Jeremiah Kindy Benton, Ark., won the Arkie Division event on Lake Ouachita with a 19-pound, 1-ounce limit.

MOUNT IDA, Ark. – Jeremiah Kindy of Benton, Arkansas, weighed a five-bass limit totaling 19 pounds, 1 ounces Saturday to win the first Walmart Bass Fishing League Arkie Division tournament of 2015 on Lake Ouachita. For his victory, Kindy earned $4,507.

“It’s awesome to start the season out like this,” said Kindy, who has 20 top-10 finishes in FLW competition. “You want these points to qualify for regionals and then hopefully the BFL All-American tournament.”

Kindy reached his five-bass limit by fishing the mouths of bays in the mid-lake area as well as the rocky banks along their points. 

“The morning was tough,” said Kindy. “I ran through all of my areas and didn’t have a single bite. I decided to fish deeper along the same route and caught a three-pounder. Then between 1 p.m. and weigh-in, after the weather warmed up, I ended up catching all of my keepers. 

“They were feeding on crawfish along those rocky points,” Kindy continued. “They were just sitting there in the warmer water which helped produce a consistent bite.”

Kindy caught his entire tournament-winning stringer using a Rayburn Red-colored Xcalibur Xr75 Rattle Bait.

“I only caught eight fish all day, but they were the right ones,” said Kindy.

1st:           Jeremiah Kindy, Benton, Ark., five bass, 19-1, $4,507

Kip Carter of Mansfield, Ga., may not have the nicest, shiniest boat in the Toyota Series Southeastern Division event this week, but it sure gets him where he needs to go. His beater aluminum tunnel hull craft has plenty of nicks and dings in it and for good reason: Getting into the places he has fished on Wheeler Lake the last two days has required enduring some scratches and dents.
