but slid to ninth after day two Saturday. Duckett’s purse was $14,500.

Skeet Reese of Auburn, Calif., held off a rally from former champion Michael Iaconelli to win his first Bassmaster Classic on Sunday.

Reese, who trailed leader Jami Fralick by 8 ounces entering the final day, bagged a limit of five bass weighing 16 pounds, 12 ounces from the Red River in northwest Louisiana and edged hard-charging Iaconelli by 11 ounces in the three-day event.

In his 10th classic appearance, Reese compiled a total of 54 pounds, 13 ounces of bass.

His $500,000 payday was made official in front of a packed house at the CenturyTel Center and helped him move to the brink of $2 million in career earnings.
