Cifuentes Swims And Spins For Title
Joey Cifuentes of Clinton, Ark., won the May 2 Arkie Division event on Lake Dardanelle with 18 pounds, 12 ounces. He earned nearly $7,000 for his efforts.

RUSSELLVILLE, Ark. – Joey Cifuentes of Clinton, Arkansas, weighed a five-bass limit totaling 18 pounds, 12 ounces Saturday to win the fourth Walmart Bass Fishing League Arkie Division tournament of 2015 on Lake Dardanelle. For his victory, Cifuentes earned $6,926.



“This tournament was really fun to fish,” said Cifuentes. “I know it was a tough day for a lot of anglers but I ended up having a great day.”



Cifuentes said he started out by fishing grass in the Illinois Bayou using a Denali rod and a black and blue-colored Jewel Bait Company Magnum Casting Jig.



“I just swam it through the grass and targeted postspawn fish that were pulling up and feeding,” Cifuentes said. “I probably had 14½ pounds by 10 a.m.”



Around 1 p.m., Cifuentes said he focused on a windy bank where he found wood and rock mixed with grass and switched to a War Eagle spinnerbait.



“I caught three keepers and a 6-pounder by 1:30 p.m.,” Cifuentes said. “I was feeling pretty good about my chances of winning by then.”



 Cifuentes said he caught 12 keepers over the course of the tournament.



"My gut decision to fish that bank worked out for me,” Cifuentes said.



The top 10 boaters:



1st:          Joey Cifuentes, Clinton, Ark., five bass, 18-12, $3,926 + $2,000 Ranger Cup Bonus + $1,000 Mercury Bonus
