Mayfield Gets First Win on Guntersville
Chris Mayfield

Boater Chris Mayfield of Phil Campbell, Alabama, weighed a five-bass limit totaling 23 pounds, 14 ounces Saturday to win the T-H Marine FLW Bass Fishing League (BFL) Choo Choo Division event on Lake Guntersville. Mayfield took home $4,079 for his victory.

“I was fishing in the mid-lake area,” said Mayfield, who earned his first career BFL win. “The fish were just getting out to the ledges. Literally a day ago they weren’t there. I was finding them with my electronics and just following them around.”

Mayfield said that he caught all of his limit on a Carolina-rigged Zoom Lizard, although he declined to specify the exact color. He did catch a fish on a jig as well, but all of the fish that he weighed in came via the Carolina rig.

“The fish were roaming in schools and I just kept moving with them,” Mayfield said. “I’ve had some terrible luck on Lake Guntersville over the years, and Saturday was just one of those days where everything was working for me.”

The top 10 boaters finished the tournament in:

              1st:          Chris Mayfield, Phil Campbell, Ala., five bass, 23-14, $4,079

              2nd:         Ryan Salzman, Huntsville, Ala., five bass, 20-13, $2,040

Through two days of competition on the Potomac in the Costa FLW Series Northern Division presented by Gajo Baits event the weights haven’t been nearly what the river is capable of kicking out. That said, all the top pros have managed to put at least one good day together, and some have maintained really strong consistency, just at a lesser pace than would be the norm in June or some other time of the year.

Day one of the Potomac River event, which is the second stop of the Costa FLW Series Northern Division presented by Gajo Baits, featured plenty of limits, but getting quality bites was definitely an issue for some.
