Mann Cracks 27-13 for Choo Choo title

Terry Mann of Warrior, Ala., won the March 5 Choo Choo Division event on Lake Guntersville with a 27-pound, 13-ounce limit to claim a $7,300 payday.

Terry Mann of Warrior, Alabama, weighed a five-bass limit totaling 27 pounds, 13 ounces, Saturday to win the second FLW Bass Fishing League (BFL) Choo Choo Division tournament of 2016 on Lake Guntersville. For his victory, Mann took home $7,337.

Mann targeted bass mid-river, near isolated grass clumps that were located in the mouths of spawning pockets. He says that the clumps were approximately 10 feet by 10 feet in size.

“I had three main areas where I was throwing into about 4 to 8 feet of water,” says Mann, who earned his first win in BFL competition. “I kept throwing near anything that I thought would stop bass as they came up shallow to spawn and eventually the right fish bit.”

Mann used both a Strike King 2.5 (Chili Craw color) and a 1.5 (Bluegill) square-billed crankbait to catch his fish. He says the majority of his keepers came on the Chili Craw color.

“Four of my stringer fish, including my 9-pounder, were caught on the 2.5,” says Mann. “The big thing for me was that the bait just barely touched the grass. If you got down too far, the hook would get a lot of sludge on it and nothing would bite.”

Mann went on to say that he caught eight keepers over the course of the day.

“I was lucky enough to catch a couple of decent-sized fish early,” says Mann. “It was just one of those days where everything went my way.”
