Knight Wins Walmart Bass Fishing League Volunteer Division Event On Douglas Lake
Neece wins co-angler title
Knight's win was his first BFL victory since 2005, and it came on a lake that he hadn't fished in over 20 years.
I practiced on Friday and just dropped the trolling motor down and caught about 20 pounds on a jig," said Knight. "I went right back there on Saturday and they were still there.
"I was just hopping a jig down rock ledges. I was casting into about 2-feet and letting it fall down the ledges. When they'd hit you would definitely know it."
Knight said he was throwing a kudzu-colored Choo Choo Custom Lures jig.
Rounding out the top 10 pros were:
Jim Neece of Bristol, Va., weighed in three bass totaling 12 pounds, 2 ounces Saturday to win $1,796 in the co-angler division.
Rounding out the top 10 co-anglers were:
The top 40 boaters and 40 co-anglers based on point standings will qualify for the Oct. 9-11 Regional Championship on Pickwick Lake in Florence, Ala. Boaters will compete for a top award of a Ranger Z518C with a 200-horsepower Evinrude or Mercury outboard and a Chevy Silverado, while co-anglers will fish for a new Ranger Z518C with a 200-horsepower Evinrude or Mercury outboard.
The BFL is a 24-division circuit devoted to weekend anglers, with 120 tournaments throughout the season, five in each division. The top 40 boaters and co-anglers from each division qualify for a regional tournament and compete to finish in the top six, which then qualifies them for one of the longest-running championships in all of competitive bass fishing - the Walmart BFL All-American presented by Chevy. Top winners in the BFL can move up to the Rayovac FLW Series or even the Walmart FLW Tour.
