Step into the world of fishing fervor as we dive into the thrilling recap of Major League Fishing's REDCREST 2024! The arena was set, the anglers were geared, and the waters of Lay Lake brimmed with anticipation as fishing aficionados from around the globe tuned in to witness the spectacle unfold.

In a display of sheer prowess and determination, TeamGT Fishing's Alton Jones Jr. soared to yet another runner-up finish at REDCREST, cementing his position as a force to be reckoned with in the Major League Fishing, Bass Pro Tour. With a remarkable haul of nineteen bass, totaling a whopping 52 pounds 2 ounces, Jones Jr. clinched second place, falling just shy of the championship glory that Dustin Connell claimed on the exhilarating championship day.
