For his victory, Berhorst earned $8,349.

Dennis Berhorst of Holts Summit, Missouri, weighed a five-bass limit totaling 21 pounds, 1 ounce Sunday to win the Walmart Bass Fishing League Ozark Division Super Tournament on Lake of the Ozarks with a two-day total of 10 bass weighing 39 pounds, 8 ounces. For his victory, Berhorst earned $8,349.

“I caught every fish that I brought to the scale by flipping boat docks on the lower end of the lake near the dam,” said Berhorst, who pushed his career earnings with FLW to more than $316,000.  “The fish were active in anywhere from 2 to 10 feet of water.

“On Saturday I caught 11 keepers fairly quick,” continued Berhorst. “I eased up on my spots around 10 a.m., knowing I had to fish there again on Sunday. It took me a little longer to catch my limit on Sunday because the fish had moved and I had to make a few adjustments. I still managed to catch nine keepers.”

Berhorst said he used one bait throughout the entire tournament – a green-pumpkin Chompers Boss Hawg.

“I’ve won a lot of prize money on that bait,” said Berhorst. “The Boss Hawg gets the job done.”

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 »

Roder Out Front on Big O

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.
