Pritchard Wins D42 Tournament on AR River/Pine Bluff

Story by John Simonof

The American Fishing Tour, Division 42 of American Bass Anglers held its first qualifying tournament of the 2014 season on the Arkansas River, Pine Bluff Pool, April 12, 2014. Most anglers were able to bring in a few fish with nine anglers finding five fish limits. 20 anglers caught 74 fish weighing 180.13 pounds - a 2.43 pound average.

Chuck Pritchard topped with leader board with a 5 fish limit weighing 16.81 lbs. Chuck threw jigs and soft plastics to sack up his fish and took home $488 for his efforts. Chuck also caught the biggest bass of the tournament, a 5.17 pound fish good for another $100.

Ken Kesner earned $295 for second place. He hauled in five fish that weighed 14.18 pounds using floating worms.

Rounding out the top three was Vaugn McCarter. He caught five fish throwing soft plastics and earned $97 for his efforts.

These anglers acquired valuable points to insure their entry into the division’s two-day championship on Arkansas River/Maumelle Pool in Aug 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 24 May 2014 on the Arkansas River/Little Rock Pool launching out of the Murray Park Ramp.
