Practice Pays for Price on Lake Russell

Bo Price of Westminster, S.C., won the March 14 Savannah River Division tournament on Lake Russell with a 17-pound limit to earn a payday worth over $6,700.

ELBERTON, Ga. – Bo Price of Westminster, South Carolina, weighed a five-bass limit totaling 17 pounds even Saturday to win the second Walmart Bass Fishing League Savannah River Division tournament of 2015 on Lake Russell. For his victory, Price earned $6,796.

“The financial part is great, but getting out there and seeing all your hard work come to fruition is always more satisfying to me than the money,” said Price.

In order to claim the tournament’s top prize, Price said that he fished his favorite patches of trees in the midlake area, off the main river.

“The timber has a lot of decent fish in it,” said Price. “I usually can catch some quality bass in there.”

He went on to say that the weather definitely played a big role in this tournament.

“Up until about three days before the tournament, the weather was nice and the fish were pulling up shallow in their prespawn phase,” Price said. “But the recent cold rain pushed everything back a bit deeper.”

Luckily, Price was able to start his day off right by netting a 6-pound, 4-ounce bass and another 5-pound keeper using a white 1/2-ounce Hawg Caller spinnerbait.

“After I caught those two, I was faced with the decision to fish for a limit or chase more big ones,” Price said. “I decided to keep fishing for the limit.”

Around 10 a.m., the bite slowed in the trees so Price finished off his day targeting mainlake points. He used a custom-made peanut butter and jelly-colored football-head jig to fill his limit.

“I figured it would take around 20 pounds to win the tournament,” Price said. “So I kept rolling with the 2- or 3-pounders and ended up with a nice stringer.”

The top 10 boaters:

1st:          Bo Price, Westminster, S.C., five bass, 17-0, $4,796 + $2,000 Ranger Cup award

2nd:         Kerry Partain, Elberton, Ga., five bass, 14-14, $2,398
