Don Armbrust Wins on Lake DeGray

ABA American Fishing Tour D47 held its sixth 2019 season tournament on 16 Feb 2019 on Lake DeGray.  Anglers were greeted with a cloudy and breezy day with temps in the 40’s.  Recent rains pushed the lake level up about two feet and muddied/stained many creeks.  Fishing was productive but larger fish where not present for this group today.

Don Armbrust topped the field with five fish for a total weight of 10.09-lbs.  Don threw crankbaits in 8-10 feet to fill his livewell.

Allen Fullbright sacked up five fish for a total weight of 8.39-lbs throwing a spinner bait around shallow cover to finish in second place.

Rounding out the top three was John Simonof who caught five fish for a total weight of 8.21-lbs throwing a variety of baits throughout the day.  

Bill Cerrato came in with the Big Bass of the day at 2.33-lbs caught flipping shallow cover.
