Aaron Harrelson of Glen, Mississippi, weighed four bass totaling 18 pounds, 2 ounces, Sunday to win the Walmart Bass Fishing League Mississippi Division Super Tournament on Pickwick Lake with a two-day total of nine bass weighing 32 pounds, 9 ounces. For his victory, Harrelson earned $6,638.

“I caught my fish in 8 feet of water near grass on a red worm and a chartreuse and white-colored spinnerbait,” said Harrelson of his first career win in FLW competition. “I also caught some on a G-Bait Custom Lures Jig.”

Harrelson said he caught each of his nine keepers over the course of the tournament at his mid-lake area.

“I was fortunate enough to be fishing grass that no one else was on,” said Harrelson “What made it special was a little ditch that ran through the area. It was about 2 feet deeper than the grass around it, and made for a great flipping spot.”

The top 10 boaters:

1st:          Aaron Harrelson, Glen, Miss., nine bass, 32-9, $6,638

2nd:         Kevin Wright, Waterloo, Ala., 10 bass, 32-4, $3,319

Dale Hollow Midday Update – Day 2

Smith Stays Consistent on Dale Hollow

Smith Stays Consistent on Dale Hollow

Dale Hollow has been tough as nails this week for the competitors in the Toyota Series Central Division event. Only three of the top 10 have managed limits both days, and one of those limits was shy of 7 pounds. So, Blake Smith’s back to back limits of 11 pounds, 9 ounces, and 11-13 qualify as extremely impressive. Leading with a total of 23-6, Smith has more than a 3-pound edge on second-place Chris Malone and seems to be in prime position to bring home a win on Saturday. READ MORE »

Bowling Leads on Dale Hollow

As tough as Dale Hollow has been fishing lately, it’s not really a surprise that only nine anglers managed to crack double digits after day one of the Toyota Series Central Division finale. What was surprising, though, was to see one angler – Harriman, Tennessee’s Jonathan Bowling – grab a lead of more than 1 1/2 pounds. Given the conditions, that’s a huge lead. READ MORE »
