Lowery Wins $2200 in Georgia Event on Lake Sinclair

David Lowery of Milledgeville, GA won the Bass Pro Shops Open Series Georgia Division tournament, held September 12th on Lake Sinclair. Running out of Dennis Station Ramp in Eatonton, GA David caught five bass that locked in the scales at 13.73 pounds. For the Boater Division victory, Lowery took home a check for $2200 for his win.

“I caught two good fish this morning on topwater early and then I couldn’t get bit anymore, so I ran way up the Oconee river and started punching a Big Bite Baits Kamikaze Craw in the hydrilla.” Lowery said.  

In second for the boaters, Matt Henry of Milledgeville, GA landed a five-bass tournament limit going 11.40 pounds.

“It was a grind today. I started off down the lake then moved up to the mid-lake area and caught my fish to topwater all day today. I was throwing a frog, a buzzbait, and a walking bait. I probably caught around 20 keepers, but the fish were almost all the same size.” Henry said. 

Mike Blackshear of Macon, GA took third for the boaters with five bass going 11.34 pounds. 

“I caught my fish way up the Oconee river today. I couldn’t get bit on topwater so I threw a spinnerbait and also a Texas-rig on the edge of grass beds.” Blackshear said.

The big bass award for the boaters went to Deacon Collins of Tyrone, GA for a big bass that weighed 5.59 pounds. Collins collected $350 for the big bass award.

“I caught that big bass on a shakey-head in a brush-pile first thing this morning.” Collins said.

Finishing fourth, Grant Kelly of Milledgeville, GA landed a five-bass limit for 10.49 pounds. Jim Windham of Bonaire, GA rounded out the top five boaters with five bass at 8.19 pounds.

In the Co-Angler Division, Michael Mincey of Mansfield, GA won with three bass going 7.87 pounds which also included a 5.17 big bass for the co-anglers. Mincey collected a check for $700 for the win and $100 for the big bass award.

“I caught my fish on swim jigs and buzzbaits today. It was a better morning bite and became a grind after lunchtime today. I caught that big bass on a swim jig around 10:00am.” Mincey said. 

Taking second for the co-anglers, Hugh Phillips of Kathleen, GA brought in three bass weighing 6.92 pounds. 

“I caught my fish on a swim jig and spinnerbait today. I did catch one fish on a speed worm, but my big fish came on a swim jig in the grass.” Phillips said. 

Tony Adams of Tifton, GA placed third among the co-anglers with three bass going 6.09 pounds. 

“I caught fish and lost fish on a chatter-bait today. I lost four fish that would’ve helped me win today. I even broke off on a fish in the hydrilla with monofilament line that I switched to because I was pulling the chatterbait out of their mouths with braid. “Adams said. 

In fourth place among the co-anglers, Harold Driver of Powder Springs, GA brought in two bass for 5.05 pounds. Phillip Johnson of Griffin, GA finished in fifth place with three bass for 4.43 pounds.

Tom and Missy take the win and the GLine Battery $100 Bounty on Cooper River

We couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day on the Cooper River with mild temperatures and sunny skies!  We had eight teams come out to compete with every team bringing fish to the scales.  Several teams commented on how clear the water was and how many big bass they watched swimming but couldn’t get to bite.  It seems that the most productive bite was on crank baits and worms.  

Tom and Missy Bancroft took First Place with 5 largemouth bass weighing 8.15 lbs. earning $360.  We caught our bass on crankbaits in the morning and shaky head worms in the afternoon.
