GILBERTSVILLE, Ky. – It was a tournament double-header for bass anglers this past weekend in Gilbertsville with the Phoenix Bass Fishing League presented by T-H Marine event on Kentucky and Barkley Lakes events.

Boater Gary Singleton of Dickson, Tennessee, caught a three-bass limit totaling 10 pounds, 15 ounces to earn the win Saturday and earn $5,289, then boater David Young of Mayfield, Kentucky, brought three bass to the scale on Sunday weighing 9 pounds, 11 ounces to earn the win and $3,592.

“I ran about 60 miles south, fishing secondary bars,” said Singleton, who earned his first career BFL victory. “I threw a white ¾-ounce Hoppy’s spinnerbait all day long.”

The top five boaters on Saturday were:

 1st: Gary Singleton of Dickson, Tenn., three bass, 10-15, $5,289

The top five co-anglers Saturday finished as follows:

 1st: Barry Gunter of Trafalgar, Ind., three bass, 11-4, $2,144

On Sunday, winning boater David Young overcame some equipment issues and still managed to earn the victory.

“I went from the dam to Paris (Tennessee),” said Young, who earned his 11th career win in Bass Fishing League competition. “I threw a (Heddon Zara) Spook on the main lake and caught some fish, then after that I went fishing docks and random stuff – flipping a beaver and throwing a green-pumpkin-colored lizard.

“The key was moving around – well floating around,” Young went on to say. “I had some trolling motor trouble out there that I had to deal with, but it worked out in the end.”

The top five boaters on Sunday finished:

 1st: David Young of Mayfield, Ky., three bass, 9-11, $3,592

 2nd: Ramie Colson Jr. of Cadiz, Ky., three bass, 9-9, $1,796

 3rd: Gary Singleton of Dickson, Tenn., three bass, 9-2, $1,201

 3rd: Charles Jones of Beech Bluff, Tenn., three bass, 8-7, $838

 5th: Patrick Ross of Almo, Ky., three bass, 8-3, $1,218

Complete results for Sunday’s event on Kentucky Lake can be found at FLWFishing.com.

Lance Freeman of Eddyville, Kentucky, claimed the day’s Boater Big Bass Award of $460 after bringing a 5-pound, 13-ounce bass to the scale.

Ross was the highest-finishing FLW PHOENIX BONUS member and took home an extra $500.

Ryan Scott of Owensboro, Kentucky, and Chuck Ledbetter of Fort Campbell, Kentucky, tied for the win in the Co-angler Division Sunday after both anglers brought in three bass totaling 7 pounds, 7 ounces. For their wins, each angler brought home $1,347.

The top five co-anglers finished as follows:

The 2020 Phoenix Bass Fishing League presented by T-H Marine is a 24-division circuit devoted to weekend anglers, with 128 tournaments throughout the season, five qualifying events in each division. The top 45 boaters and co-anglers from each division, along with the five winners of the qualifying events, will advance to one of six regional tournaments where they are competing to finish in the top six, which then qualifies them for one of the longest-running championships in all of competitive bass fishing – the Phoenix Bass Fishing League All-American.

The 2020 Phoenix Bass Fishing League All-American will be held Nov. 11-13 at Lake Hartwell in Anderson, South Carolina and is hosted by Visit Anderson.
