Gleason Takes Home $6000 for Toledo Bend Win

Darold Gleason of Leesville, LA won the Texas Southeast Division Ram Truck Open Series event at Toledo Bend on March 26, 2016. Gleason weighed in a 24.37 pound limit of Toledo bend bass to win $6300. “I actually started really close. I caught my big one, an 8.11, real early in the morning in about 10 feet of water. We ended up going out to a deep spot. I’ve been on the water a good bit and the shallow bite is just not great. I did most of my damage out deep with a Carolina rig and a crankbait. I was lucky that I got two really big bites. It was one of those days where everything just came together. Right now, this is the number one lake in the country and I was just scared to death that someone was going to come in with 31 pounds and knock me out of the lead,” said Gleason.
