Eric Turner Wins the ABA District 47 tournament on Lake DeGray

The last 1-day qualifying tournament of the American Fishing Tour D47 was held on 10 Feb 2018 on Lake DeGray launching from the spillway ramp.  14 anglers came out and were greeted with rainy and foggy conditions.  A recent warming trend had given way to cooler temps keeping the water temps in the mid 40’s across most of the lake. Lots of fish were caught, but not to many larger fished crossed the scales.

Eric Turner topped the field with five fish for a total weight of 9.40 lbs.  Eric fished a homemade custom color jig with a Slider trailer on a Dobyns 743 HP and Lew’s reel spooled up with 17lb Vicious Pro Elite Fluorocarbon line.

Don Armbrust sacked up five fish for a total weight of 9.01 lbs. on a Rat-L-Trap to finish in second place.

Rounding out the top three was Rob Stone who sacked up five fish for a total weight of 8.43 lbs. throwing Rat-L-Trap to fill his livewell.

Bill Cerrato caught the big bass of the day at 4.59 lbs.

1st  Eric Turner 9.40 lbs. $406
2nd  Don Armbrust 9.01 lbs. $200
3rd  Rob Stone 8.43 lbs. $79
4th  Bill Cerrato 8.19 lbs. $50 Gift card to Geared
5th  Ray Neighbors 7.22 lbs. $50 Gift card to Geared
