Gross & Albert Win on Old Hickory

The team of Keith Gross and Kelly Albert won the second divisional one day of the Ram 100% Plus Team Tour event on April 22, 2017 at Old Hickory. Launching out of Flipper’s Bait and Tackle, Gross and Albert brought in the winning limit weighing 20.43 pounds with a 5.26-pound kicker to win a new 2017 Triton Boats 17TX with a Mercury 60hp four stroke outboard, Garmin Echomap units, Motorguide trolling motor, and a host of T-H Marine products valued at $20,000. They also took home $1,100 from the High Stake Option Pot. 

“We went junk fishing today and caught most of our fish throwing a ½ ounce spinner bait that I had custom made for this tournament. They are made out of North Carolina from Dave’s Tournament Tackle, we also used K9 fishing line. We had a tough day, we caught one here and one there hitting the same spots numerous times,” stated Gross.

Jeremy Walker and Kevin Warren took second with an overall weight of 18.52 with a 4.87-pound kicker. They took home $2,400 as well as $500 from the High Stakes Option Pot given them a total winning of $2,900.

“We caught some of our fish throwing a swim jig in the grass as well as throwing a homemade jig. We had a limit by 7:00. We caught anywhere from 25-30 keepers. It was a fun day, we were just a little shy of the boat but maybe next time,” Walker stated. 

In third place was Josh Womack and Lance Oligschlaeger. They brought in a 17.74-pound bag with a 6.11-pound kicker and took home $1,600 for their efforts. They also took home $530 for the big bass given them a total of $2,130.

“We did a lot of running and gunning today. We threw most spinner baits, crank baits, and brush hogs. It was a slow day, we were fortunate enough to catch some fish. We were able to cull three times, the biggest fish we had came early, after that it was one here and one there,” Oligschlaeger stated.

4 –Billy Thorne & Scotty Webster– 17.66-pounds & 5.09-pound kicker

5 –Clark Cowley & Vincent Belcher – 17.65-pounds & 4.78-pound kicker
