Walmart BFL Buckeye Division 6/28/2014 Ohio River Results

Frank McClain of Scottsburg, Ind., weighed a five-bass limit totaling 11 pounds, 8 ounces Saturday to win the second Walmart Bass Fishing League Buckeye Division tournament of 2014 on the Ohio River at Tanner’s Creek. For his victory, McClain earned $6,235.

“The bad thing was that I didn’t get to practice,” McClain sad. “I hadn’t been on the Ohio River since fall, so I was just winging it.”

McClain said that he made a 25-mile run toward the dam where he expected to see fewer competitors and more stable water.

“I started fishing some flats in some creeks and by 9:20 in the morning I had my limit,” McClain said. “I ended up culling five times.

“There was a lot of bait around submerged stumps,” explained McClain. “I knew the area pretty well and I would throw to the dark spots that were stumps. The bass and the shad fry were using the stumps as cover. As soon as I caught my first fish I knew what to target.”

McClain said that he used an 1/8-ounce Hawgback Lures buzzbait in a custom color to catch his winning limit.
