Globe resident, Andy Bravence, holds up his catch at the 2012 Bass Federation National Championship at Wheeler Lake, Ingalls Harbor, in Decatur, Ala. held Oct. 25-27. This was his third championship.

Decatur, Alabama — Globe resident Andy Bravence recently placed 10th overall, and was the top angler from the Western states, at the 2012 Cabela’s Bassmaster Federation Nation Championship held at Wheeler Lake in Decatur, Ala. Bravence placed 10th out of a total 56 anglers who qualified nationwide with an accumulative 15 fish bringing 32 pounds, 1 ounce on the scales.

By the end of day one of the tournament, Bravence was in 22nd place; on day two, he was able to move up a few spots to 19th. A strong finish on day three bumped him up to 10th place overall.

Bravence qualified for the national competition at the end of May at the Western Divisionals held at Flaming Gorge in Green River, Wyo. which was held from May 30 through June 1. There, Bravence placed second overall, after finishing the first two days in fourth. On day three, Bravence brought in an accumulative 14 fish for 32 pounds, six ounces. The second place finish (out of 151 anglers from Wyoming, Oregon, California, Idaho, Utah, Montana, Colorado, Nevada, Georgia, Washington, New Mexico, Texas, and Arizona) qualified him for the national tournament.

When not fishing the lakes, Bravence is an underground mine superintendent. He is a member of the Del Norte Bass Anglers and is sponsored by M&S Marine, Bellamark Realty, and Team Lynette.
