Robert Walser Targets Shallow Fish to Win at Wylie

Athens, Al - Robert Walser of Lexington, NC weighed in 5 fish weighing 17.22 to win the Weekend Bass Series North Carolina event 2014-08-02 on Wiley.

54 year old plumbing contractor Robert Walser took the title at Lake Wylie today.  After two days of practice Robert found better fish in the areas of Bream beds.  "By 9;30 I didn't have a fish in the boat.  I had two little pockets that were producing well with buzzbaits, jigs and Zoom brush hogs.  I probably caught 30 fish today of which maybe a dozen were keeper fish.  I'm glad for this win, and now I can concentrate on the two day and the regional championship. My ultimate goal this season is to do well in the Ray Scott Championship at Wheeler.  This will be my first time on that lake. Having fished both Guntersville and Wilson I'd like to fill in the gap by doing well on Wheeler."

1 Robert Walser 5 17.22 250 $1798
