Carter Wins On Stockton

Athens, AL. – Jay Carter of Springfield, MO took the win on Stockton this past weekend with a limit weighing 14.17 and a big bass of 5.43 pounds. It was a cold morning in the mid-30s as 39 Missouri and Kansas anglers launch at the fourth of the American Bass Anglers Division 126 tournament.  Jay won $1135 cash and points that will qualify him to fish the D126 2-day Championship.

The top ten places weights ranged from 10.09 lbs to 14.17 lbs with several places within ounces of each other. Nine anglers weighed in the 5-fish limit; a total of 27 competitors weighed in at least one fish. Jerk baits, crank baits and jigs were the preferred lures. Fish came from all parts of the lake, from the clear water down lake to more stained water in the upper parts of the lake.
