Hahne Takes Oklahoma Opener

Darren Hahne of Ottawa, IL won the Oklahoma division opener of the RAM Weekend Bass Series at Lake Tenkiller on March 21st, 2015. Hahne weighed in a 14.79 pound limit to take the win and claimed $3000 for first place and $563 from the High Stakes Option Pot. He used a Megabass jerkbait in 10-12 feet of water around the mid lake area to catch his limit of smallmouth. "I had a good time and a great co-angler. It was a lot of fun, especially since I haven't fished Tenkiller in 23 years," said Hahne.

Mark Johnson of Weleetka, OK finished in second place with 12.41 pounds to win $1351. "It was really tough with slick water and no wind. I keyed in on dirty water in the mid lake area using a red craw pattern medium crankbait," said Johnson.

Brandon Mosely of Choctaw, OK finished third with 11.76 pounds winning $910 for third place and $286 from the High Stakes Option Pot "I started in a clear water pocket with 50-51 degree water using a jerkbait and couple a couple of fish. Later, I moved to a dock line where I caught some fish with a spinnerbait on Friday. My first pass on the docks produced nothing, but I caught them on the second pass," Mosley.

Don Turner of Wagner, OK caught the boater Big Bass. His 5.99 pound bass and 10th place finish was worth $852.

Anthony Harris of Westville, OK took home the co-angler trophy for catching 7.17 pounds and the 4.46 pound co-angler Big Bass. He collected $1129 for hid day's work. "I caught my first one right off the bat and I didn't catch another one for six hours. My Big Bass came on a jig, but I did use a jerkbait as well throughout the day," said Harris.

Steven Houchin of Oklahoma City, OK finished second with 6.91 pounds winning $491. "We went way up river, started flipping, and I caught one there. Then, we moved back to the main lake and threw a jerkbait. I used a Missile Baits D-Bomb and a Texas rig while flipping," said Houchin.

Justin Newell of Muskogee, OK finished in third with 4.62 pounds winning $332 for third place and $212 from the High Stakes Option Pot.

Patrick Fisher of Colbert, GA came in second with 22.56 pounds winning $1259 and $349 from the High Stakes Option Pot.  "I caught three fish early this morning on a Senko and then, went sight fishing. It was a fun day and I caught a lot of fish," said Fisher.

Victory for Green at Toho

Ronnie Green of Sebring, FL won the second Florida division RAM Weekend Bass event of the year at Lake Toho on March 14th, 2015. Green caught a 19.00 pound limit to secure his win and a $4000 first place check. "I went down to Kissimmee, where I feel more comfortable. I used the Gary Yamamoto Swimming Senko. The thing is a beast. I call it "the truth", because every time I throw it out there, those fish are going to find it. We found a small area that I thought would be holding fish, since I had not been out on the water. I didn’t even decide that I was fishing this event until Thursday, but we got on some fish with those Swimming Senkos and things just worked out," said Green.

The second place boater with 18.49 pounds was Jeremy Smith of Plant City, FL winning $1785 for second place and $742 from the High Stakes Option Pot. "I caught fish in all three lakes. I started out in Toho catching two fish, caught two fish down on Kissimmee, and caught one in Hatchineha. There were quite a few fish I lost that would have given me the half pound that I needed to win. I started by throwing a Rat-L-Trap and I kept losing fish, then I started flipping a Senko type bait to catch my big ones," said Smith.

Juan Ruiz of West Palm Beach, FL finished third with 18.47 pounds winning $1199. "I actually went to all four lakes. Started out in Toho, went to Cypress, went to Hatchneha, and went to Kissimmee, where I caught my big fish. I ran back to Toho and got on some "schoolies" at the end of the day. All of my fish came on a Gambler Burner Worm and a Gambler Ribbon Tail," said Ruiz.

The 11.78 pound Big Bass went to Troy Olivier of Lakeland, FL also finishing in fourth place. Olivia won $846 for fourth place of 17.56 pounds, $920 for Big Bass, and $376 from the High Stakes Option Pot. "I caught the Big Bass around noon today and I didn't have any fish at that point. I ran down to Kissimmee, caught a 12 or 13 incher, threw back in the same hole, and caught the big one. Then, I moved around to the other side of the patch of grass, caught three more 13 inchers, and headed to the weigh in," said Olivier.

First place on the co-angler side went to Keith Stills of Eustis, FL with 11.81 pounds including the day's co-angler Big Bass, a 6.34 pound largemouth. First place paid Stills $1500, along with $295 for Big Bass, and $336 from the High Stakes Option Pot. “We started out in Toho and then ran to Kissimmee. Everybody was going to Kissimmee today. I caught the "big girl" on a Devil’s Horse and the rest swimming a jig,” said Stills.

Bryan Jones of Zephyrhills, FL came in second place with 10.60 pounds earning $733 and $171 from the High Stakes Option Pot. "We fished Kissimmee. I was throwing a Gambler Fat Ace and a Sweet Beaver in junebug color. All of the fish came around grass and pads," said Jones.

Finishing in third was Eddie Scaturro of Orlando, FL with 8.94 pounds. Scaturro took home a $493 check for third and $115 from the High Stakes Option Pot. "We were fishing Lake Toho and I caught my fish on three different things. I caught my fish on a Skinny Dipper, on a crawdad, and on a speed worm. I only had four bites all day and got three of them in the boat," said Scaturro.

I pitched a jig next to a pole and caught a three or four pounder. About 2:30, I caught the big on spinnerbait in shallow water," said Dean.
