Reneau Grabs Lead On Seminole

Tim Reneau spent the day flipping big jigs in Seminole's prolific hydrilla.

Look at the day-two standings sheet of the Rayovac FLW Series event on Lake Seminole and the name Tim Reneau from Del Rio, Texas will be at the top.

Del Rio, Texas? Isn’t that a little far from Bainbridge, Georgia?

Yes it is, 1050 miles to be exact. But Reneau drove all the way to Seminole for one reason: to flip grass, just like he does back home in Texas.

“This lake sets up a lot like Toledo Bend or Amistad in terms of the grass growth,” Reneau says. “When I saw this one on the schedule in May, I figured I would drive out here and fish the way I like to fish.”

Though Reneau has weighed in 15-1 and 20-7 over two days for a total of 35 pounds, 8 ounces, he says he is only getting about six bites per day.

“The grass is set up just the way I like it, but I have not caught near as many fish as I thought I would,” he adds. “Back home, when you get a bite in grass like that, there are usually a few more with it. Here, I get one bite…and that’s it. In practice I waypointed 20 spots where I got a bite and I have yet to catch a fish off any one of those spots. Each day I’ve just had to fish like I’m practicing – fishing new water. The last two days I’ve only had two keepers in my well at 11 o’clock. And that’s just about the time I start running brand new water and that’s when I get a few more quality bites. Just once I’d like to hit a school where I could catch several in a row, but that has not happened yet – maybe tomorrow.”

The Texan Reneau only leads by a pound and he has a handful of locals breathing down his neck going into the final day. Can he hold off the local contingent and make his 1050 mile drive pay off in a big way? Tomorrow will tell.

 

The top 10 pros:

1st: Tim Reneau, Del Rio, Texas, 35-8

2nd: Clint Brown, Bainbridge, Ga., 34-8

3rd: Ken Ellis, Bowman, S.C., 33-1

4th: Clayton Batts, Macon, Ga., 32-9

5th: Sven Hilland, Sanford, Fla., 32-2

6th: Rodger Beaver, Dawson, Ga., 31-14

7th Scott Wiley, Bay Minette, Ala., 31-8

8th Bradley Enfinger, Colquitt, Ga., 31-7

9th John Hunter, Shelbyville, Ky., 31-3

10th John Bitter, Maitland, Fla., 31-0

Greg Jeter leads the co-angler division with 34-6.

Jeter leads co-angler side

In the Co-angler Division, well-known local Greg Jeter has taken a sizeable lead with a two-day total of 34-6. Jeter brought in 19-3 today to put more than five pounds between him and second place.

Jeter is in his comfort zone at Seminole and will be hard to knock-off the hot seat tomorrow.

“I like the way the lake is fishing right now,” Jeter says. “I drew a great partner today who took me to some places I’m really familiar with and that helps a lot.”

Gross Grabs Toho Lead

Day three of the FLW Tour presented by Ranger Boats on Lake Toho was tough on the leaders, but Buddy Gross stayed steady, rising to first from fifth with 19 pounds, 12 ounces. In total, Gross has amassed 62 pounds even through three days, which is just about a pound ahead of Darrell Davis, who caught 25-12 for a 60-15 total and rocketed up to second from 13th. Going into the final day, everyone in the top six is within 5 pounds of the lead, and the way the Kissimmee Chain is pumping out big ones, that counts as the slimmest of margins. READ MORE »

Okeechobee is normally the place of dreams. This week, however, it isn’t quite living up to its reputation. Day one of the Costa FLW Series Southeastern Division event on the Big O saw plenty of fish, though the quality bites were hard to come by. Troy Roder of Brookeland, Texas, set the pace early with a 19-pound, 15-ounce limit to grab the lead in the season opener – presented by Power-Pole – with a lead of over 4 pounds heading into Friday.
