Clark wins co-angler title
 
BAINBRIDGE, Ga. (March 24, 2012) – Brandon McMillan continues his dominance in tournament competition , as the Clewiston, Fla., pro weighed a five-bass limit totaling 17 pounds, 4 ounces Saturday to win the EverStart Series Southeast Division event on Lake Seminole with a three-day total of 13 bass weighing 51 pounds, 11 ounces. For his victory, McMillan earned $35,000 and a Ranger Z518 with a 200-horsepower Evinrude or Mercury outboard motor.
 
“Today was perfect timing for me to catch that shad spawn,” said McMillan. “The weather was overcast, breezy and foggy and that kept the shad around for another 20 minutes. I was fishing on the sand bars near Spring Creek, and just swinging a 4x4 Bass Jigs 3/8-ounce white swimjig. I was just swimming it through that grass early this morning, and the overcast weather allowed me to get the extra key minutes that really helped me to catch them.
 
“I had 11 bites today, and caught eight fish,” McMillan went on to say. “I was fishing anywhere from 2½ to 4½  feet of water. I would fish the sand bars in the morning, then go throw a worm real slow for the rest of the day. I also caught a few using a Gambler EZ Swimmer, white, with a big paddletail for good vibration. I figured coming in that it was going to take around 50 to 55 pounds to win this tournament, and I’m happy I was able to get there.”
 

McMillan said he would enjoy his victory, but he’s already thinking about the next EverStart Southeast division tournament at Santee Cooper.

 

Rounding out the top 10 pros were:
 
          2nd:   Rodger Beaver, Dawson, Ga., 15 bass, 51-10, $12,000
          3rd:   J.T. Kenney, Palm Bay, Fla., 15 bass, 49-10, $10,000
          4th:    Shaye Baker, Tallassee, Ala., 15 bass, 49-8, $9,000

Baker wins co-angler title
 
LAKE HAVASU CITY, Ariz. (Feb. 25, 2012) – Troy Lindner of Los Angeles, Calif., weighed a five-bass limit totaling 19 pounds, 6 ounces Saturday to win the EverStart Series Western Division event on Lake Havasu with a three-day total of 15 bass weighing 49 pounds, 11 ounces. For his victory, Lindner earned $29,665 and a Ranger Z518 with a 200-horsepower Evinrude or Mercury outboard motor.
 
“Honestly, this doesn’t feel real at all,” said Lindner. “I’m in shock. Coming in today in ninth place, I figured I would need 21 pounds to even make it close. I thought I basically had no chance. It’s a complete miracle I won this thing. My last nine tournaments with FLW, I haven’t cashed a check, so I took some time off and got my head and priorities straight. I think that preparation and a blessing from God is what did it for me today.
 
“I fished a lot of the small coves and the points leading into those coves,” Lindner continued. “I was using Trigger X baits for most of the tournament. My two biggest fish were caught on a Trigger X Aggression Spadetail worm and a Trigger X Flutter Worm. I was catching fish from 3 to 15 feet, basically wherever it banked off deep. The last part of the day, I sat an hour waiting on this one fish on a bed that I thought was a big one. Every 15 minutes I would go back and make a couple of casts at him. I finally got him to bite on the Spadetail worm, and he ended up being my second biggest fish of the tournament. I had about a dozen bites today, and was able to catch seven of them.
 
“I’ll definitely be fishing the next event at the (California) Delta,” Lindner went on to say. “I’ve been beaten pretty bad there in the past, so if I could cash a check there that would be another miracle.”
