Story by John Simonof

Twenty-two anglers were greeted to a cool, damp, overcast morning at the second stop of the American Fishing Tour, Division 47 held on Lake Ouachita.

Although no umbrella-rigs were allowed, plenty of quality fish were caught using"traditional" late fall methods. 22 anglers fished today and caught 67 fish for a total weight of 135.51 pounds with 11 five bass limits crossing the scales.

Larry Vaughan brought in five bass for 17.13 pounds to take the win. Larry caught his fish on a jerkbait and took home $559 for his efforts.
