Daniels Jr. Wins Rayovac FLW Series Western Division Event On The California Delta

Rayovac FLW Series

BETHEL ISLAND, Calif. - Mark Daniels Jr. of Fairfield, Calif., weighed a five-bass limit totaling 26 pounds, 12 ounces Saturday to win the Rayovac FLW Series Western Division event on the California Delta presented by Mercury with a three-day total of 15 bass weighing 72 pounds, 7 ounces. For his victory, Daniels Jr. earned $38,664.

"I'm just speechless," said the reigning TBF National Champion on stage immediately after finding out he had secured the win. "Looking out in the crowd, there are so many people here who supported me. It's great to get home and relax and get a win in this tournament.

"I came home to surprise my mom and I hooked up with a couple of my buddies. We went out fishing and had a really good day," said Daniels Jr. "We caught a really good fish that I posted on Instagram, and that gave me an idea of what I could do to win the tournament. I made up my mind and signed up for the tournament the next day.

"I was targeting pre-spawn fish," Daniels Jr. explained. "I was targeting fish that wanted to actually bite. I don't like looking at them on beds. There are so many different ways you can catch them pre-spawn on the Delta. That was the way to go.

"Today, I didn't have any really big ones," said Daniels Jr. "I had some six-pounders, though. I started out throwing topwaters and I was just catching small fish. Around 8 o'clock in the morning I swapped over and started flipping and immediately caught a four-pounder. After that I pretty much locked that rod in my hand the whole day."

Daniels Jr. said he caught most of his fish on a white-colored River2Sea Bully Wa Frog, a black-colored D&M Custom Baits Slow Roller Buzzbait, a Yamamoto Senko and an undisclosed beaver-style bait.

The top 10 pros on the California Delta were:

1st: Mark Daniels Jr., Fairfield, Calif., 15 bass, 72-7, $38,664
