Brian Bean Wins on Lake Oauchita

Brian Bean of Hot Springs, Arkansas took the win for the AFT D47 event held on February 11th on Lake Ouachita. Brian topped the field with five fish and a total weight of 16.42 pounds. Brian threw a jig to catch his fish. He also collected $640 for his efforts.

Mark Ellis was a close second. He sacked up five fish for a total weight of 16.22 pounds caught on a Chatterbait.

Rounding out the top three was Spencer Shuffield who threw a crankbait to catch five fish for a total weight of 15.80 pounds.

26 anglers came out on a seasonally warm mid-February day. A recent warming trend pushed the water temperatures from the upper 40’s to the mid to high 50’s getting the fish moving and hungry. Sixteen 5-fish limits were weighed and 94 fish crossed the scales for a total weight of 216.11 pounds. 

Big Bass of day weighed 5.16 pounds and was caught by Allen Fullbright.

Top Five Finishers:
1. Brian Bean             16.42 lbs
2. Mark Ellis               16.22 lbs
3. Spencer Shuffield    15.80 lbs
4. Josh Ray                14.53 lbs
5. Dennis LaGrange    14.33 lbs

The next tournament in this division is on Lake Maumelle on 4 March 2017 launching out of the Jolly Roger Marina.
