Akin leads Co-angler division
NATIONAL HARBOR, Md. (May 17, 2012) – Brian Maloney of Osage Beach, Mo., took the early lead at the Walmart BFL All-American presented by Chevy, with five bass that weighed 15 pounds, 4 ounces. He has a narrow 4-ounce lead over second place angler Mark Snyder of St. Johns, Miss., in one of the longest-running championships in all of competitive bass fishing.
     Hosted by National Harbor, the tournament features the top 49 boaters and top 49 co-anglers from across the country casting for top awards of up to $130,000 in the Boater Division and $60,000 in the Co-angler Division plus the opportunity to compete in the 2012 Forrest Wood Cup presented by Walmart on Lake Lanier Aug. 11-14.
      The top five anglers all indicated that the early-morning outgoing tide had the fish biting better than in the afternoon. Keying in on rock and structure seemed to be the predominate pattern for most of the anglers.
      “I really wasn’t doing anything fancy,” said Maloney, who qualified through the Missouri TBF chapter. “The fish were moving with the tide and I was just waiting for them to come to me. I’ll play that game all week. We keyed in on the outgoing low tide pretty quickly and probably had our limit by 11 a.m.
      “I was looking for ditches and troughs and found a rocky area that had a mud bottom and just bounced my bait off the rocks. I was using plastics - 3/16- to ¼-inch shaky heads.”

      Maloney, who was fishing on the Potomac River for the first time, said he had seven or eight keepers all day and that he is hoping for the same type of weather tomorrow - bluebird skies and warm temperatures.


Jake Akin of Powder Springs, Ga., leads the Co-angler Division with five bass weighing 14-3 followed by Robert Hime of Odessa, Mo., in second place with five bass weighing 13-2.
