UPCOMING EVENT: Costa FLW Series - 2019 - Lake Mead

FISHING LEAGUE WORLDWIDE

Chenoweth Wins on Kerr

Rick Chenoweth of Fredericksburg, Va., won the April 11 Piedmont Division event on Kerr Lake with a 17-pound, 8-ounce limit to capture a check worth over $5,200.

HENDERSON, N.C. – Rick Chenoweth of Fredericksburg, Virginia, weighed a five-bass limit totaling 17 pounds, 8 ounces Saturday to win the first Walmart Bass Fishing League Piedmont Division tournament of 2015 on Kerr Lake. For his victory, Chenoweth earned $5,241.

“It was a good day of fishing,” said Chenoweth. “I couldn’t have asked for a better tournament.”

Chenoweth earned top honors by fishing secondary points between spawning pockets in the Nutbush area. He said he was expecting other boaters to be waiting for him by the time he arrived, but ended up having the spot to himself.

“There were four points between five pockets,” Chenoweth said. “I worked up and down the sides for a long time. You could troll between the points they were so close together.”

Chenoweth said he used a Dave’s Tournament Tackle green pumpkin  football-head jig to catch his five keepers.

“I just dragged it along the bottom. If you hopped it, shook it or added any type of movement at all other than a drag the bass wouldn’t touch it,” Chenoweth said. “I had a limit in the boat within 30 minutes of takeoff.”

The top 10 boaters:

1st:          Rick Chenoweth, Fredericksburg, Va., five bass, 17-8, $5,241

2nd:         Shawn Hammack , Gasburg, Va., five bass, 16-15, $2,620
