UPCOMING EVENT: T-H Marine BFL - 2019 - Lake Norman

FISHING LEAGUE WORLDWIDE

Poffenberger Found the Right Four

Jake Poffenberger

Jake Poffenberger of Brookville, Ohio, weighed four bass totaling 9 pounds, 7 ounces, Saturday to win the fourth FLW Bass Fishing League (BFL) Buckeye Division tournament of 2016 on the Ohio River. For his victory, Poffenberger earned $4,684.

“I spent my day fishing four different creek mouths between the lock and Maysville,” says Poffenberger, who earned his first win in FLW competition. “I picked apart 100-yard stretches along flats and hit all kinds of wood. I think the river was fluctuating a lot, so that’s why bass were close to the creek mouths and not in the backwaters.

“The flats I sat on were about 2 feet down, but there was deeper water nearby,” Poffenberger continues. “When the sun came out I had better bites because the bass were pushed closer to the wood.”

Poffenberger rotated between a 1/8-ounce chartreuse-colored Hawk Spinnerbait and a Watermelon Red Magic-colored Yamamoto Senko to catch his four keepers.

“I used the Hawk until the wind stopped blowing, then I picked up the Senko,” says Poffenberger. “I didn’t catch many fish, but they were the right size.”

The top 10 boaters:

1st:          Jake Poffenberger, Brookville, Ohio, four bass, 9-7, $4,684

2nd:         Kyle Weisenburger, Ottawa, Ohio, five bass, 9-0, $2,059
