Fred Farley spent his summers up north in a cottage on Stoney Lake. There, he often debated with his friends what type of bait was best to use for the fish in the waters. He decided one year to hold a fishing tournament with the best fishers on the lake, each using a different casting lure. 5 men competed (Fred Farley was NOT one of them) and points were awarded in four categories to determine a winner:

Greatest total Weight of fish caught: 4 points
Greatest Number of fish caught: 3 points
Largest Fish: 2 points
Second-largest fish: 1 point
Winning more than one category: 1 bonus point

Two fishermen did not win any of the categories and first place ended up being a tie between two men who received the same amount of points.

From the statements below, determine the first and last name of each of the contestants, what casting lure was used, and who won each category.

1. Mike (who was one of the category winners), Mr. Black (who is not Terry), and the one that used the plastic worm live near each other.

2. Vick, who did not win the total weight category, did not use the spinner bait; nor did Mr. McNess.

3. The one that used the weighted jig, who was not Terry, did not win any of the categories.

4. Neither Sam nor Mr. Larson live near any of the other three contestants, nor did either use a spinner bait or deep-running crank bait.

5. The fisherman who won the largest-fish category, who was not Mr. Smith, used spinner bait.

6. Mr. Jones, who caught the most fish, did not use a deep-running crank bait.

7. Both Mr. McNess (who did not use a deep running crank bait) and Terry (who did not use a plastic worm) had boat trouble and started after the others.

8. A wounded-minnow was used as one of the casting lures, and Kevin was one of the contestants.
