Webb's Trio Tops at Guntersville

Chris Webb of Decatur, Ala., won the Feb. 7 Choo Choo Division event on Lake Guntersville with a 28-pound, 8-ounce limit that earned him a $6,000 top prize.

SCOTTSBORO, Ala. – Chris Webb of Decatur, Alabama, weighed a five-bass limit totaling 28 pounds, 8 ounces Saturday to win the first Walmart Bass Fishing League Choo Choo Division tournament of 2015 on Lake Guntersville. For his victory, Webb earned $6,000.

“The competition was extremely tough,” said Webb of the 200+ boater field that included multiple professionals that fish on the Walmart FLW Tour. “Lake Guntersville is a difficult lake to fish, so when you can come out on top of a field like that it feels pretty good.”

To claim top honors Webb said he fished the main lake around the Goose Pond area, in a range of depths between 3 to 12 feet. He caught seven fish throughout the day using a red Rat-L-Trap, a black and blue-colored jig and a swimbait.

“I caught my first fish at 8 a.m. and one more around 9:30,” Webb said. “It was between 1 p.m. and 3:15 p.m. when I really cleaned up. The fish became more active as the temperature rose, which helped me find my rhythm.

“A lot of guys were throwing jerkbaits,” continued Webb. “I even threw one a couple times, but my original three baits were what got me the win.”

The top 10 boaters:

1st:           Chris Webb, Decatur, Ala., five bass, 28-8, $6,000

2nd:          Keystone Light pro Casey Martin, New Hope, Ala., five bass, 27-5, $3,000
