REDINGTON WINS RAYOVAC FLW SERIES CENTRAL DIVISION EVENT ON KENTUCKY/BARKLEY LAKES


 


Readhimer wins co-angler title


 




 


GILBERTSVILLE, Ky. (May 9, 2015) – Tom Redington of Royse City, Texas, weighed a five-bass limit totaling 25 pounds, 7 ounces Saturday to win the Rayovac FLW Series Central Division event on Kentucky and Barkley lakes presented by Evinrude with a three-day total of 15 bass weighing 71 pounds, 13 ounces. For his win, Redington earned $40,000 and a new Ranger Z518 with a 200-horsepower Evinrude or Mercury outboard.


 


“It feels really good to win here on Kentucky Lake,” said Redington, a professional on the Walmart FLW Tour. “This is my favorite lake in the country, so to come back here and do well after a slow start this season on Tour is really something else.”


 


Redington said he targeted the mouths of spawning pockets where postspawn fish were moving back into the main lake.   


 


“During the first couple of days I stuck to shallower ledges in the 6 to 10 foot range,” said Redington. “Normally the ledges are packed and you stay away from them in tournaments, but I found some quiet areas where I knew the first wave fish were coming.


 


“On day one I ran to 10 or 12 spots and slow-pitched a 10-inch plum-colored Lake Fork Tackle worm,” continued Redington. “As the day went on the fish were were chasing more, so I switched to a shad-colored swimbait. I dragged or hopped it along the bottom and I ended up with 18 keepers.”


 


By day three Redington said he had narrowed down his numerous spots to three primary and four secondary locations deeper in the lake due to the swift movement of the fish.


 


“On days like today when it was stormy I swam the swimbait because the fish were higher,” Redington said. “I caught around 20 keepers today. They were really nice, good-sized fish.


 


Finding those big spawning pockets near the main-river channel is what sealed the deal for me,” said Redington. “I couldn’t be happier with how the tournament played out.”


 


The top 10 pros on Kentucky and Barkley lakes were:


 


               1st:          Tom Redington, Royse City, Texas, 15 bass, 71-13, $40,000 + Ranger Z518 with a 200 HP outboard motor


               2nd:         Randy Haynes, Counce, Tenn., 15 bass, 69-12, $15,500

               4th:          David Fields, Murray, Ky., 15 bass, 63-15, $10,000       


               5th:          Walmart pro Mark Rose, West Memphis, Ark., 15 bass, 63-6, $9,000


               6th:          Jason Lambert, Pickwick Dam, Tenn., 15 bass, 63-4, $8,000      


               7th:          Clent Davis, Montevallo, Ala., 15 bass, 62-6, $7,000


               8th:          Curt McGuire, Paris, Tenn., 15 bass, 61-0, $6,000         


               9th:          Seth Davis, Decatur, Tenn., 15 bass, 56-14, $5,000      


               10th:        Wesley Anderson, Moscow, Tenn., 10 bass, 40-06, $4,000

Boater Tim Frederick of Leesburg, Florida, and co-angler Dennis Hollis of Bartlett, Tennessee had their day one weight disqualified from the tournament for violating Rayovac FLW Series rule No. 13, which contains provisions regarding permitted fishing locations. FLW officials were made aware that the duo fished inside the off-limits area. Frederick caught five bass for 15 pounds, 10 ounces Friday and finished in 202nd place.


 


Kelly Readhimer of Henderson, Tennessee, won the co-angler division and a Ranger Z117C with a 90-horsepower Evinrude or Mercury outboard motor, with a three-day total of 12 bass weighing 48 pounds, 10 ounces.
