UPCOMING EVENT: YETI FLW COLLEGE FISHING - 2019 - Sam Rayburn Reservoir

FISHING LEAGUE WORLDWIDE

Scattered Weeds Bring Greene the Gold

Kyle Greene

Kyle Greene of Ortonville, Michigan, weighed a five-bass limit totaling 23 pounds even Saturday to win the second FLW Bass Fishing League (BFL) Michigan Division tournament of 2016 on Lake St. Clair. For his victory, Greene took home $6,155.

Greene says he spent his day on the Canadian side of Lake St. Clair, targeting scattered weeds. He moved along a 300-yard stretch and fished in 6 to 10 feet of water.

“I used two baits – a Fiesta Melon-colored PROvider Performance Series Tube and a natural-colored swimbait,” says Greene, who earned the first win of his FLW career. “The weed patches had holes in the middle of them. I casted the swimbait up into the weeds and reeled it in slow, or let the tube lay on the bottom.

“I caught a 5-pounder on the swimbait to start things out, but the tube did the rest of the damage,” Greene continues. “I ended up catching nearly 40 keepers throughout the event.”

Greene had most of his winning weight by 9:30 a.m.

“Over the past few years I’ve had strong finishes at BFL events, but have never won,” says Greene, who started fishing BFL events in 1995. “This feels pretty good. I guess it was my time.”

1st:          Kyle Greene, Ortonville, Mich., five bass, 23-0, $4,155 + $2,000 Ranger Cup Bonus
