Dillion Roth Wins the ABA District 47 tournament on the Arkansas River
ABA American Fishing Tour D47 held its first 2019 season tournament on 13 Oct 2018 on the Arkansas River launching from the Maumelle Park ramp. 17 anglers came out and were greeted with good river flow and changing weather conditions. There was plenty of fish to be caught as most anglers reported catching a lot of fish, but better than average bass was tough to find. 17 anglers weighed in 66 fish, a 3.88 fish/angler average.
Dillion Roth topped the field with five-fish for a total weight of 10.61-lbs. Dillion threw a chatter bait to catch his fish.
Chuck Ellis sacked up five-fish for a total weight of 10.03-lbs on a crankbait to finish in second place.
Rounding out the top three was Allen Stewart who also sacked up five-fish for a total weight of 10.03-lbs throwing topwater and jigs to fill his live well.
Jason Knight caught the big bass of the day at 5.6-lbs on a whopper plopper.
1st Dillion Roth 10.61 lbs 2nd Chuck Ellis 10.03 lbs 3rd Allen Stewart 10.03 lbs 4th Josh Ray 9.40 lbs 5th Donald Armbrust 9.18 lbs Big Bass Jason Knight 5.66 lbs
The next tournament in this division is on Lake Hamilton on 3 Nov 2018 launching out of the AGFC ramp.
