McAllister Targets Timber for Title

SKIATOOK, Okla. – Sean McAllister of Checotah, Oklahoma, weighed four bass totaling 16 pounds, 13 ounces Saturday to win the fourth Walmart Bass Fishing League North Okie Division tournament of 2015 on Skiatook Lake. For his victory, McAllister earned $4,618.

“To finally come out on top at a BFL tournament feels great,” said McAllister, who earned his first career victory in his 20th BFL Okie division tournament. “It’s been a long time coming.

“I found my fish in some timber flats near Cedar Creek, where they were suspended 8 feet down,” continued McAllister. “I was flipping a green-pumpkin-colored Punch Skirt jig with a Zoom Trick Worm. When the wind picked up I switched to a green-pumpkin Zoom Speed Craw because it was easier to control.”

McAllister said each of the four keepers he landed during the tournament came from the same 150-yard stretch.

“I predicted it would take 12 pounds to win the tournament so after I got my third keeper in the boat I started to get pretty excited,” McAllister said. “I spent the last hour of the tournament trying to find a kicker.”

At 1:55 p.m., McAllister managed to pull in a 6-pound, 15-ounce behemoth – tied for the biggest bass of the tournament.

“After that one I figured I had the tournament just about wrapped up,” McAllister said. “It couldn’t have worked out any better.”

The top 10 boaters:

1st:          Sean McAllister, Checotah, Okla., four bass, 16-13, $4,618

2nd:         Marcus Sykora, Osage Beach, Mo., five bass, 12-15, $2,309
