Team Cepek Hits the Water
Dick Cepek Tires & Wheels’ winning lineup of anglers competing in the 2018 Bassmaster Elite Series hit the water for the first event of the season earlier this month, and Team Dick Cepek’s Justin Lucas finished strong in sixth place with a 50-pound, 5-ounce total weigh-in.
It’s a solid start to what is anticipated to be an impressive season for the Team Dick Cepek Elite Anglers.
