Tim Crow Wins the D47 Tournament on Lake Hamilton

Tim Crow Wins the D47 Tournament on Lake Hamilton

Story by John Simonof

The American Fishing Tour, Division 47 of American Bass Anglers held its fourth qualifying tournament of the 2014 season on Lake Hamilton, on December 14, 2013.  A mostly cloudy day with a forecast of high winds and a chance of rain were expected by the end of the day.  In the end, no rain showed but the wind started to pick-up as the weigh-in approached.  Hamilton produced 16 limits with lots of largemouth weighed-in.  26 anglers caught 104 fish weighing 192.81 pounds for a 1.85 pound average, which is a 0.5 pound heavier per fish average than Dec 2012.

Tim Crow topped with leader board with a five fish limit weighing 18.71 pounds.  Tim cranked a Norman Lures Little N crankbait to sack up his fish.  He also caught the big bass for the tournament, a 6.11 pound toad.  Tim took home $705 for his efforts.

Dennis LaGrange earned $349 for his second place finish. He hauled in five fish weighing a total of 13.66 pounds using an A-rig.

Doug Thompson caught five fish weighing 13.25 pounds which was good enough for third place and $123.  Doug caught his fish on a Perfect 10 Rouge jerkbait and a Booyah football jig.

The rest of the money and prize winners are as follows:
4. Rob Stone           11.27 Lbs.        $97
5. John Simonof     10.19 Lbs.        6 Free Norman Lure Crankbaits
6. Danny Vocque      9.53 Lbs.       6 Free Norman Lure Crankbaits

These anglers acquired valuable points to insure their entry into the division’s two-day championship on Lake Hamilton in Apr 2014 and the American Fishing Tour National Championship that will be held on Old Hickory Lake, TN in October 2014.  Their points are also being used to determine the divisional angler of the year.

Next Divisional Tournament: This division’s next tournament will be January 11, 2014 on the Lake Ouachita launching out of the Crystal Springs Ramp.
