UPCOMING EVENT: Costa FLW Series - 2019 - Lake Mead

FISHING LEAGUE WORLDWIDE

One-Two Punch Paid for Reagan

Robert Reagan of Byrdstown, Tenn., won the March 12 Music City Division event on Dale Hollow with a 20-pound, 10-ounce limit and took home over $7,100 in winnings.

Local angler Robert Reagan of Byrdstown, weighed a five-bass limit totaling 20 pounds, 10 ounces, Saturday to win the first FLW Bass Fishing League (BFL) Music City Division tournament of 2016 on Dale Hollow Lake. For his victory, Reagan took home $7,155.

Reagan caught his winning stringer out of mid-lake chunk rock scattered throughout 20 different areas. He says he was able to catch four bass fairly quickly using a homemade jig rigged with a green-pumpkin Zoom Super Speed Craw.

“I caught them shallow in 3 to 4 feet of water,” says Reagan, who earned his second career win in FLW competition. “After that, my goal was to find the largest kicker possible.”

Around noon, the jig bite slowed down so Reagan began targeting channel banks within his areas using an umbrella rig with SXE Shad-colored Roboworm EZ Shad swimbaits.

“The bass were near the surface and bit as soon as the rig hit the water,” says Reagan. “I was only able to get two in the boat, but they were decent-sized fish.

“My biggest bass came on the umbrella rig and that put me on top,” Reagan went on to say. “I don’t think I would’ve won without it.”

The top 10 boaters:

1st:          Robert Reagan, Byrdstown, Tenn., five bass, 20-10, $5,155 + $2,000 Ranger Cup Bonus
