Gordon Grabs Title on Dardanelle

Shawn Gordon of Russellville, Ark., won the April 11 Arkie Division event on Lake Dardanelle with a 19-pound, 7-ounce limit to claim a check worth over $7,200 for his efforts.

RUSSELLVILLE, Ark. – Shawn Gordon of Russellville, Arkansas, weighed a five-bass limit totaling 19 pounds, 7 ounces Saturday to win the third Walmart Bass Fishing League Arkie Division tournament of 2015 on Lake Dardanelle. For his victory, Gordon earned $7,244.

“It feels great to take home a check,” said Gordon. “To see the all of the hard work that I put in practicing pay off is really nice.”

Gordon said he targeted shallow grass in mid lake and lower-lake areas. He threw watermelon red- and green pumpkin-colored Yum Swim’n Dingers.

“The postspawn fish were really active,” said Gordon.

Around 9 a.m., Gordon switched techniques to flipping grass and wood.

“The fish were also spawning so I switched to a Junebug-colored Yum Baits Lizard,” said Gordon. “It ended up working well for me. I caught nine keepers throughout the day.”
