Jones Wins Palestine Two-Day Event

Keith Jones of Texarkana, TX won the East Texas RAM Weekend Bass Series two-day event on July 11th & 12th, 2015 at Lake Palestine running out of Villages Marina. His winning two-day limit of 32.86 pounds was worth $2363 for first place and $547 from the High Stakes Option Pot. "I found some fish that were biting topwater early in the day in some lily pads.  I was able to catch a limit on a frog before 8:00 AM on both days, but they were smaller fish around two pounds each.  I had caught a four pounder in practice flipping some timber with a D Bomb and a few others casting a Chatterbait, so I hoped to use the timber for my better fish and it paid off.  It's always a good feeling to have a limit early in the morning and I was fortunate enough to do that on both days.  I culled all five of the fish I caught from the pads on Day One.  I wasn't sure that the fish I found in the timber were going to replenish after the first day, so I left them after a few hours and went back to the pads, but on Day Two the same patterns worked again, culling all five for a second time and with better fish than yesterday.  I was very fortunate with the way things played out.  I haven't been to this lake in about 10 years before this tournament," said Jones.

Albert Collins Nacogdoches, TX finished in second place with a two-day total of 29.76 winning $1204 and $279 from the High Stakes Option Pot.  

Jackie Jayroe of Royse City, TX finished in third place with a two-day total of 27.02 pounds winning $816 and $189 from the High Stakes Option Pot.

Bret McLendon of Gilmer, TX weighed in the 6.99 pound Big Bass of the event to win $240 from the Big Bass Pot.

Randy Keating of Plano, TX won the co-angler side of the two-day Lake Palestine event with total of 13.86 pounds. Keating won $1168 for first place. "I had a good day the first day.  I think in all I caught between 10-12 fish and had a limit before noon.  I caught a solid keeper just after 12:00 PM and culled once, then culled a second time right before we left to head for weigh in.  We spent the day fishing rip rap early and I was catching fish on a worm. Later on, we went to some docks and that's where I culled up throwing a jig.  My 10.03 pounds on the first day was a great start, but I was nervous on the second day because I didn't want to lose the lead.  I only had two keepers today for a little over three pounds, but the fishing was tough and it was just enough weight to win.  My boaters were great on both days and I can't say enough to thank them," said Keating. 

Joe Embry of Tyler, TX finished in second on the co-angler side with two-day total of 11.79 pounds winning $594 for second place and $200 from the High Stakes Option Pot.

Jared Gilbert of Grand Prairie, TX finished in third place on the co-angler side with a two-day total of 10.54 pounds winning $402 for third place and $120 from the High Stakes Option Pot. 

Anthony Watts of The Colony, TX brought in the 4.05 pound co-angler Big Bass winning $110 from the Big Bass Pot.
