Larry Laney Wins on Lake Guntersville

Larry Laney of Bryant, Alabama is one step closer to the 2017 ABA National Championship with a first place win during the Ram AFT D29 event held at Lake Guntersville on the 15th of April. Larry caught one of the three limits brought to the scales on this increasingly stingy fishery. His weight of 15.70 pounds was anchored by the biggest bass of the day, a 6.46 pound hawg! Larry used reaction baits to catch fish throughout the day.

Finishing in second place was Ken Draskovic with 12.12 pounds. Ken used his trusted crankbait to entice only five bites all day long.

A first for this division was the bag of five spotted bass brought to the scales by Mike Garlen with his ever present fluke rig.

Top Five Finishers:
1. Larry Laney           15.70 lbs
2. Ken Draskovic        12.12 lbs
3. Richard Fanning     8.54 lbs
4. Michael Garlen       8.24 lbs
5. Joey Shelton          8.00 lbs

The next event scheduled for D29 will be held on May 27th out of Guntersville. For more information on this event or any future events, please contact Mike Garlen at (256)998-0171.

These anglers are earning valuable points toward the divisional angler of the year title. The points champion from each division will compete in the annual Ram American Bass Anglers AFT Angler of the Year Final Round at the Ram American Fishing Tour National Championship.

The Ram American Fishing Tour offers low cost, close to home bass tournaments that are designed for the weekend angler. All ABA anglers fish for money and points.
