The Adrian College team of Myles Jackman of White Lake, Michigan, and Zachary Graham of Gallipolis, Ohio, won the YETI FLW College Fishing event on Lake Cayuga presented by Bass Pro Shops Saturday with five bass weighing 20 pounds, 2 ounces. The victory earned the Bulldogs’ bass club $2,400 and a slot in the 2019 FLW College Fishing National Championship.

The two anglers focused on a 75-yard stretch of docks on the eastern shoreline above the Interstate 90 bridge, specifically between the bridge and the lock system. Graham says there were bluegill beds in the area, near both the front and backs of the docks and between the docks along the seawalls.

“We started on the north end of the stretch and worked our way down,” says Graham, a junior majoring in Environmental Studies and Geology. “Myles primarily threw a frog on the grass mats and we ended up weighing two on it.

“I used the jig under the docks and the Zell Pop on the seawalls,” Graham says. “I caught fish with the jig, but the topwaters got the big keeper bites. They were definitely the key to our success.”

Jackman’s frog was a white Strike King Sexy Frog. Graham used a Booyah Boo Jig with a green-pumpkin-colored Berkley Powerbait Chigger Craw and a hitch-colored XCalibur Zell Pop. Jackman, a junior majoring in Environmental Science and Geology, says the duo had a limit by 7:15 a.m. before Graham culled out three fish in a row with the Zell Pop to put the Bulldogs up around 17 pounds by 8:30 a.m.

“After the culls we ran down the lake to a point on the east side that had big chunk rock going out into the lake,” says Graham. “There was a 20- to 30-yard trough between the rock and the grass line that we thought the fish would be holding in. I threw the jig in there and on my third cast I caught a 4½ -pounder. I culled out a small fish and that put us at 20 pounds.”

Potomac River Top 5 Patterns – Day 2

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.

Reese Leads on the Potomac

Reese Leads on the Potomac

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. In the lead after day one, Marvin Reese of Randallstown, Md., weighed 14 pounds, 12 ounces to get things underway. Behind Reese, Justin Atkins and Jason Kervin both weighed 14-5, and Robert Grike rounded out the 14-pound brigade with 14-4. Overall, just 11 pros cracked the 12-pound mark on day one of the tournament, which is presented by Lowrance, but 8- and 9-pound limits weren’t too hard to come by.  READ MORE »
