Floyd Flips For LBL Win

Floyd Flips For LBL Win
Steve Floyd of Leesburg, Ohio, won the May 2 LBL Division event on Kentucky-Barkley Lakes with 16 pounds, 11 ounces. He earned over $6,800 for his efforts.

HARDIN, Ky. – Steve Floyd of Leesburg, Ohio, weighed a five-bass limit totaling 16 pounds, 11 ounces Saturday to win the third Walmart Bass Fishing League LBL Division tournament of 2015 on Kentucky and Barkley lakes. For his victory, Floyd earned $6,806.



“It feels pretty great to grab a win,” said Floyd. “I spend a lot of time practicing for this tournament, so it’s nice to see it payoff.”



Floyd said he focused on flipping bushes in small spawning pockets near Paris Landing as his main strategy. 



“I probably fished a 10-mile stretch of the river,” said Floyd. “There were four spots I knew would be producing.



“The fish were primarily in shallow bushes,” continued Floyd. “There were a lot of large males and females in that area. Most of them were spawning even though the ones I caught were postspawn.” 



To reach his winning five-bass limit, Floyd said he used a green pumpkin-colored Berkley Havoc Pit Boss.



 “I caught about nine keepers all in the 3½ pound range,” said Floyd. “It was a fun and consistent day of fishing.”



The top 10 boaters:



1st:          Steve Floyd, Leesburg, Ohio, five bass, 16-11, $4,806 + $2,000 Ranger Cup Bonus
