when he fished with his “Papaw” Spurlock.Charlie fished the FLW Wal-Mart
Bass Fishing League where he won first place in one of the tournaments on
the Texas Tournament Trail. He also took first place in the Texas Oilman’s
Tournament and the Louisiana Oilman’s Tournament. He and Harley Wilson also
won a boat at the Toledo Bend Classic tournament. Charlie was also a member
of the Carthage Bass Fishing League. He particularly loved the fishing
trips with his friends to Lake Falcon in South Texas on the Texas – Mexico
border. His plans were to eventually travel to Brazil to fish for Peacock
Bass.
 
The Charlie Woods Memorial Scholarship was established four years ago by
his friends and family to help sophomore students enrolling in Panola
College’s petroleum technology program.Scholarship funds are raised through
the annual Charlie Woods Memorial Fishing Tournament held on Toledo Bend
each May.
