The 2004 FLW Tour event on the Atchafalaya Basin was the sole victory in Louisiana pro Sam Swett’s FLW career and accounted for $100,000 of his $173,415 in FLW Outdoors winnings. It was a low-weigh event in which it only took 23-03 over two days to make the cut to Day Three, and a mere 11-15 (four fish over two days) to claim the 75th place check.
Swett certainly remembers his home state win, where he used his knowledge of tides and a clear water bayou near the Gulf of Mexico to outlast his competitors, but the tournament was historically significant for another reason.
Do you remember why?
