UPCOMING EVENT: Costa FLW Series - 2019 - Lake Mead

FISHING LEAGUE WORLDWIDE

Anderson Dominates on Barren River

Brent Anderson

Brent Anderson of Kingston Springs, Tennessee, won the T-H Marine FLW Bass Fishing League (BFL) Mountain Division tournament on the Barren River Saturday with five bass totaling 18 pounds, 10 ounces. For his win, Anderson took home $4,252.

Anderson said he split his day between two different schools of bass – one in Skaggs Creek and the other on the main river. He said both schools were stationed in 14 to 18 feet of water, and that they were the only two he fished all day.

“I was the only one who even attempted to fish the first school in Skaggs Creek,” said Anderson, who earned his seventh career-victory in BFL competition. “They were located near a side of a point where the creek channel swung in and touched the side of it. I ended up catching most of my weight there using a 1-ounce (white) Tennessee River Tackle hair jig that had feathers tied in it.”

Anderson said he spent a little more than three hours in Skaggs Creek before moving on to his main-river area, another channel swing that bent away from the bank and ran down the side of a skinny point.

“The fish weren’t biting the hair jig so I switched to an 8-inch, chrome-colored (Nichols) Magnum Spoon,” said Anderson. “I was able to catch two good ones fairly quickly.”

The top 10 boaters finished the tournament in:

               1st:          Brent Anderson, Kingston Springs, Tenn., five bass, 18-10, $4,252

               2nd:         Casey O'Donnell, Langston, Ala., five bass, 15-0, $1,598
