FISHING LEAGUE WORLDWIDE

Baty Tops Bulldog Event

Matt Baty of Attapulgus, Ga., won the May 9 Bulldog Division event on Lake Seminole with a 22-pound, 15-ounce limit to claim a $4,700 payday.

BAINBRIDGE, Ga. – Matt Baty of Attapulgus, Georgia, weighed a five-bass limit totaling 22 pounds, 15 ounces Saturday to win the third Walmart Bass Fishing League Bulldog Division tournament of 2015 on Lake Seminole. For his victory, Baty earned $4,718.

“It was a great day of fishing,” said Baty. “All my spots were firing like I hoped they would.”

Baty said he started his day off fishing hydrilla-covered shallow humps using a nasty shad-colored Spro Fat John 60 crankbait.

“I targeted spots near where the Chattahoochee River and Flint River dump into the main lake, specifically where the humps were 5 to 7-feet deep,” Baty said.

Around noon, Baty said he switched to fishing deep ledges in 20 to 25 feet of water using a nasty shad-colored Spro Little John crankbait. Within the hour, he caught two 5-pounders.

“I caught nine keepers throughout the day but those two big ones put me over the top,” Baty said. “Hopefully I can keep this momentum going into my next BFL tournament.”

The top 10 boaters:

1st:          Matt Baty, Attapulgus, Ga., five bass, 22-15, $3,718 + $1,000 Mercury Bonus
