RODNEY SORENSEN WINS ON JACKSON

Congratulations to Rodney Sorensen of Gray, Ga for taking the win at Lake Jackson on April 28, 2018  for the AFT D72 tournament.  Rodney found his fish very shallow using a brush hog.  His five fish sack weighed in at 13.04 pounds, and Rodney took home $723 for the first place finish.

James Dudley of McDonough, Ga took the trophy for Big Bass and $165 for his bass weighing 4.60 pounds.

After recent heavy rain, the lake was full pool and the water was muddy to stained.  Saturday was sunny, and the water temperature was in the upper sixties.  Many anglers caught fish using a Spinnerbait on the rocks. More than half of the 33 anglers brought in a 5 fish limit.  A total of 118 fish were caught, and all were released alive

Congratulations to the Top Ten:
1 - Rodney Sorensen -   13.04 pounds - $723
2 - Randall Woodham - 11.56 pounds - $454
3 - Larry Cason -          11.53 pounds - $187
4 - Roger White -          11.10 pounds - $144
5 - Barry Collins -        10.18 pounds - $108
6 - Todd Clark-             9.95 pounds 
7 - Bruce Askew -         9.75 pounds 
8 - Joey Dobbs -           8.89 pounds
9 -  Chris Sanders -      8.82 pounds
10 - Chad Wilson -       7.93 pounds

After the awards of trophies and cash payouts, there were drawings for all anglers that were present. Three $50 bills were won by Duke Roberson, Bruce Askew, and Tommy Cooper.  Several soft pack coolers and a hat were provided by Frank Speights as draw prizes.  Danny Taylor assisted with the tournament by checking boats before launch and weighing fish at 3pm.

The next tournament for D72 will be on June 2, 2018  on Lake Oconee, going out of Sugar Creek Marina.
