Jim Davidson Wins Stockton Tournament

Jim Davidson Wins Stockton Tournament

Arma, Kansas angler, Jim Davidson took the win at the American Bass Anglers Division 126 tournament December 28, 2013 (re-scheduled from December 21st) on Stockton Lake. The weather was perfect, starting out in lower 30’s and getting up to lower 50’s with some southerly wind and lots of sunshine.

This was Davidson’s first ABA tournament, but he is no stranger to Stockton Lake, as he took an easy win with a five fish limit that tipped the scales at 17.01 pounds, anchored with the second largest bass that went 5.33 pounds. He reported fishing most of the day in the mid-lake area and caught his fish on jerk baits and an A-rig. Davidson took home $468 for the day’s work.

Second place went to Eric Craft of Erie, Kansas. Craft weighed in a limit of five fish weighing a total of 14.18 pounds and took Big Bass award with a 5.82 pounder. He also reported catching fish on the A-rig and other soft plastic. Craft was awarded a total of $452 for his efforts.

Brian Thompson of Springfield, Missouri took third with a 12.88 pound limit. The next four places were very close with Ashley Medley following in fourth place with 11.66 pounds, a fifth place weight of 11.60 pounds for Matt Theil, a sixth place finish for Robert Swearngin weighing-in 11.36 pounds, and a seventh place  finish for Carl Cox with his 11.04 pound bag.

Anglers are fishing for cash, prizes and points that qualify them to fish a National Championship and Division Angler-of-the-Year. The Angler-of-the-Year honors will be awarded to the angler with the most points calculated by totaling points from the four best one-day tournaments and the two-day tournament. The AOY will be qualified to a “Fish-off” held in conjunction with the ABA National Championship on Old Hickory Lake in Tennessee October 22-24, 2014. The winner of the “fish-off” will receive a fully rigged Triton boat. Current standings put Eric Craft in the lead with 593 points, Carl Cox in second place with 577 points and Jim Banks in third with 574 points. The Angler of the Year race is still wide open as there are four more scheduled one-day events and the two-day, all on Stockton Lake.

ABA was designed for the week-end angler and is open to boaters and non-boaters. It is a draw format with partner pairing taking place the morning of each tournament. Anglers from age 14 can enter these tournaments. Prizes for this event were donated by Happy O’s Resort, Eagle Claw Tackle, Apounders Marine, The Outboard Doctor,  Antlers Ridge and Pete’s Convenience Stores.

The next tournament will be January 18, 2014. View full results of this and past tournaments as well as the 2014 schedule at www.centralmidwestbass.com. Call Becky at 316 644-1454 with any questions.
