​How it Happened: 
Coffing and McCauley secured their first win on the R&B Circuit and second money finish of the season.  The two started on the main lake and fished one backwater area throughout the event.  They battled waves and wake for most of the day to land more than 10 keepers and bring the only limit to the scales.  The victory also moves the team into second place in the points standings with only two events to go.
