Boater Danny Haire of Yadkinville, N.C., won the March 1 BFL Shenandoah Division tournament on Kerr Lake to earn $3,823.

HENDERSON, N.C. - Boater Danny Haire of Yadkinville, N.C., won the Wal-Mart Bass Fishing League Shenandoah Division tournament on Kerr Lake Saturday with a five-bass catch weighing 17 pounds, 8 ounces. The victory earned Haire $3,823 and placed him one step closer to qualifying for the Albemarle Sound Regional Championship in Elizabeth City, N.C., Oct. 9-11, where he could ultimately win a new 198VX Ranger boat and a Chevy truck.

Haire caught his bass Carolina rigging a jerkbait.

Rounding out the top five boaters are Rodney Sorrell of Stokesdale, N.C. (five bass, 17-4, $2,249); Chris Bullock of Fountain, N.C. (four bass, 14-15, $1,498); Mike Altizer of Vinton, Va. (five bass, 14-12, $1,050) and Tony Woodard of Four Oaks, N.C. (five bass, 14-6, $900).

David Perdue of Wirtz, Va. took home the Boater Division Snickers Big Bass award, earning $645 for a 6-pound, 8-ounce bass he caught on a Rapala Shad Rap.

Roger Longwell of Lostcreek, W.Va., earned $2,214 as the co-angler winner Saturday thanks to five bass weighing 13 pounds, 8 ounces that he caught on a Rapala Husky Jerk.

Rounding out the top five co-anglers are Doug Larson of Suffolk, Va. (three bass, 9-12, $1,107); Jim Stephenson of Stuarts Draft, Va. (three bass, 8-8, $738); Daniel Mox of Glen Burnie, Md. (four bass, 8-6, $517) and John Chandler of Lovettsville, Va. (three bass, 8-2, $443).

Stephenson earned $317 as the co-angler Big Bass winner after catching a 5-pound, 7-ounce bass he caught on a Lucky Craft Shad Rap.

Shenandoah Division anglers will visit Smith Mountain Lake in Moneta, Va., April 5 for their second regular-season event, followed by an event on the Potomac River in Woodbridge, Va., May 17. The division's fourth qualifying event will be held on the James River in Richmond, Va., June 21. A two-day Super Tournament, the division's fifth and final event, will be held on the Potomac River in Woodbridge, Va., Sept. 13-14.

Following the end of regular-season competition, the top 40 boaters and 40 co-anglers based on year-end points standings in the division will advance to the no-entry-fee Albemarle Sound Regional Championship where they will compete against top qualifiers from three other BFL divisions. At the Regional Championship boaters will fish for a new Ranger boat and Chevy truck and co-anglers will fish for a new Ranger boat. The top six boaters and top six co-anglers at the Regional Championship will also advance to the All-American presented by Chevy. With a total purse of $1 million, a potential $140,000 cash prize going to the winning boater and as much as $70,000 going to the winning co-angler, the All-American is one of the most prestigious and lucrative events in bass fishing. The winning boater and winning co-angler at the All-American also advance to the no-entry-fee $2 million Forrest Wood Cup. This event, featuring a top award of $1 million, is the sport's biggest championship.
