Anglers from all over the country were on Table Rock Lake this weekend for the Costa Fishing League Tournament.

More than 250 competitors spent the week trying to catch the most fish in Table Rock Lake.

The final weigh-in was this afternoon, at the Branson Landing.

We caught up with the first place winner Scott Parsons.

He told us he’s been fishing since he was a child and has been competing for more than a decade.

” I’ve never won, I actually have got second twice, and I’ve tied for first, but this is a pretty good experience to have to get first place,” Parsons said. “I’ve had an awesome day all week. I’ve had more than 10 keepers each day, and you know I’ve had boaters that put me around them”

Parsons said he plans to trade the boat he won for an even bigger boat. His future plans are to compete professionally.
