Anderson sacks 'em on Kentucky/Barkley lakes
Brent Anderson of Kingston Springs, Tenn., won the Sept. 21-22 LBL Division Super Tournament on Kentucky/Barkley lakes with a two-day total of 43 pounds, 9 ounces. Anderson earned more than $5,500 for his efforts.

GILBERTSVILLE, Ky. - Brent Anderson of Kingston Springs, Tenn., weighed in a two-day total of 10 bass for 43 pounds, 9 ounces Sunday to win the Walmart Bass Fishing League LBL Division Super Tournament on Kentucky and Barkley lakes. For his victory, Anderson earned $5,517.

Anderson parlayed a massive day of topwater action coupled with an intimate knowledge of the lake's famous ledges into a blowout win on Kentucky Lake.

"I had found about nine places that were holding big 5- to 8-pound fish," said Anderson. "The first day the wind trashed all but two of my places. It was a slow bite, but I stayed with it and ended up catching five good ones on a Strike King KVD Sexy Dawg.

"I was targeting main-lake flats and bars," continued Anderson. "The fish were in about 3 feet of water. I had about 34 pounds the day before. I was actually disappointed on the first day. In practice, small ones were 5-pounders and big ones were 8-pounders.

"Going into the second day with the wind laying down, I really thought I could catch them good," said Anderson. "In the first hour my co-angler caught a 5 (pounder) and I lost a 5-pound smallmouth, but I hadn't had another bite by 10 a.m.

"I didn't want to abandon the topwater pattern because I had caught so many big fish on it in practice and the tournament. But I noticed the current was ripping, and that gave me the confidence to switch to ledges because I knew the fish would be grouped up and feeding.

"The biggest key catching fish the first day were my Power-Poles," said Anderson. "There were 3-foot waves, and I was fishing in 3 feet of water, and they let me really pick the area apart.

"This win means more to me than any of the others," continued Anderson. "I've had the fish to win six or seven others, and for a while it seemed like it was never going to happen again."

Anderson said he used a Strike King KVD Sexy Dawg, a ¾-ounce Strike King Spinnerbait and a Strike King Shadalicious swimbait on a ¾-ounce jig head.

2nd: Craig Hipsher, Benton, Ky., 10 bass, 33-14, $2,759
