Royal Purple Pro Michael Smith Wins at Lake Eufaula


Athens, Al - Michael Smith of Laurel Hill, FL weighed in 10 fish that weighed 30.12 pounds to win the Weekend Bass Series Alabama South event 2014-09-27 on Eufaula.

"On Day One, I started off throwing a frog in the pads. I caught a five pounder and two three pounders and then went and flipped for a while. I flipped up one about three pounds and then caught one about two pounds in a brush pile. I laid off those fish yesterday, since I knew I had a good bag of fish and if I wasn't leading, I'd be near the top. On Day Two, I started off doing the same thing. I caught a five pounder on a frog in the same area that I did on Day One. That was the only fish I had on a frog on Day Two, so I went to the brush piles. I caught a three and a half pounder out of the brush that I didn't fish on Day One. I finished out my limit with a Missle Craw. It's a really slender craw with a 5/16 ounce weight. I went to a different place and flipped a D-Bomb in a grass mat and caught a five pounder." said Smith 

"I'm proud to be part of the Royal Purple pro staff as well.  Running Royal Purple gives me the confidence to not worry about having any motor issues while on the water," said Smith.

Athens, Al - Chris Sanders of Stockbridge, GA weighed in 10 fish that weighed 27.33 pounds to win the Weekend Bass Series Georgia event 2014-09-20 on Eufaula.

"I tried to start out in the pads, but I just couldn't get the bites I needed. They were just not hitting the way they were in practice. So, I moved out to a hump that I fish every time I fish Eufaula. I caught my fish on the first day dead sticking a shakeyhead. I caught my fish on Day Two dead sticking a football head jig on that same hump. Both days I had to wait on the fish to eat the baits." said Odyssey Pro Chris Sanders.

"I was especially proud to be a member of the Odyssey pro staff during this event.  On Day Two I sat on that one hump all day long running my aerators and electronics without ever cranking my outboard.  My outboard cranked right up at the end of the day! Odyssey is the only battery that I've ever had that can do that," said Sanders.

Kip Carter of Monticello, GA finished second with a two day total of 22.51 pounds.
