Cody Arth Bags a Win at Audubon

The last regular American Bass Anglers tournament at Lake Audubon on Saturday started out with high winds and rain but that didn't stop the big bass from biting. Cody Arth from Bismarck took the win with one of the biggest bags caught on Audubon, a hefty three fish limit of 10.80 pounds. Cody also bagged the big bass at 4.06 pounds to take the lead for angler of the year. Cody Arth found the big smallies in isolated weed patches feeding on bait fish. His lure of choice was a tube jig jerked over the top of the weeds. Cody recorded his first ABA win and collected $294 and the oak championship plaque.
Paul Reinbold of Dickinson took second place with a very nice three fish limit of 9.56 pounds, also fishing weed lines but with a spinner bait and a 1.5 crankbait along the edges. In third place was Dick Roland of Crosby with two fish weighing 6.60 pounds, caught on a tube jig fishing a sunken island. Finishing up in fourth was Shawn Keena of Bismarck and fifth place went to Klae Ryan of Minot.
The last North Dakota ABA tournament will be a two day division championship on Lake Sakakawea on Sept. 13th and 14th, leaving out of Ft. Stevenson State Park.
