FISHING LEAGUE WORLDWIDE

Ledges Lift Wilson to Top

Tim Wilson of Gas City, Indiana, weighed a five-bass limit totaling 29 pounds, 10 ounces to win the Choo Choo Division tournament on Lake Guntersville. For his victory, Wilson earned $5,584.

GUNTERSVILLE, Ala. – Tim Wilson of Gas City, Indiana, weighed a five-bass limit totaling 29 pounds, 10 ounces Saturday to win the fourth Walmart Bass Fishing League Choo Choo Division tournament of 2015 on Lake Guntersville. For his victory, Wilson earned $5,584.

“Saturday was probably the best day of fishing I’ve ever had,” said Wilson. “I was able to fire up a couple different schools and catch a ton of keepers.”

Wilson said he focused on three key ledges off of the Tennessee River channel in 17 to 25 feet of water.

“I caught my fish using a sexy shad-colored Scottsboro Tackle swimbait, a custom crawfish-colored football-head jig and my bigger fish on a Nichols Lures Ben Parker Magnum Spoon,” Wilson said. “When these schools are this active I’d make a cast and have a bite before the bait hit the bottom.”

Wilson said that while the majority of his fish came deep from the ledges, he also targeted two cuts in the banks of the lake.

“I probably caught at least forty keepers throughout the day,” Wilson said. “It killed me to throw back 5-pounders but they weren’t doing me any good. I just couldn’t believe the flurries that I hit.”

The top 10 boaters:

1st:          Tim Wilson, Gas City, Ind., five bass, 29-10, $4,584 + $1,000 Mercury Bonus

2nd:         Kevin McMahan, Huntsville, Ala., five bass, 27-6, $2,292
