Monticello, Indiana and Lake Shafer was the site for the ninth qualifying event of the NATIONAL BOAT MART - TVA Bass Series.
In second place was Burnettsville, Indiana's Jerry Drazer. Drazer managed to scrape up three keeper bass weighing in at 6.38 pounds, for his second place finish. Drazer credited using Kick-N-BassŪ Anise Shad scent, for giving him the bites he needed on such a tough day. "When it gets really tough like today, you need to use scent a lot on your baits, one bite can make a big difference". A big difference it made for Drazer, Jerry only had two bass with just minutes to go and put his third keeper in the boat with minutes to spare. That third keeper gave him the repeat win as the 2002 NATIONAL BOAT MART - TVA Bass Series Angler-of-the-Year by a mere 2 points. Jerry Drazer is sponsored by Papa Johns Pizza, Computers Plus, Kick-N-Bass Scents, Ambush Lures, Kick-N-Bass Wash-N-Wax, Equalizer Baits, and Mid-West Auto-Trim.
