John Simonof Wins the ABA District 47 2-Day Championship on Lake Ouachita

The Bass Pro Shops Fishing Tour D47 held its 2020 season 2-day Championship on 30-31 May 2020 on Lake Ouachita launching from the Crystal Springs ramp.  Great weather had a lot of boats out on the water, but the fishing was a bit tough.  Anglers struggled to find quality fish throughout the weekend with water temps in the low 70’s and water four feet above normal pool.

John Simonof topped the field with five fish limit each day for a total weight of 14.41 lbs.  John threw a crankbait, with Owner replacement hooks, on a TFO crankbait rod spooled up with 10# Hi-Seas Quattro Fluorocarbon line to fill his livewell.  Additionally, John earned the Angler of the Year title for D47.

Moose McCoy sacked up six fish weighing 10.45 lbs.  Moose fished a Zoom Brush Hog to catch his fish.

Moose McCoy caught the big bass of day 1 at 2.74 lbs.
John Simonof caught the big bass of day 2 at 4.38 lbs.

1st     John Simonof        14.41 lbs
2nd     Moose McCoy        10.45 lbs
3rd     Doug Shrum          8.59 lbs
4th     Don Armbrust          7.10 lbs      
5th     Eric Turner          6.95 lbs

This tournament concluded the 2020 season for D47 of the American Bass Anglers American Fishing Tour.  The 2021 season will start around Sep/Oct 2020.

I cannot thank our local sponsors enough for their continued support for many years.  Thank you for supporting and recognizing our anglers.
