GAINESVILLE, Ga. – The navigator Brock Turner of Jasper, Georgia, brought a total of 10 days of 10 basses to the scale with a weight of 33 pounds, 7 ounces, to win the super bulldog division of the Marine Fisheries League of TH Marine FLW ( BFL) two days -Torneo on Lake Lanier on Sunday. Turner earned $ 8,266 for his efforts.
"He was mainly fishing for fresh bushes and humps in 15 to 25 feet of water," said Turner, who earned his first professional victory in the FLW competition. "I fished mainly in the extreme south, and caught around 10 to 15 porters per day."
Turner weighed a five-low limit totaling 13 pounds and 2 ounces on the first day to finish the day in 14th place. Although he was more than 4 pounds behind the leader of the first day, Kelly Bagley, Turner knew that the weather forecast for the second day he would have it in dispute for the victory.
"The first day the cloud cover hurt me, but on the second day the clouds left and bit like they were supposed to," Turner said. "We've been catching them well since July. The bite was much better at the end of the day, both days. I just had to be patient.
Turner said he caught his fish in four main baits: a scrounger template with Zoom Super Fluke, a Fish Head Spin with Zoom Super Fluke, a spoon and a spy. Its weighing limits consisted of nine stained basses and a largemouth.
"I caught a big surprise mouth on the second day," Turner said. "It was a 3½ pounds, and it turned out that I was in the same place where I captured my biggest bass, a 5 pounds, on the first day."
