LAKE WYLIE, S.C. – The final standings for the Walmart Bass Fishing League North Carolina Division event on Lake Wylie have been updated because of a disqualification.
Boater John Hoyle of Rutherfordton, N.C., who finished Saturday’s competition in third place, was disqualified for violation of BFL rule No. 9 Sportsmanship after an 11-ounce weight was found in the stomach of one of the fish he weighed in Saturday’s competition. Hoyle’s tournament winnings were forfeited and fourth through 11th place moved up one spot in the tournament’s final standings.
Hoyle will not be permitted entry into any future FLW tournaments.
