UPCOMING EVENT: YETI College Fishing - 2019 - Sam Rayburn Reservoir


Power Plucked Suspended Fish for Win

Kelly Power

 Kelly Power of Cape Fair, Missouri, weighed a five-bass limit totaling 16 pounds, 7 ounces, Saturday to win the third FLW Bass Fishing League (BFL) Ozark Division tournament of 2016 on Table Rock Lake. For his victory, Power earned $5,663.

Power spent his morning on the James River targeting suspended bass. He says he used a white Hog Farmer swim jig to catch nearly 30 keepers throughout his day.

“The schools were suspended over deep timber in 10 to 15 of water,” says Power, who earned the first win of his FLW career. “I rigged the swim jig with a pearl-colored Keitech Swimbait so it had more pull. You want something that vibrates a bit for suspended bass.

“At my first area I had 11 keepers in 11 casts,” Power continues. “The water was clear, so a subtle presentation was crucial. I wanted something down there that didn’t look hard to eat.”

By 8:30 a.m., Power says his flurry slowed, so he moved on to new structure.

“I hit 10 or so spots where the channel swung in close to timber or major drops,” says Power. “The bass were with shad schools in the tops of submerged trees, about 15 feet down. I just kept culling and brought in what I did. I had a great day out there.”

The top 10 boaters:

1st:          Kelly Power, Cape Fair, Mo., five bass, 16-7, $5,663
