Jordan Wins EverStart Series Western Division Event On Clear Lake

Jordan Wins EverStart Series Western Division Event On Clear Lake
EverStart Series

- Jody Jordan of Vacaville, Calif., weighed a five-bass limit totaling 28 pounds, 10 ounces Saturday to win the EverStart Series Western Division event presented by Mercury Marine on Clear Lake with a three-day total of 15 bass weighing 81 pounds, 1 ounce. For his victory, Jordan earned $28,958 and a Ranger Z518 with a 200-horsepower Evinrude or Mercury outboard motor.

Jordan used a pet swimbait and an intimate knowledge of Clear Lake to sack 28 pounds on back-to-back days and win by a mere 2 ounces.

"The first day I started deep cranking, and my first couple of spots didn't pan out," said Jordan. "Maybe four or five hours into the tournament I only had two fish. My plan was to run deep shade, but I was getting a little spun out.

"I was catching 24 pounds per day in practice before the event, so I moved to a big-fish spot I've known for years and caught a 5 (pounder). Then, I went around the corner on the same spot and caught a 6. Everything went from really bad to really good in a couple of minutes.

"I was looking for steep walls that kept the shade on them the longest," explained Jordan. "As the afternoon wore on the big fish started to bite as the shade started to take over.

"About halfway through day two I picked up a swimbait and I caught a 7-pounder on it," continued Jordan. "On day three I started with a swimbait. I had a limit by noon, and around 12:30 I stuck a 7 and then a 5 to get rid of my last small fish."

Jordan said that he was fishing about 15 to 20 feet deep on the south end of the lake. "I was was fishing an area that was maybe 150 yards long and rotating between two key spots on that bank.

"My swimbait was a 7-year-old Huddleston," said Jordan. "I only throw it in tournaments. I named it "Berry" because I caught my personal best, a 14-pounder, in a tournament on Lake Berryessa with it. It's destroyed. I use permanent marker to cover up the white spots. I'm pretty sure I'm going to get that bait framed.

"I fished an EverStart here last year and didn't do very well, so I wanted some revenge on the lake," finished Jordan. "It's incredible to win. I'm numb."

Jordan said he caught his fish on a Lucky Craft LV 500, a custom-colored Strike King 10XD and an 8-inch Huddleston swimbait.
