Fulton native Joseph Webster wrapped up the Fishing League Worldwide Tour two weeks ago at Lake Champlain in New York with a solid third place finish in the season-long points race.

The placement qualified Webster for the FLW Cup Tournament for the fourth time. .

The third place finish was a career best for the angler, who competed everywhere from New York to Texas to Florida. The high finish was directly related to Webster’s steady fishing in a year where he finished in the top 25 in more than half of the events he competed in, highlighted by a seventh place finish at Florida’s Lake Toho in February.

Webster wrapped up the season with 85 bass caught and a total of 1,221 points earned.

Lynchburg, Virginia native David Dudley topped the tournament with a total of 1,250 points earned and 106 bass caught. John Cox of Debary, Florida, came in second with 1,230 points and 100 bass.

Webster’s season will wrap up at Lake Hamilton in Hot Springs, Arkansas, next month at the FLW Cup.
