Pro bass an­gler and Chicka­mauga res­i­dent Buddy Gross fin­ished ninth over­all at the Costa FLW Se­ries South­east­ern Di­vi­sion Fi­nale on San­tee Cooper Lakes in Sum­mer­ton, S.C. over the week­end.

Gross fin­ished with 14 bass to­tal­ing 54 pounds, 9 ounces over the three-day tour­na­ment.

He turned in five bass weigh­ing 25-11 on the first day, but his haul dropped to 15-14 on the sec­ond day and 13-0 in the fi­nal round as he weighed in just four bass. He took home $5,800 for his ef­forts.

Ron­nie McCoy of La­mar, S.C. won the tour­na­ment with 15 bass weigh­ing in at 73-8 to take home $93,500.

Gross is 11th in the points stand­ings ($10,040) and has qual­i­fied for the Costa FLW Se­ries Cham­pi­onship, which will be held Nov, 1-3 at Lake Gun­tersville in Alabama.

Now in his third year as a pro, Gross has three ca­reer tour­na­ment wins and nine ca­reer top 10 fin­ishes with ca­reer earn­ings of nearly $250,000.
