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

FISHING LEAGUE WORLDWIDE

Lunceford Flipped Bushes to Win on Eufaula

Phillip Lunceford

Boater Phillip Lunceford of Stigler, Oklahoma, weighed a five-bass limit totaling 16 pounds even Saturday to win the T-H Marine FLW Bass Fishing League (BFL) Okie Division event on Lake Eufaula. Lunceford took home $4,830 for his victory.

Lunceford said that all of the fish that he caught Saturday came via flipping bushes. He fished a 5 to 6 mile stretch, starting a mile east of Standing Rock and fishing all the way to Duchess Creek.

“I live on the lake, so I knew that flipping bushes was going to be the main pattern,” Lunceford said. “I only caught nine fish throughout the day, and four of them were not keepers. I actually lost a 3- and a 4-pounder, and I probably should have weighed in 18 or 19 pounds. Luckily my 16 pounds was enough to get it done.”

Lunceford said that he rotated through three different flipping baits throughout the day – a Reaction Innovations Sweet Beaver, a Strike King Rodent and a Gene Larew Salt Craw.

“I worked my way through Duchess all the way up in to Mud Creek,” Lunceford said. “The water was rising, so it eliminated a lot of water that I had wanted to fish. I knew that the fish would be in the bushes, so I just kept my head down and stayed with it.”

The top 10 boaters finished the tournament in:

              1st:          Phillip Lunceford, Stigler, Okla., five bass, 16-0, $4,830

              2nd:         Cade Alsbury, Springdale, Ark., five bass, 15-14, $2,615
