Joe Fowler was a double winner despite fishing alone at Saturday’s 20th annual Greer Family Fest Bass Fishing Tournament.

The first place haul of 15.3 pounds earned the $1,000 first prize. His biggest catch, weighing 6.2 pounds, earned the top catch.

Jaiden Redd, a first grader at Crestview Elementary, fished with his father, Matt, and teamed for second place, at 11 pounds, 8 ounces. Jaiden caught three of the five-fish haul.

Jaiden has Hypogammaglobulinemia, a type of primary immune deficiency disease, and wears with a striped ribbon on his fishing shirts, to bring attention to his disease. His brother also has the trait.

The Danny Cooper and Chris Nichols team finished third with an 11.56 catch.
