Terry Wins EverStart Series Texas Division Event On Lake Amistad

Austin Terry caught his fish on a squarebill crankbait and a swim jig.

DEL RIO, Texas - Austin Terry of San Angelo, Texas, weighed a five-bass limit totaling 13 pounds, 13 ounces Saturday to win the EverStart Series Texas Division event on Lake Amistad with a three-day total of 15 bass weighing 59 pounds, 13 ounces. For his victory, Terry earned $34,915.

"I had a much tougher day out there today," said Terry, who earned his first career victory in FLW competition. "The fish that I was catching all week were turning on late - once the sun came out. Today, that never happened."

Throughout the tournament Terry would began his mornings throwing a sexy shad-colored Fury F-4 Phantom Squarebill. As the day progressed and the sun came out, he would move to a bluegill-colored Revenge swim jig or a shad-colored Jerry Rago swimbait. Today, Terry had to scratch out a limit throwing solely a white Revenge Baits swim jig.

"I still managed to catch around 10 fish today," Terry continued. "The bite definitely wasn't as good as yesterday, though.

"The majority of my fishing time was spent in areas that I found in practice, near the Mexico side," Terry said. "I would fish the coves and target the drains and points. The fish were coming out of the backs of the drains. They were in the grass, about 1 to 2 feet deep. They were smaller areas, but I had 40 to 50 spots that I was hitting. It was huge to get the big bag right away on the first day, because it allowed me to go looking and find those fish."

Terry has had success on Lake Amistad with FLW in the past - he finished in ninth place in 2012 in EverStart Series competition. Terry is fishing this season as a rookie on the FLW Tour, and said that this win will be a huge advantage for him heading into the first event of the season at Lake Okeechobee.

"I'm sure that it will really take a few days for this win to sink in," Terry said. "It's definitely going to be a big help heading into the Tour event at Okeechobee in two weeks. I can fish a little more relaxed now, and it won't be as stressful. I've always been comfortable fishing shallow, grassy lakes and I love to flip and pitch. It looks like we're going to be hitting the spawn there at just the right time, and I'm sure it's going to be a lot of fun."

1st: Austin Terry, San Angelo, Texas, 15 bass, 59-3, $34,915
