Bateman Takes The Win On The Potomac River

ATHENS, Al. – Tom Bateman of Welcome MD, won the Bass Pro Shops Open Series event held on the Potomac River on 7/18/21. Running out of Smallwood State Park, Bateman weighed in a five bass limit weighing 15.58 pounds. 

“The windy conditions turned the fish onto a spinnerbait for me today,” said Batemen. “I caught all of my fish on a spinnerbait.”  

Taking second for the boaters, Joe Booker of North East MD, weighed in five bass weighing 13.29 pounds.

“I was around fish all day, they were just hard to catch. I caught them all on a Senko,” said Booker.

Taking third for the boaters Kermit Crowder of Matoaca VA, weighed in five bass weighing 12.36 pounds.    
 
“The wind today pretty much killed the frog bite so I ended up catching them flipping the grass,” said Crowder.  
  
In fourth place for the boaters, Phillip Banks of Warrenton VA, weighed in five bass weighing 12.26 pounds. Rounding out the top five, Pablo Velazquez weighed in five bass weighing 11.82 pounds.

“I had a good boater today that had us around quality fish. I caught two on a senko and one on a popper said Moffat. 

In second place for the co-anglers, Robert Wedding of Welcome MD, weighed in three bass weighing 8.79 pounds. His limit was anchored by a bass weighing 3.35 pounds. 

We had windows of opportunity to get bit, then it would die for a couple of hours. I caught my fish on a swim jig, a frog and a couple flipping said Wedding.

In third place for the co-anglers James Davis of Baltimore MD, weighed in three bass weighing 7.39 pounds. His limit was anchored by a bass weighing 3.54 pounds which was the biggest bass weighed in by a co-angler. Davis took home $435.00.

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.
