Top 10 Patterns from Lake Dardanelle

Jason Lieblong, who won the Rayovac FLW Series Central Division event on Lake Dardanelle, devoted most of his time to fishing reed lines with a mix of chatterbaits, frogs and Texas-rigged worms. He also caught fish by dragging a Texas-rigged 10-inch worm past brush piles in 6-8 feet. Lieblong amassed a three-day total of 46 pound, 3 ounces. READ MORE »

Top 10 Patterns from Lake Champlain

Glenn Browne basically lapped the field last week in the Rayovac FLW Series event presented by Plano on Lake Champlain by fishing a jig on the bank down by Ticonderoga. He won by almost a 10-pound margin over second place. The rest of the top 10 caught fish from Missisquoi to Ti – or far north to far south – and sampled about every kind of fishing that Champlain has to offer. READ MORE »

Top 10 Photos from Potomac River

As a result of the varied scenery on the Potomac, which includes the all-natural and the metropolitan, FLW’s media team was able to capture quite an interesting collection of photos at the finale. The crew even managed to make it out without raising suspicions from any government agencies pulling security details along the upper stretches of the Potomac near Washington, D.C. At least, we’re not on any watch lists that we know of. READ MORE »

Top 10 Patterns from Lake Chickamauga

Considering the complexity of catching summertime bass on highly pressured Tennessee River impoundments, Michael Wooley’s winning baits at the Walmart FLW Tour event presented by Igloo Coolers on Lake Chickamauga were pretty simplistic. His win came on a Zoom Magnum Trick Worm fished on a 1/2-ounce hand-poured shaky head with a 5/0 hook as well as a 3/4-ounce Strike King football jig teamed with a Rage Lobster. Both lures were fished on 17-pound-test Seaguar fluorocarbon. Wooley dragged his baits on a shell bed in about 13 feet of water that dropped off to a channel some 20 feet deep. Here is a look at some of the other patterns that were working at Lake Chickamauga. READ MORE »
