Table Rock winners.

KIMBERLING CITY, Mo. – Matt Beckler of Strafford, Missouri, and Todd Knaack of Lawson, Missouri, each weighed five-bass limits totaling 15 pounds, 7 ounces Saturday to tie for the win the third Walmart Bass Fishing League Ozark Division tournament of 2015 on Table Rock Lake. For their victories, each angler earned $3,028. 



Beckler said he chose to target boat docks within various spawning pockets in the mid-lake area with a homemade green-pumpkin-colored shaky-head rig and a 4-inch green-pumpkin Yamamoto Senko . 



“There were three pockets where the shad were spawning around the docks,” said Beckler. “I decided to target the deeper docks that were in 12 to 14 feet of water and managed to catch 12 keepers.



 “I found there were three different bites throughout the day,” Beckler continued. “In the morning the fish were on the bottom in the shadows. Around 10:30 a.m. the fish suspended underneath the docks around the shad spawn. Then, when the sun was higher in the afternoon, the fish were closer to the surface in the shadows of the dock.



“Most of my bass bit in 10 feet of water,” said Beckler. “I just had to be patient.” 



Knaack said he fished slowly in the spawning pockets using a Texas-rigged green-pumpkin-colored Zoom Brush Hog.



“I went looking for stained water. I like fishing that type of color,” said Knaack.



Knaack said he explored around 12 pockets in order to catch his nine keepers.



“I stayed fairly shallow, in 6 feet of water,” said Knaack. “I caught the biggest fish of the tournament, a 4-pound, 14-ouncer, around 11:30. I knew then I had a shot at winning.”



The top 10 boaters:



 1st:          Matt Beckler, Strafford, Mo., five bass, 15-7, $3,028



1st:          Todd Knaack, Lawson, Mo., five bass, 15-7, $3,028 + $1,000 Mercury Bonus
