Peter “T” Thliveros, continuing along on the hottest two years of his career, won the Southern Open on the St. John’s River out of Palatka, Fla. on Saturday, February 19th, 2008 with an impressive three day total weight of 55 pounds, 3 ounces. The performance earned him a hefty check for $50, 657.
“I caught a lot of my fish on a Carolina rig. The key was my use of a black 5/8 ounce Peter “T” Finesse Carolina Weight coupled with a black Peter “T” Force Bead. There are a lot of Carolina weights around but they’re either too light or too heavy. The Tru-Tungsten 5/8 ounce is perfect, just the right weight to keep the rig down and under control,” said the successful BASS Elite Series angler.
