Ingram Wins $10,000 in Area 3 Championship on Lake Eufaula

Ryan Ingram won the American Bass Anglers Ram Truck Open Series Area 3 Championship tournament, held September 23RD & 24TH, 2017 on Lake Eufaula. Running out of Lakepoint Resort State Park in Eufaula, Ryan caught five bass on day one weighing 23.10 pounds including a 6.90-poind kicker. On day two, Ingram weighed in another five-bass limit that weighed 17.12 pounds and that sealed the deal for his victory by almost a five-pound margin with a total weight of 40.22 pounds. For the Boater Division victory, Ingram took home a check for $10,000 for his win and an additional $750 for Big Bass.

“On day one, I thought I could catch about 15 to 16 pounds but I had two big bites, just random bites. I caught most of my fish on a crankbait and the 6.90-pound big bass on a one-ounce StrikeZone Lure Ledgebuster spinnerbait. I caught most of my fish mid-lake on day one and on day two, I fished all the way to the dam on the lower end of the lake.”  Ingram said.  

In second for the boaters, Dustin Wood of Eufaula, AL landed two five-bass tournament limits totaling 35.52 pounds. He collected $1300 for his catch.

“I caught my fish on day one also on a StrikeZone Lure Ledgebuster spinnerbait and a StrikeZone Lure Ledgebuster Sling Blade spinnerbait with a few modifications I made to it. I caught a few cranking on day one. On day two, I had to slow down and I caught my fish dragging a football jig and scraped by with what I got. Just got lucky.”  Wood said.

 Anthony Goggins of Clanton, AL placed third for the boaters with two five-bass tournament limits totaling 32.99 pounds. He earned $900 for his catch.

“I caught my fish shallow early and then went off-shore later in the day trying to catch a big one. I lost two good fish on day one and one-really good fish on day two that would have helped me.” Goggins said.

In fourth place among the boaters, Chandler Ray of Arlington, GA brought in two five-bass limits totaling 29.75 pounds. Ken Greene of Lumpkin, GA finished in fifth place with two five-bass limits totaling 27.16 pounds.

In the Co-Angler Division, Richard Hudson of Ramer, AL won with a total of five bass that weighed 15.54 pounds with a 5.94-pound kicker that was caught on day two. He pocketed a check for $5,000 for his win and $210 for the big bass.

“I was fishing a frog from daylight until weigh-in both days, and I’m tired of looking at one. I want to thank my day one boater for giving me that frog and I caught every fish I weighed in on that frog. We fished around mid-lake both days fishing Lilly pads in the morning and grass in the afternoon.”  Hudson said.

Taking second for the co-anglers, Robert Enke of Columbus, GA brought in two three-bass limits totaling 13.34 pounds. He collected $350 for the effort.

“I fished clean both days and I caught my fish on a shaky-head and a jig.” Enke said. “

Sam Fish of Alexander City, AL placed third among the co-anglers with two three-bass limits totaling 13.12 pounds. He earned $300 for his catch.

“I caught my fish on day one Carolina-rigging shallow points backed off the Lilly pads. We probably caught 75 fish but they just weren’t the quality fish that we needed for this event. On day two, I drew out with a boater that was fishing Lilly pads with frogs and buzz baits. I had five bites today and caught every fish that bit. I had one fish that was deceased, so Robert (Enke) got a little more money than I did. I do want to thank Boyd Duckett and Duckett Fishing, they sponsor me and I recommend them for anyone that wants a good rod to go frog fishing.” Fish said.

In fourth place among the co-anglers, Barry Jones of Verbena, AL brought in two three- bass limits totaling 11.31 pounds. Hunter DuBose of Andalusia, AL finished in fifth place with two three-bass limits totaling 10.99 pounds.

The next tournament will be the Ray Scott Championship. At the end of the season, the best anglers from across the nation advance the 2018 Ray Scott Championship to be held on the Red River near Shreveport, Louisiana.
