Boater Kevin Lasater of McKenzie, Tenn., earned $5,024 June 24 as winner of the BFL LBL Division event on Kentucky and Barkley lakes.

AURORA, Ky. - Boater Kevin Lasater of McKenzie, Tenn., earned $5,024 Saturday as winner of the Wal-Mart Bass Fishing League LBL Division event on Kentucky and Barkley lakes. The tournament was the fourth of five regular-season LBL Division events and earned Lasater 200 points in the Boater Division.

Lasater's winning catch of five bass weighed 19 pounds, 9 ounces. He was fishing ledges on the south end of Kentucky Lake, throwing a Carolina-rig to catch his bass.

Rounding out the top five boaters are Scott Brummett of Brentwood, Tenn. (five bass, 19 pounds, 3 ounces, $2,512); Billy Schroeder of Paducah, Ky. (five bass, 18 pounds, 10 ounces, $1,674); Roger Walters of Madisonville, Ky. (five bass, 16 pounds, 7 ounces, $1,172); and Larry Frasier of Owensboro, Ky. (five bass, 16 pounds, 2 ounces, $1,005).

Brummett also took home an additional $500 for being the highest placing Ranger Cup participant.

Joe White of Princeton, Ky., took Boater Division big-bass award honors, earning $775 for a 7-pound, 1-ounce bass he caught on a junebug worm.

Gary Cole of Sebree, Ky., won the Co-angler Division to earn $2,512 thanks to five bass weighing 16 pounds, 2 ounces that he caught dragging a 1/2-ounce black and blue jig on Lake Barkley. Cole also took home an additional $387 for winning the Co-angler Division big bass award with a 6-pound, 3-ounce bass.

Rounding out the top five co-anglers are Kirk Holland of Arlington, Ky. (five bass, 14 pounds, 1 ounces, $1,256); Cory York of Benton, Ky. (five bass, 13 pounds, 9 ounces, $838); Jason Housman of Hardin, Ky. (five bass, 13 pounds, 8 ounces, $586); and Barry Mohon of Beechmont, Ky. (three bass, 13 pounds, 6 ounces, $502).

The LBL Division's next event will be a two-day Super Tournament Sept. 16-17 on Kentucky and Barkley lakes near Gilbertsville, Ky.

Following the regular season, the LBL Division boater with the most points who advances farthest in the Wal-Mart BFL All-American will earn $10,000 as the Yamaha "Be the Best" points champion. The co-angler points champion who advances farthest will earn $5,000 as the Yamaha "Be the Best" points champion in the Co-angler Division.

Every angler who receives weight credit in a tournament earns points, with 200 points going to the winner, 199 for second, 198 for third, and so on except for Super Tournaments, which award 300 points to the winner, 299 for second, 298 for third, and so on. The top 40 LBL Division boaters and co-anglers based on year-end points standings will advance to the Lake Chickamauga Regional near Hixson, Tenn., Oct. 12-14, where they will compete against Bulldog, Dixie and Music City anglers for one of six slots in the 2007 All-American. With a total purse of $1 million and a potential $140,000 cash prize going to the winning boater and $70,000 going to the winning co-angler, the All-American is one of the most prestigious and lucrative events in bass fishing.

The $8.8 million Wal-Mart Bass Fishing League features 28 divisions nationwide. In BFL competition, boaters and co-anglers are randomly paired, with boaters supplying the boat and fishing against other boaters and co-anglers fishing from the back deck against other co-anglers.
